What has Hossa shown in the last two years that would have anyone believe that he has more potential to be a top-6 forward than Prucha? Prucha has done his share of earning, but only Renney's foolish belief that a player like him should not be a top-6 forward has him playing anywhere but.
The other thing is, and I belive that Renney sees this, is that Prucha doesn't have the size to be playing 18-20 minutes a game.
This is getting old. Until it is a problem, why treat it like one? Until he shows that he cannot do it, why invent reasons for him not to be playing where he deserves?
He's built like York and we all know what happened to York by the final 3rd of the season.
He's also build like Feury was and Gionta is. Or St. Louis. Or Sullivan. Or Kariya. No one seems to be worried about them not being able to play for the whole season.
Just keep playing Prucha on the 3rd line and give him some pp time and Prucha should be ok.
That does not change the fact that playing not playing him on the top two lines is a prime example of the Rangers not putting their best forward prospect since the likes of Amonte, Kovalev & Weight, into a position for best success.
