He's a finnish player, drafted by the Habs few years ago. People here were saying he would play on a regular basis in Montreal...

Was never drafted. Just was signed as a free agent. For the Ville Leino's and the Fabian Brunnstrom's....there's a Janne Lahti....

I thought that Montreal drafted him in fourth round before signing him... A bit like Mark Streit. I might be wrong though.

EDIT : You seem to be right. He signed as a free agent.

Ah, you mean LAHTI, not Lathi
From what I remember it was just the HPK homeboys who thought he had any kind of NHL upside.

I was very impressed with his size, skating and skills as well, but he didn't seem to like physicality. I thought he had a shot at being a Hab myself.
