Prucha's still playing below where it makes sense for him to be a top 6 forward. He's still not averaging many minutes, but maybe there's a reason why that's happened in two places now. I liked him a lot, but acknowledge that the situation has to be right for him in order for him to succeed. I don't think that situation was in New York under Renney (nothing against Renney, but I think he was looking for Petr to play a certain way, or be a certain type of player that fits his system, and that wasn't Petr's comfort zone; further, with more bodies, i.e., Shanny, etc., taking up valuable PP time, it made things more difficult for Petr).
