the rangers are offering him a fourth line role at a good fourth line salary. he wants a third line role and salary. that's the difference. can't really say who's 'right', i guess, since we don't really have a season's worth of prust third line work to examine. i'm with sather though, i don't see prust having nearly enough offensive skill for the third line.
He's a 4th liner. A third line player can accept a pass in his skates or one that is slightly off the mark. He cannot. he is a grinder/pk specialist who can drop the gloves. A very good 4th liner and the contract we offerered is good for that role. If he wants to be paid like a third line player he will need to go elsewhere because we know he is not that. Shame.
