wow, that was a useless comment if i ever read one, not that you can actually see if he's 6'3 or 6'4 unless you have a tape glued to your eyeballs, but anyways who cares? If there's something worth talking about it's his weight, cause a 210 or 220 pound defensmen can hold alot more on his own then a 185 pound D, but i'm not worries that Fisher will grow into his frame.

Oh and i loved the part about his big upside, at where we grabbed him he looks to be the steal of the draft!

Hey guys.

Some blogger posted nice things about Fischer.

http://slog.cstv.com/rinkrat/2006/08...rt_1.html#more

Quote:
The U.S. gave the Swedes a one-timer of their own, and the visitors took advantage of the gift, as Jonas Junland connected on a one-timer at 9:28 to make it 3-2 Sweden. Still, the U.S. effort was much stronger in the second, and the game was even again at 11:49, as Fischer connected on a wrist shot from the right face-off circle. Denver freshman Rhett Rakhshani and Michigan State freshman Michael Ratchuk pick up the assists. Team USA is definitely getting some nice production from the blueline in this game, and that wrister by Fischer was a thing of beauty. Erik Johnson - who's not at the camp, unfortunately - is obviously the gem of Minnesota's recruiting class, but make no mistake: Gopher fans are going to be very happy with Fischer.
The more a read about this guy, the more I think he's the real deal, and would have been drafted much higher had he played in a better league last year. College is really going to shape this kid good.

He's a bit raw but nowhere near the level that Komisarek was at the same age. I also feel that Fischer has a much higher upside than nearly any defensive prospect taken in the entire draft outside of Erik Johnson.

The kid just oozes potential.

I'll admit I was confused when he was selected.

It sure looks like a good pick now...

I'll follow Fischer closely, because if he turns out half as good as you guys think, I'm going to have to work hard on next draft's preparation.

Where will I get good info?

From Fischer own comments, he didn't enjoyed some of his interviews during the combine. I think the poster who originally brought the "idiot" information got it from the comments of some teams who may have been put off by Fischer frank and relaxed attitude.

Completely agree with you

He was definately underchanged by playing USHS last year, but it fed him so many minutes its not even funny...
This kid is one of my favourite prospects... He IMO is going to be a stellar defenceman for us in the years to come...

Make no mistake about it... Montreal is building something REALLY special

Also, I think you guys are underrating USHS hockey by quite a fair margain. The top kids are able to shine and play for HUGE amounts of minutes. It's really a great system to go into if you're an American kid. And most of the top teams are awesome prep school teams with really great reputations.

I liked his size combined with his skating (wide, upright stride, strong on his skates for his weight too, and fast) and quick hands (for his level of development) at the dev camp. He has to put on at least 25-30 pounds of muscle though, so he'll take a couple years. Solid pick.

I'm really high on Fischer. I see him turning out as a #2/#3 defenseman. He is the Marc Staal of this draft,
