Prediction: Fischer vaults to the top 3 (I would say #1, were it not for the promise of Price and Latendresse) of the list within a year. He seems like a tremendous steal as a 20th selection. Comparable to Ottawa getting Mezsaros roughly that late, but in a larger physical package (his weight shouldn't be a problem: Lidstrom, Niedermayer, Chelios and a few other Norris types are lanky too...).
Edit: I get a kick out of Gainey being such a contrarian: getting Price last year at #5, against consensus opinion, and actually trading down in the first round this year and still getting his player, whom many stayed away from because of so-called attitude issues that were probably unfounded.
