I interviewed him once, and he's a bit of a weird kid - kind of laid back and he plays laid back too. I don't think he'll be a great player.
i dunno doc... usually i'm all about your analysis but this guy has had success everywhere he's played and he's been a lot better lately and although i'm not sure how good he'll turn up... i just think he'll atleast be a good 2nd line player if he gets support...

as for everyone picking vaananen over ribeiro... i dunno, maybe its just been because i've seen more of ribeiro ( i live in mtl) than vaananen (whom i haven't seen that much of) but he's our leading scorer, he's getting better every game, he's got more points that players like lecavalier, richards, gagne, bonk, etc... and he's got a lot less of a supporting cast than any of those guys

my picks...
i guess grebeshkov (but i dont think for long)
wowitka (because he's older mostly... alex has a higher ceiling by far)
hamhuis (he's further along )
parise (although i think both wil be solid pros - ALL you kings fans will regret passing on this guy IMO)

btw, why so much hab haters?
i almost get the feeling we could put a poll of whos better between komi and mike van ryn and most of you would vote for van ryn...
