Here is what i wrote Nashville board:

"Mikko Vainonen has good puck skills, but he is more shut down d-man and had a mean streak and he is a natural leader. He are so good in own end and give good first passes. For me, he is like a new Jere Karalahti, he is so similar, but don't have a drinking/drug problems like Karalahti. He was also captain in U18 championship Finnish team and won gold in HIFK junior A this year. I think he is absolutely steal. I think he go latest 3 round, but could go early second too. You get great prospect!"

So Vainonen is my favorite young player in HIFK and you get that 6th pick very good player. Lot of similar than London Jared Tinordi. He play last year 8 games in FNL and he do maybe only 1 little foul there, but he was one of the best against men in own end those games. I would wanted to see him in HIFK, but i think this is better for him get 1 (2) year in OHL.
