Roman Cervenka to play in the NHL next season

He's a smallish forward who has a nice skillset. The passing/playmaking abilities are very good. Plays center, but would translate better as a winger in the NHL. He reminds me of a Marek Svatos. He's centering Jagr in the olympic games. Joe Michelletti said he's looking to join the NHL next season.

Sign me up in efforts of getting him over the summer. Maybe Jagr can join him.

Listed at 5'11" and 190lb right now — small but not tiny, has good speed. If he can adjust he'll be a good 2nd line center for sure. He's very good at faceoffs.

Given that it would take zero assets to get him, all teams with weakness at center should be interested.

His numbers in the Czech league look really good.

They're VERY good. The Czech record is 77 points which was set by a player on a very high scoring team in a slightly higher scoring year. He won't break it, given there's only 2 games left after the break, but it's still very impressive given that:

Cervenka plays on a crappy team *the 2nd leading scorer on that team has 33 points, I believe. He also leads the Czech league by 18 points. He also plays the PK for Slavia, although by NHL standards he's not really that good in that role.

His stats so far this season for HC Slavia Praha:

48gp-30g-41a-71p

6 shy of the record.

Sounds like he's an undersized 3rd liner, exactly what this team is missing

Yeah, we have enough of talented players in Brasher, Boyle, Dubinsky, Voros, Rissmiller, Callahan, Shelley, Christensen and co...

Hockeydb has him listed at 127 lbs, which must be a typo. Poor guy would get killed here at that weight.

Hartford could use more offense.

The Rangers cant afford to go with another "project" or "risk".

Because he would be, no one knows how his game will translate to the North American game. Pass, and pass on Jagr too.

His scoring went down this year, which is kind of disappointing. He needed a real good year I would think for the NYR to offer him an NHL roster spot and for him to come over.

This other guys only a year older and is outscoring him 2 points to 1, I'd take a flyer.

You wouldn't offer a 1-1.5 mil 1 year deal for him, in a year with no expectations?

Its projects like Ambuhl and Jamtin that need to stop. olympians for the Czech republic I think are ok.

If the price is reasonable, what's the risk?

Unless we're using up our final contract spot on this guy, I don't think adding a decent talent to the organization is a bad thing.

Still, if he's 127lbs I definitely wouldn't waste our time. He'd be dead before the preseason was over.

If I had to guess, the 127 is a typo for 172.

How many full grown men weight 127 lbs, especially that are professional hockey players.

On Wikipedia (not the greatest source, but still) it says 85 kg, which equals roughly 190 lbs and should be ok.
We don't have to give up any assets, so I really don't know how trying to sign him could be a bad move. He obviously has talent and can score, and it's not like our current team couldn't need both.

You're probably right, but if he's actually 5'7, I wouldn't be shocked. Prucha is 5'11 or so, but he can't weigh more than 150lbs.

Cervenka will do the damage in this tournament. And it will draw interest around NHL teams.
He is built like bulldog - he is not tall, but he is not pushover.
He started last year with kick box lessons, it did help his strenght, coordination and so on.
Roman is head and shoulders above everyone else in Extraliga(71 points in 48g), playing for crappy Prague team...second best scorer in that team has 38 points!
He can shoot, pass, very good skater, all around player.
His mind is set for NHL and wants to succeed here- that's the difference between him and Kveton.
Kveton is happy in Extraliga so far...and is hesitant to play in AHL if he somehow fails with Rangers.
He is not one year wonder, and has great work attitude.
Atleast 1,5-2M$ will be required to get him signed imho...

Curious possibility. Using league translations (.74 for the Czech league), he would score the following in the NHL with his pace in the KHL this season:

41 GP - 30 G - 22 A - 52 Pts

Given his size, though, he might be more accustomed to the European game. He is on the Czech Olympic team, playing on the second line with Jagr. I'll have to watch for him in the next Czech game (# 10).

EDIT: He had the primary assist on Jagr's half-breakaway goal last night.

Okey, so he is 3'3 and 27 lbs, but does he have a barrell chest and looks like a greek god -- like Kevin Stevens?

Nah, I don't want him anyway. We have enough talent. Voroos and co. We need more "Torts types". Kotalik and the likes.
