Nobody talks about Pribyl because nobody here follows the Czech 2nd division. He's not really as exciting a prospect as Avtsin though from what I hear.

Don't forget another one of these mythical Euros was once a guy named Alexei Emelin. So you really never do know.

Avtsin was a high risk, high reward prospect, regardless of where he's from or what language he speaks. Like the majority of high risk prospects, it looks like he's not going to be anything, at least in North America. Plenty of these highly skilled kids never develop a real game.
