that's Columbus. that's Atlanta. I want to be Detroit. I want to be New Jersey. successful franchises don't ship out their impactful vets and replace them with as many rookies as possible, as you seem to be obsessed with doing. you need people who have been there before.
Tortorella has said that Prospal has value even when he's not producing on the ice, because the younger players can see his enthusiasm for the game.
as far as him not contributing to winning a cup, whatever you want to believe. I think he already has contributed to that effort, as his play down the stretch gave the young players the experience of 5 playoff games. yeah, when it's that close (it wasn't a tie-break) there are lots of deciding factors that push you into the playoffs, but Prospal scoring big goals down the stretch contributed more than a shootout goal here and there.
