I've watched him at the MC for the last 2 years and I agree completely. It's easy to let the NHL level shot or a pretty rush fool you but there are serious holes in his game in addition to his skating.

He makes a lot of poor decisions with the puck. He looks great going north-south but he turns the puck over too often and doesn't use his linemates enough.

I mentioned his shot earlier and it's good but he hits the goalie in the chest or the glass with it far too often.

He's also prone to the dumb retaliatory penalty when the opposition gets under his skin.

I was high on him at the beginning of the year but I'd be really cautious about using a 1st rounder on him. It's really too bad about the concussion as I feel a full season might have addressed some of these issues.

Doesn't use his teammates enough? He uses his teammates TOO much... He tries to make these cute plays with Nate a lot which is a downside to his game. He also passes the puck too much on the PP, but that epidemic has been with the Moose since '94

I haven't seen too many of those "after the whistle" "stupid" penalties that he was known for in CZE which brought his total up... I feel he's more disciplined than before...

Maybe, similar size, close in PPG.. Frk had injuries tho.

I'd be surprised if he fell to the 40's, would be steal if so.

No, I'm not a fan of NJ's drafting methods anyway.

If the habs pass on him with their second I'll be pretty pissed unless Teravainen or Hertl just fell into our laps.

Jason has been against Frk dating back to last season before this season started. I'd guarantee he would be pissed if NJ took him.

Frk raising his draft ranking IMO

I think Frk is having a great playoffs for Halifax thus possibly having him raise his rankings with a lot of scouts again...with a forward starved draft he could find himself in most 1st rounds again I imagin after these playoffs.

Yes he has risen. But I'm still discouraged by how much he dropped in the rankings, from the start of the year. Once touted to go top 10.

Suffering a concussion and then struggling a bit once you get back can do that to a player

No way he gets draft by Detroit if it's in the 2nd round
