    As a hawk fan who is still reeling from not getting a top 2 pick....

    I just want to know from anyone who has actually seen this kid play day in, day out-

    What type of player is he?

    I think Michalek(sp?) in San Jose looked pretty damn good... How does Olesz compare to him?

    Is he a set up center(*shiver*) or is he a guy that can bury the puck?

    Is he an NHL center, or will he be moved to the wing?

    Is he so much better than a guy like Shremp, or A Radulov, or Ladd.... that it would be worth our while to stay at #3, or do we play the Cam Barker card to Columbus and a few others that will desperately want a big time dman? Trade down and add another asset?

    Thanks for the help. Afterall, our logo in chicago should be this guy____ :help:

    I've seen him 3 times only... but I'd take him #3.

    He's extremely skilled and is a strong player. Big kid too.

    I like him better as a winger and if puts all the pieces together he could be a very dangerous forward with a great combination of size {and the willingness to use it} as well as skill.

    I think he has a higher offensive ceiling than Michalek, i am a big fan of both however. I think he will be converted to wing and possibly score 30 goals a season. Hes big mean and has a great scoring touch, should be a great linemate for Ruutu down the road(if the hawks draft him).
