Right up our alley.

Here's a good writeup:

The Vladinator He earned the NHL Plus/Minus Award in 1995-96, with a plus/minus difference of plus-60. The +60 has been the highest rating a player has finished with in the past 20 seasons, since Wayne Gretzky finished with a +70 in the 1986-87 NHL season

Is it just me or does he look like he skates bent over all the time? Really weird skating style.

That's the first thing I noticed, Soup Snake.

And damn, what is with all the concussed draftees the past few years? Something has got to be done about this.

Skating is his most glaring weakness according to scouts.

Yeah I saw that but I didn't imagine that it would mean he loses half of his height while skating haha.

The mooseheads are my local team and Martin Frk is a great pick for 49. He has had injury problems but he is a point producer. I hope he gets ot stay in the Q for anothe ryear or so so I can still watch him play but he will be another great late pick for the wings mark my words.

Now if only we can find a way to get Zach Fucale or Nathan Mackinnon in next years draft from the mooseheads I'll be laughing.

Great shot, but poor skater and bad defensively? Sounds like a young Brett Hull ;)
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

I noticed his skating didn't look too great in those highlight videos.

Does anyone know how to pronounce his name? Is it Frik or Ferk?

91...It'd be weird seeing another wing wear 91.

Very nice pick. A top10 player before his concussion. Very Jurco/Tvrdon like pick. Loads of skill.

More like Ferk, but roll the r.

Good pick, for 49th. Hopefully he can stay healthy.

it's Czech name, so more like "F(y)rk" with very short "y".


looks like decent pick to me to add depth scoring to the system.

Very weird if he ever ends up in the Winged Wheel wearing 91 indeed. I still have my Fedorov in jersey in my closet begging to be worn all the time :D

Looking at the way he skates I'm not surprised at all that he had a concussion. At the start of the video watching him skate with his head down I immediately thought this guy will get killed in a NHL game. Dude is going to be asking for it if he continues to skate with his head down and hunched over like that.

i knew i saw someone ask for him in the draft discussion somewhere. good call dude. he has some nice puck skills. can play the point on the power play too and has a pretty good clapper. i like this pick. and he's even right handed! and all of the picks other than the goalie are exactly 6 feet tall and can still grow so we can't even complain that they're little punks that Kenny's drafting.
