Bottom line is that Prospal is a no-brainer IMO, if the price is right of course.
What do you mean by cheap? He played for $2.48M last year and I doubt he would be taking a huge pay cut to return. And I definitely don't think he is a better player than most of our forwards anymore. Did anyone actually watch him play towards the end of the season? Torts didn't even want to put him on the ice anymore, he was so bad. He was looking a bit like Drury did when he was giving so much effort and there was just nothing left.

I get that he was AMAZING with Gaborik a couple years ago. He is not the same player anymore.
