Why'd they go with Faksa?

What I love about this guy's last three years is that he's been a scorer everywhere, he's been a grinder everywhere, and he even popped up on an HFBoards discussions post of 2012 prospects in 2009 (from a Czech commenter) alongside Tomas Hertl and Martin Frk. So you know he's been on the radar for awhile and hasn't really gone away. That's about as close to consistent testimony for a prospect as you're going to get.

On the clock: our Tampa Bay Lightning bloggers at Raw Charge.
