Good win tonight boys, and ohhhh ya, nice goal by that guy wearing number 8, I think his name is .......... Wait for it, yah Prust baby!
I don't see how it's embarrassing. Prust type players have been dime-a-dozen for the Rangers comparable to guys like Betts and Ortmeyer. Sure he was part of the identity with the Rangers in terms of hardwork/blue collar types, but their core still fits to that identity including their captain. I don't think he is worth 2.5m for the Rangers, but the Habs I guess have cap space to spare and needed this type of player. Rangers always seem to find Prust-types from the waiver wire or their own AHL callups for some reason.
