A list of players named Timo that the San Jose Sharks should call up, updated daily (or until one of these guys is actually called up):
- Timo Pärssinen. Drafted 102nd overall in 2001 by Anaheim, he played one season in North America in which he split time between the Ducks and their AHL club, Cincinnati. Pärssinen had himself a great career in Europe; he was Rookie of the Year in 1999, and in 2004 lead the Finnish League in goals and point on his was to capturing the league’s MVP and the Player of the Year (as voted on by the players). He played several more years, moving from Finland to Sweden and, finally, to Switzerland. Pärssinen retired in 2015, and it is surprising that he didn’t have more of an NHL career. I think the most likely explanation is that he was on the smaller side (listed 5’10, 180lbs when he retired) and played at a time when NHL clubs (pretty much all of them) still believed in playing enforcers and energy players on their third and fourth lines. Maybe he would have got more of a chance today, when at least some teams recognize the value of having skilled players throughout the lineup.
- Timo Seppa. Of all the Timos, he’s probably the most likely to ever read these rankings.
- Timo Nummelin. Sweet mustache. Two sport star.
- Timo Jutila. Was on Team Finland when they tied Canada in the round-robin stage of the 1991 Canada Cup.
- Timo Pielmeier. Whenever I think about the Pielmeier and Bonino for Huskins and Moen, I don’t get angry, I get confused. I don’t get that trade, and I probably never will.
- Timo Helbling. The first result on Youtube, when I search for his name, is this video that makes him look totally reasonable and cool.
- Timo Kimmonen. How many of you googled him yesterday?
- Timo Meier. Maybe reverse psychology will work on Doug Wilson?
