A guy that can put up those numbers, kill penalties, bust his ass every shift, and play all 3 positions up front? Those guys aren't exactly growing on trees.

Regardless, he never would have gotten the opportunity in NY that he has in Phoenix. Especially with Tortorella's "instant decision" mentality.
I mean Petr Prucha could score 20 goals in this league and he's a 3rd liner in the KHL. **** happens.
