This is rare: According to Iltahleti’s Pekka Jalonen, the Red Wings and Teemu Pulkkinen’s agent, Krister Kaukinen, are working out the details of Pulkkinen’s three-year, entry-level contract with the Wings, but as Iltahleti’s a bit of a tabloid, Kaukinen’s being given a platform to “talk tough” about said contract. Here’s an incredibly, incredibly rough translation of what Pulkkinen’s agent had to say:
20-year-old Jokerit forward Teemu Pulkkinen’s living in exciting times. Pulkkinen’s agent is continually talking with the Detroit Red Wings.
“We recently talked to Detroit on Wednesday, and on Thursday evening we’ll continue to negotiate. Some issues are still open. Let’s see what happens,” Pulkkinen’s representative, Krister Kaukinen, said.
