Yes it was me, and yes he does. He seems to have a thin frame, not very muscluar. He's not strong either, will have trouble in the NHL along the boards if he's called up. I'd like to see it overe Dagenais who would be another slow forward that can't skate well like Perreault and Ribeiro, just bigger. Balej is so fast and such a good skater, but his shot is wicked.

I was sitting in the first row for 3 games, and to me Balej looked very skinny. Plekanec who's shorter looks a lot more thicker to me. Plekanec should be the first callup IMO though. He's been great, and Balej is feeding off that (until the other day when Jarvis split them up) But I would call up one of them, they will create more then Audette, both skate well and have speed to burn.
