I think what you meant to say is he's not a very good offensive player.

He is a good player, his offensive skill set just isn't his strongest attribute. Like everyone said, Prust deserved to be out there, and part of how Prust plays is due to how his line played that game. Breaking Prust and Boyle up at that point doesn't make Prust the player that he was all game. In general, I agree that if you need a goal, stick with the top two lines, but if someone is the best player you've had this game, put his line out there. No on is the best player in a game without the help of his linemates, I'm sorry if you believe otherwise.

Also, we're in first place
