It seems to me that you are the one who hasn't watched him play, but rather simply looked at NHL.com stats.
They are not similar players and have a different approach.
Anyway, since you wouldn't take Prucha and claim that he's a defensive responsible player in the mold of Hartnell (without the size of course), which player would you rather have instead? Fiddler? Tootoo?
the only way i related him to Hartnell is that he gets garbage goals around the net... period. Everything else you assumed. And, yes, ive watched the guy play a lot. Point being, i used FACTS to back up my statements instead of using them as an opinion.
And what i was saying is, i would NOT take Prucha if means we get rid of Zids or Suter for him (which is basically what Eck was saying as them getting one of our offensive d-men). Not even if Zids and Suter were hurt would i take a healthy Prucha.
