Has Prucha become a fan favorite yet? If not...he soon will.
This Coyotes fan has been impressed big-time by Korpedo. Rock-solid two-way forward, flies around the ice and always pressuring the puck, and effective on the PK. Also like his willingness to go to the net, and he's got a very nice quick-wrister. Penciled in on 4th line and will see some PK and PP action. Scored a goal on the PP, his only point of the pre.

Prucha was a hit at the end of last year and he established himself quickly in the pre-season on the all-Czech line with Marty Hanzal and Radim Vrbata. He was 1g-2a-3pts in pre; Hanzal was 1-3-4; Vrbata 1-1-2. They've been playing together since early pre-season and don't think Tippett will break them up. Looking like the 3rd line.

Korpedo-Lisin looking like a good deal for both teams.
