People forget that Fischer was a late first round pick. He was a guy who at his top-end was going to be a staunch top pairing defensive dman. He was a half-season away from reaching that potential. He was never going to be an offensive dman.

Minimize what Jiri Fischer accomplished as a player as much as you want, I suppose. It was certainly an in-vogue thing for you to do while he was playing, so I can't see why you'd feel it was any less comfortable now that he's not.

On every board I've ever posted on, I've been a Jiri Fischer booster.
Yeah, I've criticized him. But I was a fan.

As for Fischer being a "half-season" away from reaching his potential .... there's really nothing I can say to counter such nonsense.
