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?
Not sure where you get that Prust is a better fighter. In general he fights smaller guys and lesser fighters, Staubitz fight all the top guys so his record won't be as good.
It's not an either or choice, we already have Moen who can do what Prust does. Staubitz will cost you 500-600k for one year, in order to get a guy like Prust you'll have to give him 3 years and around 5 mil to leave NYR. That's money I prefer to spend on a 2nd line winger or a center to take some heat off Plekanec(defensively and on PK).
