You thought correct. Fischer and gritty don't belong in the same sentence. Although he has improved his physical game, it's gone from none to some. He's actually good along the boards but in the crease is where he struggles. I hope that when he fills out his frame, he adds a good deal of strength, as imo as somone that used to work in a gym, getting a lot stronger gives you confidence (or so it did for me) so the hope would be that if he gets bigger and stronger, it will help him in the crease, move forwards and be less fun to play against, although I really don't think the physical brand of hockey will ever be a big part of Fischer's game. Imo for Fischer his best asset is his puck moving and smart defensive zone play.
