Forget his stagnant progress in his last year and a half in Phoenix.

With the Avalanche, Ossi Vaananen had instant chemistry with Rob Blake, and was absolutely pounding opponents game-in and game-out. He was dominating players down low, and was really a rock defensively.

The guy averaged 18:36 of ice-time for us in the regular season, and it then increased to 22:06 in the playoffs.

I don't know what Modano=God is talking about... do you not remember Vaananen man-handling various Stars forwards throughout that five-game, quick process of elimination?
