What are your thoughts on Puempel and Faksa? Do you see them becoming impact players in the NHL?
Faksa always impressed me with his ability to protect the puck much like Sundin used to - I do see him being an NHL'er in a top 6 role. He is currently injured. His stats also do not give justice to the offensive scoring chances he is creating

Puempel came out this season on fire offensively but has not been the same player since his injury. He has been slowly turning it up the past two weeks and getting more ice time but he is not the same player. He seems to be a pure scorer and when he isn't doing that he is really not contributing much. I see him as a tweener - not good enough to be a top 6 NHL'er and not gritty enough to be better than most bottom 6ers
