That's what it comes down to IMO.
I'm probably being too harsh on Voros, but he's annoyed me too many times by being on a scoring line despite not being able to do anything offensively except stand in front of the net. I don't even think he's good along the boards.
So, I don't know. You say Prucha doesn't bring much to the lineup, but if there's one thing, I'd say it's that he forechecks better than anyone in the lineup not named Ryan Callahan. He's created a lot of chances and goals by being relentless. It's sad that he's so much smaller than Voros, but so much more useful at that kind of stuff.
but, whatever, I'm not that upset about it or anything. Just wish Prucha got as much leeway as other guys on the roster seem to
