He was not brutal by any means. The guy was nearly on pace to score 20 goals in his first full season in the NHL after missing an entire training camp and sitting out during the lockout due to a blood clot in his leg. In addition to that he did not speak a lick of english, and was away from his newborn baby the entire year.

He was also never given an extended opportunity by Bob Hartley to solidify himself as a top six player. Of all Flames regulars who played this season only Blake Comeau, Tim Jackman, Brian McGrattan, and Steve Begin played less per night than Cervenka.

The guy has all world skill. Best of luck to him and his family moving forward.
