Byers. Add Kveton.

Regarding Kveton: it seems that all of a sudden he's fallen in people's estimation because the Rangers' PR department came out with an overview of all their European forward prospects that states he'll be playing in the Czech Republic for the 09-10 season. While I understand that the timing of the Czech league's schedule means that Kveton probably won't be at Traverse City or the big club's camp, nowhere does it actually say that he won't be at either. It just forecasts that the Czech Republic is where he'll be playing his professional hockey this year - given the number of NHL ready wingers the Rangers already have under contract, I think that's hardly a shocking assumption.

Furthermore, his development certainly seems to have done well playing in the Czech Republic last year, so I don't really see that as a big deal. If he continues his progression and goes from top 10 scorer in the league as a 20-21 year old to, say, top 3 scorer in the league as a 21-22 year old, don't you think the Rangers scout will be there with a Gilroy-esque (2 years, one-way, for low 7 figures) deal right around January 1st...?

I still see him as a viable prospect until such time as I hear definitive statements that he has no desire to play in the NHL.

Not at all. Hollweg ran around the ice like a pitbull on skates. Byers plays a much smarter game and is very effective in front of the net.

I think Kveton could be a very solid player. For me, I need at least some assurance that he'll come to NA to play otherwise I can't justify ranking him ahead of guys that may be less skilled, but are already here.

If he could just suck it up and play a season with the Pack, he'd probably be an early season call-up.

Has a rep as a bad kid that he will have to overcome. Quit after one month at Wisconsin and traded by Avs after one year in their system. Cause and effect.
