This is a borderline NHL player, not unlike Andrew Alberts. Was the Alberts deal a nice deal for us? Meh.
Agreed. Fistric looked like he was on track to be a solid player after his 2009-10 season at age 23. But in the two seasons since, he's regressed and been very disappointing for that team. Basically a fringe 6-7 guy in the Alberts mold, although I think he's a bit better than Alberts.
