He actually hasn't responded as well as he could have to the added ice time he's getting because of the injuries, but Fistric should be back soon to take a load off the other guys. The thing I like about his shot is he tends to be very clever with it; knows when to blast it and knows when to shoot for tips and rebounds, knows when to use the wristshot, and has a great knack for getting it through on goal. His confidence with the puck has improved vastly as well, and he shows flashes of some pretty impressive puck skills from time to time. When he fills his frame out and if he learns to be a little more aggressive, and continues to improve his footspeed and gains some leg strength to use that long stride to his benefit, I think he has a pretty good chance to play. Probably several years away, but that isn't exactly a problem for this team.
