    Prucha has 20 points in 30 games 16 of them goals.
    Steen has 10 goals and 10 assists in 32 games
    Who as of right now is better and who would you prefer on your team
    Prucha has 16 points in his last 15 games 12 of them goals
    Steen has 7 in last 15 games.

    Steen plays PP, PK
    Prucha plays an aggressive and finesse game on the powerplay and even strength.

    I continue to do so.

    Prucha. He is 1st in the NHL in goals per 20 mins.

    The kid barely even plays, he averages like 10 mins a game since he doesn't kill PKs and he plays on the third line.

    Tough call. Prucha is clearly the better sniper, but Steen is clearly the better all-around player. It really depends what you need.

    However, Steen has succeeded in every situation he's been put in so far, and I think he'll be captain material down the road, so I'll go with him.

    I'm too biased to answer, but I will say that Steen fits a need for the Leafs that we'd normally have 2 or 3 players for

    Didn't Steen play on the top line for awhile on the leafs? Im sure that helped his stats out.

    Both are very good players though.

    He did yes, he worked his way onto the top line with Mats Sundin through hard work.

    It's helped his stats somewhat, though he was producing on a similar pace before moving onto the top line, some worried on the Leaf board that he was being rushed with top line duties, 1st PK pairing and occasional PP time.

    Since he's been out the past few games nursing an injury Tucker and Czerkawski have played well with Mats, so I think Steen might be paired up with Stajan or Wellwood again when he returns.

    Well a fair argument could also be made for Prucha having Jagr on the PP, in which he's set up Petr for some pretty nice ones...

    Haven't seen Steen enough to comment. All I can say about Prucha is he's awesome. And he doesn't just play a finesse game. He throws his body around very recklessly and it doesn't matter how big the opposing player is or whether he's giving or taking the hit. His defense has gotten better also and he will go down to block shots. He's a little kamikaze with a lot of skill.

    Whoever said Prucha doesn't play a great all around game must not have seen him play.

    Kid backchecks like there is no tomorrow.

    his defensive zone awareness isn't great though...but he's always trying hard, and he's respectable enough in his own zone

    haven't seen enough of steen to be able to say who i'd rather have, i'm just happy with prucha.

    User name aside: Prucha.

    what impresses me about prucha is the ability to score in so many ways. creative sniper shots, one timers, break aways, penalty shots, diving whacks at a loose pucks, or banging home a rebound. There is no situation he cant produce in.

    You know that works both ways, right? Put Ovechkin on the PP, and against weaker matchups, and see how he does.

    I think a better question would have been Svatos vs Prucha.

    Imo, It's not better question because Marek owns Prucha in every aspect of the game ;)

    Prucha. And it's not because I'm Czech as well. I simply like his play.

    wait, what?

    what is the point you're trying to make? ovechkin doesn't play on the PP? that if he played against weak matchups, but with less icetime, that his goals per minutes ratio would be better than prucha's?

    either way, it doesn't make sense

    he's assuming

    that Prucha only plays the PP against weaker teams which couldn't be further from the truth.

    But if he doesn't see him play alot that could be his reason for not knowing what he's talking about.
