Exactly. That is why I doubt Pru is showcased. He is not tradable at this point. He is what he became - a depth forward. Those are not every game players. He will be like that till the end of his current contract. He will be in press box by his choice, if he wanted to play hockey, then HFD would love to have him.

I do. Renney has a feeling he is getting canned and he is just buying himself some time. The only sense for him to continue his work was to get Sundin and try to buid or re-rebuild the NYR offense. His boss failed him. Second time, first Jagr, now Sundin. After that the only logical step for Sather would be to replace Renney. BOSSES RID OF THOSE THEY FAILED.
