After break through last year most teams have figured him out and defensemen know by now all his moves. He had hard time to adjust to it this season and I think Rangers coaches work with him in that area. As any pure winger he needs a good centre to be productive. Rangers are short in this department, therefore, and also, since Shanahan took his spot on PP, he is not 30 goal scored this year. Due to his struggles this season Renney tried many things to keep him going, including playing defense, but nothing really worked. Nothing will work up until good 2C is on the team. The more I look at it, the more I realize that letting Rucchin go was a horrendous mistake.

Bottom line : absence of Rucchin is , IMO, is a main reason for Prucha not being effective.
