You guys REALLY underrate Fritsche. He's about as versatile as Mike Richards and is a similar kind of player (from the same draft class). He may never be as good as Richards, but there is legitimate (and fairly obvious) top-six potential.

Every player has some limitation... in this case, Fritsche will have to battle through injuries, but to preclude him from ever being more than a 3rd liner at 23 is a joke.
i really like the idea of a callahan-dubinsky-fritsche line....young, fast, girtty.....and in todays nhl the third line needs to produce and i think this line can do that
