Ortmeyer

Orr

Prust in Montreal will be like Orr in Toronto, he will not be able to do what he did here there. He will fight, but some players are just built for certain teams and don't translate well. All we have to do is think of Kotalik for a recent example.

I really do wish Prust the best and hope he proves me wrong, but the Habs are a very different team, under immense pressure, and play a different style of hockey than the Rangers.
Exactly what I thought, I just dont see the fit for him there with there speed and less grinding. Good for him tho well see what happens
