Plus we have bigger needs than spending a fortune on 3rd and 4th liners, we are fine with what we have if we can get Moen back for 1.6-1.7/year.
Prust is a better fighter than Staubitz. As for heavies, Staubitz isn't one either. Not that it matters, they're going the way of the dodo.

And you've said a few times in this thread that Staubitz can take a 'regular shift', is that why he's been playing 5 minutes or less every game? He's not a good hockey player. Granted, he's better than some of the heavies, but when put into his proper category of 'middle weight enforcer', because that's what he is, his utility or lack thereof becomes pretty obvious.

Given a choice between Prust and Staubitz, understanding you have a limited amount of spots in your forward roster, you take Staubitz?
