Petr Prucha is a gamer. He plays his heart out on every shift. He fights in front of the goal in order to score, not in order to antagonize. He goes in the corners. Hits the boards. Hustles. Score big goals. And yet, Rangers Coach Tom Renney cannot find a place for him in the lineup.
On Monday, December 29th, Aaron Voros is scratched and Petr Prucha dresses. All he does is score the game tying goal. All he does is hustle. All he does is give his all and play smart. Yet, I am sure Renney will sit him as soon as he can.
Confusingous does not know what happens in the locker room. Confusingous does not know what happens on the practice ice. He does know that Petr Prucha goes all out. And the Rangers fans know it as well. This is shown by the chants and cheers thrown down at him in the third period. We all can see it. What does Renney (and Sather) know that the rest of us do not?
Oh, and why did Petr Prucha not go to Hartford when asked? Because Petr Prucha does not belong in the AHL when he is healthy. He belongs on the third or fourth line where he will score twenty goals and give maximum effort.
