It just seems like one person probably really pushed for it, said it could be the steal of the draft and it ends up blowing up in our faces. I mean really, a Minnesota High School league? How can you honestly tell if they are a Top 30 17/18 year old in the entire world?
High School hockey is a where all the top players usually play in New England and Minnesota. Not as much with the NTDP the last few years but it's high calibre hockey, Crosby Parise and MacKinnon all played there. Plus top HS players would have played in big national tournaments and national team(U17 and U18) showcases like we have here.
The problem with Fischer was more with his development than anything, he had size, mobility, good hockey sense but he never filled out, improved his shot or strength for 1 on 1 battles.
