The Hockey Rodent offers a very sober and sad, if true, requiem for Petr Prucha's career with the New York Rangers.
He hammers on a few points that we've been making over here at the RangerPundit for ages:
- Tom Renney has destroyed, "killed," a very talented young player, Petr Prucha.
- Tom Renney has taken the fun out of going to Rangers games.
- Tom Renney hockey sucks.
The Rodent reads the tea leaves and concludes that Prucha's career in New York is history. He finishes his Renney rant by saying:
The gospel truth is that I do not hate Tom Renney. I genuinely like the guy. He's dapper. He's articulate. He's got the team higher up in the standings than they deserve to be.
I just hate how he's so thoroughly sterilized this club and how he's converted virtuosos into robots. He's blanded the brand so much I feel as if I've crossed the Hudson River.
Prucha was a reliable break from the meat and potatoes. Admittedly dreadful on the backcheck. Yet his anarchistic attack dared give this club a modicum of personality. But no. Tom couldn't have too much of that.
Renney killed Prucha. And now he's killing Zherdev as well. And "yes". I'm angry
Amen brother. Amen.
