Good call on Trouba Frozenice and a pick I am a big fan of as a Jets fan. I wanted him before draft day and feel better about the pick now. He is flying under the radar a bit this year and perhaps it's because he is playing US collage but who knows? The book on him was a hard hitting shut down type defensman but when I watched him last year for the USA in the WJC I thought he had a very nice offensive side to his game. This year as a freshman for the Wolverines he plays on the top PP unit and in 12 games he has 4 goals and 6 assists for 10 points and is 4th in team scoring. He is an excellant skater, has a great stretch pass, and a top notch one timer from the point. On top of that he is a beast physically with a nasty edge and is definaltely the meanest hardest hitting D man from upper echelon of this past draft class (with all do respect to Dumba). Here is a hit from a few games ago that got him a game misconduct. I didn't think it was that bad when you watch it on slow motion but I am probably being a homer?
