Ville Lajunen

Just by looking at his stats, It seems like hes had impresive year.

Hes young and has pretty good size, But my main question is hows his skating and do you think he has NHL potenial?

Skating is his biggest weakness. He also makes a bit too much mistakes, although he had one of the best +/- in the team too.

He got lots of points on PP: He is good passer and also has a hard shot but not very accurate one, either hitting first man ahead or way off the net.

I think he will move to NA very soon. He has lots of potential but as ES said, he has a lot to improve. This year was definately his breakthrough season and he has been talked about a lot in the media.

I think that Lajunen must also improve his defensive game. Sure he has huge offensive talent and no-one has ever denied it. But in the own end there are some problems.

Nashville still holds his brother's rights. Any chance they would come over together?

Could be. I personally don't see much potential in Jani Lajunen but maybe he'll prove me wrong and have an impact next season. Jani has a contract until 2011 and I think Ville just signed with Blues until 2012?

I think the depth of quality defenseman would scare him off.I mean Nashville is stacked on D.

Ville Lajunen has to improve skating, desicion making and he needs to be more mean. Hes kinda soft at the own end but his offensive talent has always been good.
