    I see differing opinions on these two from the scouting services and from those of you on the boards. Who do you think will have more impact on the NHL? And do you think Frolik will be picked before Tlusty?

    Frolik - Jagr comparisons are a joke. Nothing short of a joke. These players are not on the same planet, skill wise.

    I'm thinking Tlusty will go first. His stock has been on the rise while Frolik has dropped down. Not a whole lot, mind you, but it has dropped.

    Agreed and I like Frolik alot. IMO if Frolik hits his high end, he'll be an Elias type. Thats still a very high end, two-way, transitional forward.

    Clearly Tlusty based on U18 and Czech league play. I'd be surprised if any scouts had Frolik ahead now and I can see him slipping outside of the top 15, whereas Tlusty looks like a likely top 10 pick.

    Many HF posters hang on to Oct. or Jan,. ratings much too long and a kind of mental rigor mortis with a player's draft position sets in. It's April now.

    I don't know if that's sarcasm or not but there is a Jagr comparison every draft year. Realistically, there is slim to no chance that any player will be that good...

    I find that HF posters hang on to underage performances at the WJHC too long. Really, what has Frolik done since the 2004 WJHC to show he's worthy of a top 10 pick?

    In every draft there is a Czech like Jagr and a Swede like Forsberg.

    What kind of player does Tlusty project as? Offensive talent, two way, does he mix it up a bit or is he afraid of his own shadow?

    Martin Havlat. A lot like him from what I've seen/heard/researched.

    Tlustly is anything but Havlat from what I've read/heard. Of course, none of us have seen Tlusty play - but he's kinda on the small side under 6 feet, and is more of a defensive minded player than a dynamo like Havlat.

    Havlat was drafted as a two-way winger with strong defensive play. He still is an excellent defensive player, but that really isn't talked about because his linemates usually do that work and he focuses manly on offense.

    I've seen him and he is offensive-minded without question. Havlat is a good style comparison.

    I don't see his overall offensive upside being as high as Havlat.....but he makes up for that in physical play.

    Less skilled, more physical version of Havlat is Tlusty

    If Frolik starts to drop, I could see the Rangers trying to move to get him, just to see if being around the Czech contingent serves as motivation to get his act together and harness his talent.
