Roman Psurny
 
NYR.com had an article about him today, i havn't heard much about him but but he seemed to have had a pretty good rookie season in the WHL, he was 3rd among rookies with 21 goals, 28 assists for 49 points in 69 games, he was also a +29. He suppose to be a fairly good and quick skater with good vision on the ice. At 6"1 hes not small either. Anybody else know anything about him?

I know that he has alot of grit to his game. I never seen him play but by his stats, not bad for a first year pro. Same goes for Jakub Petruzalek in the OHL. I hope their stats for next season improve and not decline.

I know nothing about him...
 
but he was fourth in scoring on Medicine Hat, and his numbers are pretty good for a kid coming over from the Czech Republic. Interestingly enough there's a kid on the team, who just turned 18 a couple weeks ago, who's on defense and scored a heck of a lot of points (more than Cam Barker). Problem is, he's 5'9 148! Next season will tell us a lot about the kid.

One of the scouting services (maybe YoungGuns?) gave Roman their "Soft as Butter" award in his draft year, so I'm glad to hear that he can thrive in the WHL. In fact, he scored more goals this year than he did in Czech Juniors.

He has a twin brother Michal, who put up almost identical stats when he played with Roman last year.

Cool, maybe we'll get lucky...

It was meant to be sarcastic. Anyway, it was in a 2004 draft guide, so it's based on his Czech junior and WJC play.

Another prospect that has turned in good year. Gee just imagine what our organization would be really like if Sather and his crew had a clue?

in their analysis of players? I know someone who swears by them as gospel. I bet it wasn't THN, they are always right according this guy.

"The Kid" would be Kris Russell. Great hands, great hockey sense. No size. Great defenseman too. All hustle.

Anyways, Psurny is my favorite Tigers player, by far. He has great hustle and isn't afraid to get dirty when he plays.
He spent most of the season on a line with Maxwell (the enforcer) and Robertson. They faired quite well, Roman and Brett doing most of the finishing and using Tommy to open space.
During the second part of the year they were using Roman on the first powerplay unit (he was on the second for the first part of the year) as well as the second Penatly kill unit. He was also being paired on a line with Clarke MacArthur and sometimes Stefan Meyer.
Roman is a tough little bugger out there. He got into three fights, but he doesn't give up down low. THere was a few games that he was bleeding and had a target on his back, but he just kept going.

Great pick up, great player.

:handclap:

Trying not to get too excited, Atlanta...
 
he was a 18-19 year old scoring less than a point-per-game in the WHL. 17 year olds in the same league are scoring a point-per-game and more. Good season for him, as he was a 'rookie', but he is in a league with 16-20 year olds, mostly, and very often the 16 and 17 year olds are the 'rookies'.

i tend to give foreign players entering the CHL some leeway in their first year, since they do have to adjust to the different style of play. that's just me though, and obviously if he was supremely talented he still would have put up a lot of points. but i don't think anyone's trying to say he's a stud bluechip prospect either ;)

of course the test will be next year to see how much he improves

I believe that was ISS not Young guns. You can actually see it in the sample on the ISS website.

ISS hardly saw him play, I think...
He had to switched over Roman with his brother Michal who is really soft.
Roman plays with grit and determination and is far from being soft player.
