As you pointed out, in the 29 games he played last year, Prospal put up 23 points. In the 37 games Wolski played with the Rangers, he put up only 19 points.
As a 1 year stopgap, Prospal makes a lot more sense than Wolski, because even though he's slow and old, Torts will actually play him in the top 6 -- because Prospal will actually compete.
Wolski is the same age as the core of this team. He has as much talent as any of them as well. I don't see at all how the aging Prospal is a better fit than 25 year old Wolski.
Everyone talking about Torts distaste for Wolski remember he had Boyle sent to HDF already in his mind before camp. Players make the coaches change their minds so stop with the Torts will never play him stuff. Wolski comes in and produces I don't see why Torts wouldn't play him.
