Why would he not have been able to do that? A player's style is a player's style. Prucha looked very much into the game when he was on Jagr's line last year.
Renney haven't used him as much as he did last season because of that.
Rubbish. Renney has not used him properly strictly becuase he is Renney. Prucha scored 3 goals in 6 games when he found his ice time reduced in the Montreal game. Then he found himself on the 4th line. Renney has also not allowed for him to get his shot down or maintain his confidence by not giving him PP time (a place where he was every bit as effective as Shanny last year).
I thought taking it easy and reliving Prucha of some pressure by playing him on a 4th line wasn't such a bad idea, and got asked the question, how on earth is playing Prucha on a 4th line gooing to make him better, now he comes back after 2 straight games on a 4th line and plays better in the 3rd then he have all season (IMO), so obviously it had a positive effect.
This is not cause and effect. Prucha did not magically start to play well because he was relegated to the 4th line.
