This Slovakian defenseman has been getting some good last-minute press from scouts. I must admit that when I saw him I liked him- very intense, excellent work ethic, fine balanced skater, sense of poise and control in all 3 zones, makes mistakes only out of over-eagerness. But since nobody seemed to making any noise about him I assumed there must be something wrong with him that I wasn't aware of. Yeah- he's not big but neither is Sweden's Fransson. Foolishly, I left him off of my top 60 list because there was no confirming buzz about him (I did the same with Grigorenko in his draft year). Perhaps I was seeing only his best games, I thought. I guess everybody was trying to keep him as one of their little secrets. That secret seems to be out now. Any other thoughts or comments on him? He could be a riser come draft day.
