Stan says NO DEALS!

On the pregame a viewer asked Stan about the Blue Jackets trade rumor & who the Rangers are talking about trading, Stan said the Rangers should not trade Prucha & compared him to Zetterberg in Detroit saying that he needed time to develop, Stan also said the Rangers should not make any trades.

Just for ****s and giggles...

Zetterberg scored 37 goals through his first two seasons.

Prucha scored 52.

Prucha is off to a slow start this year, but i can guarantee that next year he will score 20+

He is not on the same level as Zetterberg, however. But he is a good player and nowhere near as bad as a lot of people make him out to be.

I like Prucha, he needs top 6 minutes & PP time, I don't want him traded.
It nnoys me that so many people bent over backwards to give Hossa a chance on the 1st line & did nothing with it, why doesn't Prucha get the same consideration??

I laughed because I predicted somebody posting Stan's comments on whats apparently the most respectable NYR board on the planet. Funny, its not as respectable as it was an hour ago because somebody thought it was worth discussing what that idiot had to say

Stan said the same thing when asked that question during the 1930-31 season.

its very very very very VERY difficult for a player to add 10%+ of their current weight onto such a small frame, and not lose footspeed.


the NHL today is a very speed oriented game, and Prucha is already kind of slow for a guy of his size, add 20 lbs to his frame, and you might as well pack his bags back to the Czech Republic, because he wont be able to compete at this level.

While I think I understand what Stan is trying to get at with the comparison, I still don't see Prucha as anything other than a sniper. I think every Ranger fan would be happy, if he can become a consistant 25-35 goal scorer. However, I don't think Prucha has the vision or puck handling skills to approach Zetterburg's level of play.

Stan doesn't have any inside info. He just says things with no basis to support them.

Prucha is available depending on what we get for him. He is not the next Zetterberg.
In Petr's defense--he has improved defensively--is not as prone to giveaways as in the past. He has also been a streaky kind of scorer. So after his two goal night I'd be willing to wait and see if a few start coming now. Who knows that in a couple weeks he's hit double figures and more people will be for keeping him around.

As for Fischler--what he knows or what he seems to know has been zilch for a long time. His commentary is practically all a kind of spin/entertainment to fill up the gaps between the action. Almost nothing coming from him is credible.

When I hear Stan talk I just pretend I'm listening to one of those know it all grandpa's, who you know really doesn't know anything, but you let them say what they want cause they're old and you feel bad. He means well, but he knows nothing.

I've always been a huge Prucha supporter because of the way he plays every time he's on the ice. Plus I've never seen a guy get DRILLED as often as he does and keep on going. The kid never wants to miss a shift. He goes 110 % at all times. I also never understood people's logic in him not being able to score anymore because his rookie year he scored a bunch on the powerplay with Jagr. Because, he's still playing the powerplay with Jag, so what, he can't score anymore because Michael Nylander's gone? He's had rough luck this year, and the puck hasn't been bouncing his way. If he keeps playing (and there's NO reason to believe he ever won't) the way that he always plays, he's going to be fine.

Stan has been around hockey longer then most of the people on this board have been alive.

Stan has more hockey knowledge and experience then anyone here could dream of.

What he says should be respected, as should he.

I don't believe Stan was comparing Prucha and Zetterberg as players.

He was comparing their situations.

Zetterberg was on thin ice in Detroit.

Prucha has been on thin ice in New York.

Detroit gave Zetterberg time, and it worked out.

As New York should give Prucha time.


THAT is what Stan was suggesting.

And by using a star player like Zetterberg as an example of his point, it gives his argument more weight.

I think SOME of you WANT to read too much into things he says so you can blast the guy for what you INTERPERATE him saying.
