1) He's not a fighter. Sure, he can drop the mitts and throw 'em, but he's not a fighter. In fact, Soumakis looks like he could be a very useful NHL player on a number of levels. He's an excellent skater with a thick, compact build, fearlessly hits everything on the ice (including much bigger players), and possesses soft hands and legitimate offensive skill. Trust me, he'd be a fan favorite here the second he steps on the ice. Soumakis is one of those agitator types who has a well-rounded game and will piss you off even more because he can score (think Brad Marchand).
2) If Hyka continues at his current pace, I don't think it's a stretch to say he could be a second round pick. His skill level is dynamic. The Flyers ****ed up big time by not nabbing him at the end of the seventh round.
