Neither he nor Spaling is afraid to go into the high traffic zone in front of the net.
As far as Dietrich, man, what did the scouts see in this guy? I sure missed it. It is obvious Franson still is a project. They guy's shots were off, he made some turnovers on the PP that were Zidlicky-esqe, to coin a phrase. Pickard just seemed to exude a composure in net. Very smooth, very calm. I could see his potential for sure. Better not to rush this guy, he could be special if properly groomed.
Mike is #53 and is the more natural sniper of the two.

As for Dietrich, he was injured A LOT last season and he could be experiencing the Finley Effect (injuries -> unrealized potential). Either that, or he was just a flash in the pan in 06/07, which were the exact words I used when I described the pick...
