Czech NHL fan here, I think you guys are getting a solid player and a good guy for the locker room...the switch to NHL rink will be difficult for him, but I can see him contributing with 50-60 points. There is a lot of irrational hate towards Cervenka in Czech Republic due to his "poor" play for the national team ever since Vancouver Olympics, but mostly I believe it comes mostly from the casual fans, because they believed that if he's tearing up the Extraliga with point records, he could do the same against the best players in the world and when he didn't, they never forgave him. So if you encounter some of these opinions here on HF (I've seen one already), take it with a grain of salt.

Btw, my favourite Cervenka video is this, live on national TV during celebrations after winning the 2010 World Championship
