yep. every business has a salary structure. smart teams will stick religiously to their structure. they just cant overpay for a fourth-liner. if they envision him as a third-liner, they could pay him more. but i think he's just not that skilled. maybe another team sees him that way and will pay him that way. good for him. and maybe the rangers are wrong. but i sense that - unfortunately - they're correct and we won't be seeing prust in a rangers jersey.
he's an excellent ranger, and i'll miss him. but such is life in the salary-capped world.
i kind thought he was happy to occupy that fourth-line role, but, i guess he has greater ambitions. good luck to him - except when he plays the rangers.
