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
He had to play on the top line against the opponent's best defensemen, alongside two players of much higher skill (Jagr+Plekanec). Of course he looked like he's struggling... And by the way, he was benched only for two periods, to which he responded by scoring a hattrick in the next game as I am sure you'd remember.

Nevermind, I don't want to be Cervenka apologist here, I believe Czech Republic has better players both in NHL and current National Team...I just believe that he can be a solid TOP6 forward in the NHL, something that my other fellow countrymen could try to deny in discussions with Flames fans here on HF .
