I Wouldn't Say Flash Is Soft, But...

With no points, one hit, no blocked shots, no takeaways and only five shots on goal in 48:31 of total ice time so far this season (despite skating most of that time on a line with the team's leading scorer), Tomas Fleischmann has been virtually invisible through five games.

On the plus side for Flash, his play may open up new off-ice opportunities (which he might need sooner rather than later) - I can't think of an NHL player better-suited to be the spokesman for a specific product than the Caps winger.

Now it's your turn - what other NHL players are perfect pitchmen for every day commercial items?

I always felt there was a commercial in store for linesman Pierre Champoux when he retires.

And linesman Mike Cvik could shill for Honda, if he could fit in one.

Better question: Where are the Caps going to find a RW. Not Hershey. So... Marty Lapointe? JP Dumont?

Steve Heinze wore #57 when he played for Columbus in 2000-01, hoping to land an endorsement with the ketchup company.
