I'm not sure we're talking about the right player here guys. Nick Schmaltz is 5'10", 180 pounds, and is a slippery, skilled playmaker. If he makes the NHL, he hardly projects as a 4th line checking center a la Boyle. I'll just leave it at I'm confused here, re: Schmaltz.

I have nothing against Fleury. I'm a huge proponent of BPA, but our prospect pool needs skill players in the worst way. Fleury is also left handed. My tune would change a lot if he was a righty. If we're picking 10-12 and he's the BPA, so be it, but I personally don't think he is. He's a very safe bet to make the NHL, but nothing about him suggests he'll be a top pairing guy.

I'm really interested in Tuch now. Is he overpowering in the sense that he just uses his body to win battles because he's bigger than his competition? Or is he a mean SOB that hits to punish and impose his will? Could be our Lucic if he has even a lick of skill.
