Okay first off, Ranger fans did not proclaim that. A NHL analyst said that he thinks THAT 2005-06 season he was having a better year than Crosby. And when he said that, he was not really that off. And when he said that, it was blown up on HFboards by a NON Ranger fan and thus started a big debate

Second. The kid had a lot of potential. 30 goals in his first year. But for some reason Renney didnt like his style and dropped him from the first line with Jagr to 2nd and 3rd line duties. He then only had 20 goals. Two seasons and 50 goals. Not bad

For no reason given, Prucha lost out and was played on the 4th line and then to healthy scratches. He was shipped to Phoenix where never really fit in. Had small glimpses of his old self but I think no one ever really gave him the same shot he had in his rookie year.

Hes doing fine over in KHL
