i don't know why people insist on comparing balej to dvorak...they really do not play a similar game at all. the only thing they have in common is their speed. dvorak was always more of a straight forward speedster who created his chances by blowing right past guys. balej has speed but he's much shiftier and uses his lateral movement a lot more. he's also a lot shiftier with the puck than dvorak. honestly, just cuz they come from roughly the same place in europe and are fast doesn't mean they're the same type of player
as for his play...well i can't say for sure since i only listened on the radio, but to put him down for ONE freakin game, the first game of the year, and be terribly dissapointed in him...cmon. he's gonna be a good player IMO, not a superstar, but a good second liner. he'll play well this year, just wait.
