The other thing is I think Prust has some skills. He might never be more than a 4th liner but he might be a guy who in a few years might be able to knock in 7-10 goals a year kind of like a Kypreos or a Kris King.
This is the biggest issue. He should not be viewed as capable of replacing a Brash (
Sorry about that...) or Voros (who is willing). He can survive against heavies, but is best utilized to neutralize numbskulls like Carcillo and Asham.
If we want to inject testosterone into the lineup we need to get Backus for our top six, Artyuchin for the 3rd-4th line and SOB for our top 4 Dmen. Sprinkle our lineup with bangers and snarl. I dare say that without a heavy they could still get the same results with the other additions I mentioned.
