I believe Halifax actually drafted Fucale with a pick they got from Lewiston in the dispersal draft when they folded.
Would've been much easier to take an older player to make an immediate impact, especially since the team had been so awful for so long, but I remember reading just after the draft they wanted Lewiston's 1st round pick specifically to draft Fucale.
Cam Russell is starting to look like a genius.

Fleury had to be scrambly in nets... The Cape Breton Screaming Eagles were awful and gave up 40 shots a game (no joke) when Fleury was 16. That team was a group of scrappers... including Fleury lol
Haha, you're not kidding. First time I saw Fleury play he made 40 something saves to shutout the Mooseheads. Actually felt bad for him because even with a 4-0 lead late in the third, Cape Breton still kept giving up odd-man rushes.
Thing about Fleury however, is that he gets tired, like a normal human being. Fucale doesn't seem to have that problem.
