You probably know more than me since I've never seen the kid play, but the feeling I get is that Prucha definately has NHL talent (if not equal to, at least in the vicinity of that of Balej's). However, the knock on him always has been and always will be his size. You have to take that into consideration when comparing him to Balej, which is what puts Josef over the top. Until Prucha proves that his size wont be a liability in the NHL, he'll always be a question mark. But I'll say one thing. If Prucha can use his quickness and lack of size as an advantage to avoid hits similar to the way Martin St. Louis has, he could be one hell of a player, and a fan favorite as well.
