I still think Prucha can perform the way he did last season, he may not have as many goals, but look at the lines he's being put on...the 3rd or 4th line that get no minutes and he's on the second PP unit. he was the guy that last yr was all around the net and would do anything to geta loose puck, in games you can see parts of that game still there, but I think he's just on the wrong line or something, it's not him though because he works hard to be on this team. that's my thought.... his future i dont know rumors have it sather is dangling him in trades, I don't know how accurate that is.

he's a budding superstar. he makes the players around him better. he's a top six forward, but the only reason he's not producing as such is because Renney is an assclown and not playing him as much as he should.

not my opinions, but be prepared.

So he's like in the doghouse of Renney !

Why he isn't playing with Shanahan instead of Hossa or Betts ???

That's a question only Random Renney can answer. And he will probably not give you an answer you will feel satisfied with, it will probably be an answer in the means of: "I feel Prucha needs some time (to pick up his game and intensity)." Random Renney could be an excellent politician that never actually answers the question that's given to him.

Tough to explain...

if he's in the doghouse. Also, -31-, I wouldn't say that people are saying the 'only' reason is because of Renney, but it is A reason.

There are multiple reasons for his decline. First, the arrival of Shanahan. This was predictable because much of Prucha's success came from the PP last season, and much of that success came from him being on the top PP unit. This also helped with his confidence and timing at even strength, I believe. Shanny arrives and he's no longer on the top unit, and his offense hurts. That's logical, and I think we can all agree that his PP goals are down as a result. That, I believe, is something on which we all can agree. My second thought was that less PP time, and thus less shooting, hurts his even strength performance. I believe a shooter needs to keep in a rhythm to be successful. When he's not getting the PP chances, it hurts his all-around game.

Why do some, including me, blame Renney? Prucha's struggled to score this season (although he is 5th on the team in goals after the obvious 4 who average between 8 and 10 minutes more of ice time and who play on the top PP unit). Where does Renney come in? When Prucha struggled a bit on a second unit that doesn't have a centerman, and where Shanny has also struggled (1 goal in 17 games? - 0 at even strength) he sends Prucha to the fourth line. OK, I can understand trying to get lines going and trying to juggle things up, but fourth line? Playing with Orr and Hollweg? And he's been playing there too long. It's an entire coaching philosophy that trouble me (we've always said, why isn't Cullen bumped down? What was so wrong with Immonen on that second line (not ideal, but there's few options)).

Anyways, what's Prucha's potential? The kid has heart and he tries hard. He's gotten better defensively. He needs to be in the right situation to be a 30+ goal scorer, but seems like he can be a 20 goals scorer even while not in the right situation. He has a nose for the net and has a nice shot. That's tough to teach. There should be a place for him. Superstar? He won't be because the support needs to be there. Good sniper? Why not?

Renney feels that a 20-30 goal scorer is best suited on the 4th line, where he can lead Orr in hits on certain nights,(this helps a team, that has struggled to score), and may improve his overall D skills, as he'll learn to play back alot, to cover for his linemates who can't skate, or get out of position often, after making a big hit. He's in a slump, and lack of pp time, (to allow Krog and others get their needed icetime), plus the addition of Shanny, has kept his goal production down. He also hasn't seemed the same, (since his knee injury last season), so even that needs to be factored in, as to why this season isn't as productive as last.

I feel Prucha has been made an example out of because a few costly mistakes this year (a couple were his fault, but not all).

I also think Renney has had it in his mind all year to keep his gung-ho attack style touch and go because of his previous knee injury, his slight stature and development.

Thats why we see him in and out of the top lines. I have a feeling Tom is almost "saving" him for the playoff run when he can deploy a fresher, hungrier Prucha, instead of concussed banged up half version like the end of last year.

Personally, im not for babying players.
