if i'm correct...he didn't play a big scoring role last season (being in more of a "kid line" checking role almost...i could be wrong about that though, someone correct me if i am, that's just the impression i've gotten) so a step up to a top line and getting good minutes with good linemates could mean this is his big breakout year...and then the rangers will sign him next year and hopefully we'll be getting something good
He was on a kid line initially. In fact, that trio was very popular with the fans who would chant whenever the rookies were on the ice together.

But there was an injury or two to break up the kid line and Prucha slid next to Dopi in the latter part of the regular season. Instant chemistry!
