When Fleury was Hollweg's age, he was already a point-a-game player in the NHL. Hollweg had a good year, but he's an overage junior, which is basically a man playing with boys. Stats are nice at that age, but they mean little in projecting future scoring ablitlity. Look at Layne Ulmer's final year in juniors.
Hollweg's a great character and could help the Rangers down the road IF his body holds up from the pounding he gives it. But I see his upside as a 4th line energy player. Not the kind of guy you list as your #11 prospect. I didn't plan on listing him unitl after round #15, although I could change my mind.
