Someone on Spokane has to replace Tyler Johnson, their center who finished one point behind Linden Vey for the scoring title, so if Uher is a true center as every website says I'd imagine Spokane will think twice before just cutting him.

Pechurskiy for example was probably much easier to cut as an overaged import because at best he was a #1B goalie or more realistically Drew Owsley's backup. Not really where you'd wanna waste those two slots unlike Uher and Spokane's case.
Yeah I can understand why Pechurskiy was cut as having an overage backup doesn't make sense whereas Uher will probably have a much bigger role on the team.
