Bingo. Prust is effective in the pest role, but Avery is dubbed as the super pest for a reason.

Hes good for 35 points for a full season and Im sorry, Brandon Prust as great as he was in the last few games and as much as i want him back, will not break 20 points.

Prust is without a doubt a keeper. I think him and Avery on the same line with a half decent center could do wonders. But to just oust Avery because we have another new shiny toy is lunacy.

This team may not have the most potent offense in the league, but this year it was enough. The defense was the issue. And replacing 35 points at 1.9 million a year will not be easy. However, Replacing a pest who puts up 35 points at 1.9 mil a year is going to be even more difficult.
