fritsche can be that guy......give him some time on the scoring lines and he could turn into a good second line player....he has a great shot and great speed....all he needs is some time to gel with his linemates and to play with some guys with skill.....in columbus he wasnt allowed to do that too much except for when he played with nash and he was playing really well and putting up a good amount of points......i would rather add size and grit in the top 6 with fritsche than hope prucha doesnt get his head taken off every game while he skates with his head down

I'm just wondering why you would rather give this guy the shot who has a career hi of 12 goals instead of our own homegrown guy that had a 30 goal rookie season and 22 the next year. Also Marcus Naslund had declining stats but we can give him a change right? Even with the tune of a NMC, yet we can't give the much younger Prucha the same chance? I admit, the more I read about Fritsche the more I like about him........but he was pretty much a throw in and that makes me wonder. Columbus wasn't a very deep team like the Rangers last year and he put up 22 pts in 69 games and he sounds wonderfull. Prucha put up 17 points in 62 games while being given limited time and he's being tossed out for a mid round pick and is considered as traid bait on these boards?

Is it just me of is that crazy logic? I give the more proven player like Prucha the chance and Fritsche goes ont he 3rd line. Prucha has balls and plays hard and when he's on his shot is really good. I don't care if he takes a big hit..........thats what we have guys like Colton Orr for no? Petr gets laid out Orr should be bashing his damn head in the glass. And he always gets back up........Prucha really won my respect and has become one of my favorite players. He didn't ***** and cry last year either like Malik which says he's a good team guy.

because i am looking at the types of players they are.......dawes and drury are 5'10 or below.......prucha is about 5'10.......too small of a line.....plus drury and prucha just doesnt work....they are both shooters.....fritsche is a hard-working big body with a good shot.....i say lets see what he can do with those two and he adds size and grit to that line.....plus drury will most likely be going against the other teams best lines at home, so a bigger player who is better at defense then prucha might be a better idea with dawes already on that line

Voted for Orr. Voros reminds me of Hollweg just with some offensive upside, but might take some boarding calls and lose some scraps.

But in the end, I don't mind a rotation with Orr and Voros depending on what team that are playing "us".
I wouldn't mind a Voros-Betts-Orr line either tbh, against the toughest teams in the league.

Voros hands down. I'd definitely take the guy who has some offensive upside and can fight a little bit over a guy who can just do the latter. Korpikoski has a large cap hit so he would have to really impress to make the team.

He sure as **** impressed me in the final game of the playoffs VS. the pens... to throw a rookie against one of, if not the most skilled team in the league in a elimination game, and for him to perform as he did shows alot in my opinion.

But with his large cap hit I'd rather send him down because he can be sent down without having to go through waivers. Also I think he could play on the 4th line but I don't know if it would be good for his development.

Definitely Voros....need a banger and a fighter in the lineup at all times. Voros is good for everyday games and when there is a heavyweight, Orr can go in.

Voros isn't much of a fighter. Every team has at least one legit fighter/hard checker. What's Voros going to do against guys like Laraque? Hell, what's Voros going to do against even Hollweg when we play the Leafs? Because I seriously doubt Voros could even beat Hollweg in a fight.

I think this is going to be the year that we see Paul Mara dropping the gloves to protect the kids, but I don't want to rely on Mara. We have one of the top 5 if not top 3 fighters in the league on our squad. It's not a waste to have him in the lineup, teams definitely play differently when a guy like Orr is in the lineup.

You want a lineup that has this kind of size? With guys like Prucha and Dawes in it? You're gonna need a player who can legitimately protect them, and that guy is Orr, not Voros.
