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

get some facts, Cervenka is (was ?) hated because he burned truckload of goal scoring chances, most of them served by Jagr.
Coach even sit him for a game.

But i think the hate is gone, becuase most ppl thought he was product of Jagr, but Cervenka dominated KHL stats after Jagr left too.

Im not sure if he is going to rock in NHL, most likely not that much, but i wish you guys and to him GL
