Prust was 10th on ES icetime in New York this year. He was 4th line. Year before 11th, before that 12th.

He's a 4th liner. Hasn't been 3rd line for at least 3 years by first glance. To be a very good 3rd liner wouldn't he have to actually play 3rd line minutes at some point?

If they got a very good 3rd liner for 2.5 million I'd be pretty happy. But they didn't. They got a pretty decent 4th liner for 2.5 million. That's entirely different.
