He's absolutely terrible. But then again, he was a "project" at the time of the draft.

Either way you look at it, the 4th round was way too early for a goaltender of his calibre.

Can anyone explain to me what the hell happened to this kid?

he was an off the board pick when we got him to begin with. It was a massive brain fart on management's part.

He wasn't all that off the board.

CSB had him ranked 29th. I think THN draft preview had him in the 28-30 range.

Either way, absolutely horrible pick by Timmins and company.

Interestingly if you read Gare Joyce's "Future Greats & Heartbreaks" (when he was allowed almost unlimited access to the Blue Jackets' draft table and meetings), they had Fischer on their "do not draft" list. Columbus aren't exactly known for their superb drafting (until recently at least) but it looks like they got that one bang on...

Anyway I'm surprised they're not even inviting him to camp?? That must be a really bad sign. As for Torp, I always liked him and thought he had potential. Missiaen was a pick I didn't understand from day one.

I guess the injuries may have set Torp back too much to get him to the stage he needed to be at with the new transfer agreement taking his rights retention away. I too liked him back at draft time.

Missaien I'm guessing goes back to Bob Gainey voting for the bigger nets.

Fischer had a lot of bad press at draft time, and like we always speculate, it would have been awfully nice if they could at least have traded back to get the guy that it seemed like nobody wanted, particularly when there was so much jockeying for spots going on at the time. Definitely some interesting stuff going on with that pick, sad for us that it looks like we'll be the losers. I would have at least offered him the absolute minimum ELC contract $500/$65k or whatever in the off chance he declined. If he accepted, well, what harm can it do? We paid Michael Busto this year. And have paid some others over the years who have to have even less upside than Fischer. It couldn't hurt to make the offer.

Let's be serious. They also had Ben Maxwell in the top 20.

Not like what they had is pure gold.

actually Maxwell was a 2nd rounder at 45-50th i cant remember the exact number but your thinking of 1st round choice 17th-19th overall Kyle Chipchura which was one big bust out of recent years

it was just a plain stupid pick. He had known attitude problems and wasn't even much of a producer. I believe he was projected to go in the mid-2nd round when we took him.

Missaein was always a terrible pick - no idea why they picked him. Saw him play about 10 games in his draft year. Wonder if they saw any of his games.

Surprised about Torp, but Missiaen, I guess. I think the Molsons want to start from scratch. I mean, ditch all the scouts and all their mistakes at once.

The habs did trade back w/ San Jose.

The Montreal Canadiens trade the 16th pick (Ty Wishart) to the San Jose Sharks for the 20th pick (David Fischer) and the 53rd pick (Mathieu Carle).

Expect the expected? Our farm gets ****tier and ****tier by the day.

Geez I can't wait to see which cubic zirconium timmons can pluck from the diamond pile this year. Oooh maybe a new player for our 4th line, not just anyone can play those minutes you know.

Maybe - maybe not.

Maybe Columbus has not completed all their candidate interviews and will make a later decision as to their new coaching chioce.


Stay tuned!

Do we get a compensation pick back on Fischer if he doesn't sign?

Is Fischer even allowed to attend? I thought NCAA players were limited in terms of professional team camps.
