Let's talk about his positives and negatives.

Pros:
Does not shy from contact
Can keep the puck deep if needed
Has decent finishing skills (for a small frame to be stationary in front of the net is a testament to his resolve)
Fast Skater
Plays Defense

Cons:
Contract
Not a playmaker or passer
Small Frame, means he gets knocked off the puck easily when he has speed.

Hmmm, sounds like a keeper, and actually would be good to keep on the 3rd line to be used on the pp with with some limited time on the top two in case of injury.
You take of other people's expectations of Prucha, but you never say what you expect.

And weighing the positives and negatives are fine but you have weigh each factor, not just list them. You say he's not afraid of contact but he's easily knocked off the puck. Is that really a positive? Saying he's not a playmaker or passed is not a small thing. Neither is his contract.
