uhh, yeah that's why i said i don't think prucha should be in the NHL yet

and i think you really have to be careful about how you go about letting players "earn" icetime. so you don't hand wiseman 2nd line icetime...you start him on the 3rd or 4th lines...i think you have to be fully aware of the fact that he's not going to be getting as much icetime there and he's not going to be getting "offensive" icetime either. you can't stick a guy on the 4th line and expect him to start scoring so he "earns" his way up.

it's a tricky spot cuz it's hard for a guy with limited icetime to prove he deserves 2nd line icetime over someone else who is already getting it, unless you really pay attention to his play.

it seems that too often in the past the rangers have been content to maintain the status quo instead of giving young players a shot if they deserve it
