If you're going to give up Prucha and Montoya in a trade, you'd better get as close to a sure thing in return as possible.
I'd like some confirmation on these 'he has a bad attitude' rumors. Maybe he's just uncomfortable in his current surroundings?

He's 22. I'm 22, I know that I still make mistakes and get discouraged. It's alittle soon to be jumping to the conclusion that he has a 'bad attitude.'

I don't understand why fans expect every young kid to have the mental makeup of a 10 year veteran. Posters on this board will jump on a prospect and label him as a 'bad attitude' when he may just need some time to mature. It's absurd. We don't know what the situation is with Nikolai, and it's inapropriate and irresponcible to start labeling him like this.
