Why do you see Välimäki as the most promising D from 98's? Can't say that I know his game inside out, but I wasn't particularly impressed when I saw him. Välimäki was selected to Pohjola camp all-stars, but I'm not sure if that means much. Last year Atte Töyry received the same honour and he wasn't that special either, as shown by that fact that he wasn't even a regular with the U16 national team this season.

Janne Kuokkanen might turn out to be a fairly interesting prospect from this age group, not the most well rounded player but has pretty good puck skills.
