Prucha has struggeled this season, but he has skill, playing him on the 4th line aint going to get him anywhere, at least put him on the 3rd. It's BS.
You miss the point of why Hossa works on that line right now. Hossa is a beast along the boards, and takes up space in front of the net. Plus, he's a better defensive player than Prucha. Jagr has admitted that Hossa's work along the boards has created space for him to operate. Prucha doesn't play that type of game. Prucha is fearless, but, he needs a big center to create space for him. The signing of someone like Arnott, or a trade for someone like Lang would probably have been perfect for Prucha.
