I thought he might get his $2.2 mil per and he did even better. Put this way--I thought he would hit his target but I didn't think he was worth it.

Is Asham a better player? Not IMO. Asham is comparable though in several ways and he's a lot cheaper--though older. We did okay replacing him and I think Haley if the Rangers can turn his game up a notch might become a carbon copy of what Prust has done the past couple years. We'll see.
True, Prust is a better player than the ones I used as examples. But at the end of the day he's still a 4th liner...who's now getting paid 2.5M/year for 4 years. That's just silly.
