Can anyone give us more of a report on Flick? Sounds like a ceiling of a 4th line center hits things, isn't that greatly skilled but has good hockey IQ (basically going off of various sites after I had to google the kid).
That pretty much sums it up.

At Flick's best, he'd be a big, hard-hitting bottom 6 center that can drop the gloves and elevate his game in crunch time. He got a lot of praise for his role in Mississauga's Memorial Cup run a few years ago, I think maybe even getting an MVP award for it? I can't look that up right now.

He hasn't seemed like much of anything since he reached the pros, but maybe the Bruins can turn that around. For the styles I associate with these teams -- fast Hawks vs. hard Bruins -- this trade makes sense.
