RotoWire's Preseason Outlooks
Fiala, the No. 11 overall pick in the 2014 NHL Entry Draft, certainly turns heads with his offensive skills -- he’s smart, quick and can dangle with the best. And he plays with an ultra-competitive edge that gives opponents fits. But that competitiveness sometimes morphs into stupidity, plunking his skinny butt (5-foot-10, 180 lbs.) squarely in the sin bin. He needs to improve his defensive game and learn to control his emotions. But if he can, he could be the next Brad Marchand or Brendan Gallagher, though likely not for a few years. Fiala has impressed during his first training camp in Nashville, but the team will probably want him to hone his development overseas before turning him loose with the parent club.
