I actually always found a lot of sympathy fro Olesz. Not sure why, but I was always really hoping he would pan out somehow somewhere because I liked his personality. He was a great prospect who was maybe ruined by Phaneuf at the WJC (or maybe not though. We never know what really went through his mind).

IMO Olesz never really loafed. He just couldn't score and his skating style seemed a little flegmatic, but then again not everyone has to have the high caliber explosiveness. He was just always injured and just couldn't score here. Maybe it was lack of hockey IQ or maybe it was a huge freaking gorilla on his back. I have no bad feelings towards Olesz for his time here and of course he got us Soupy here. Still keep hoping he finds his game somewhere.

Off-topic, but then again we don't excactly have any Rusty threads anymore so...
