ya agm Dudley already mentioned in a that they view Prust as a 3rd line player. But i doubt they plan on them playing together on the 3rd line.

Moen role was always suppose to be a 4th line, but was always pumped up in the line due to injuries. Ex going into last year, we had Cammy, Plek, Cole, Patches, Gomez, Gionta, DD,Eller, AK, ahead of him, all projected to play a top 9 role, Moen only got increased minutes due to injuries.

Edit: did some research on the web, it seems like Habs (MT) plans on using Prust the way Martin used Moen, 3rd liner, and once in a while put him on a top 2 line if it needs a jump, or a player needs a benching (ex Bourque if he plays with Plek and Gionta and needs to sit or play the 4th).
