And those who are basically throwing Prust under the boat before he's even played a minute in the Habs uniform have to understand that there was a desperate need for a player like him on this team and that had they not slightly overpaid they would have Diaz and Weber playing forward again.

That is why they paid that much for him and that is why it has zilch to do with PK's contract.
Prust was a UFA and that is the main reason he was overpaid. And PK's time to be a UFA will come one day too and that is when he will cash in if he is the player that everybody thinks he should be.
