The Anti-Pruchas argue that Prucha was a fluke (59 times) and that his decreased playing time has nothing to do with it. Unfortunately, as long as Prucha keeps getting shafted on meaningful minutes, there is no way to either prove or disprove THAT theory, either.

This is why the Prucha argument continues ad nauseum. Both sides have a viewpoint based on what kind of player Prucha would be if he got the kind of minutes he had in his first year. Since Renney clearly has no inclination to give Prucha that kind of ice-time, neither side has any proof for their argument. The pros look like they're continually making excuses and the antis look like they're picking on Prucha as the most convenient target whenever a game goes poorly (the team lost? Time to cut the guy who played the 2nd fewest minutes in that game!)
Why did you have to go and ruin the argument by using logic... cheater.
