To be honest, I don't think Tropp will ever make the NHL. He has some skills, but he isn't talented enough offensively to make it as a top six forward and doesn't have the size/physicality/all-around game to carve out a niche as a bottom six forward.

Fienhage, though I haven't seen him much, doesn't appear to have any glaring weaknesses. He will never be confused with Brian Campbell in terms of skating or offensive ability, but I think those areas of his game are good enough to make it as a bottom-pairing defenseman down the road. I haven't seen enough of him to know how nasty he is on a consistent basis, but he does love to go for the hit.

Hopefully someone who has seen a little more of these guys can give.a better/more detailed assessment.
