The Penguins took a chance on the guy and he has done nothing but prove they were right to see something in him. His skill has translated to a higher level, has done well when given the responsibility of being a leader, and works hard to improve his skating. I can't wait to see what a couple of years with the Pens at the professional level will do for his skating. They seem to work miracles with some players.

Ranking Hanowski above Blugers today might look very foolish in hindsight a few years down the road but right now I have to take the player that has taken the next step already over the dream of Blugers being this great Latvian, SSM product, Datsyuk-lite player for the Pens even though I'd like to see that as much as the next fan.
