Prust is limited as a player and as such should be limited to a certain role. 4th line grinder with some PK.

I would take 2 minutes off his ES run, Boyle as well, and disperse that amongst Dubi, AA and Hagelin. Guys that can actually both create and finish alot more than Prust and Boyle, last season notwithstanding
This I agree with. To me, aside from not overpaying, the main positive to letting Prust go is that we won't see him getting ES time down a goal or tied with 2 minutes to go. The same is true of Fedotenko. It was my biggest problem with the way Tortorella coaches this team. As long as Halpern and Asham don't become those guys, we'll be a better team.
