The number is so small because he has no vision on the ice, especially in the offensive zone. And don't blame his linemates. Feds has scored plenty in his career and we know Prust can finish when given the opportunity.
He has a role, but it is not on the 3rd line; not even close.
No he's not... That's just completely unfair.
And you cannot just get rid of the idea of having anyone who can fight in the regular season. Teams will take advantage of you. For the playoffs, fine with that lineup above and leaving Asham out of the lineup.
And personally I think Asham is decent with the puck. He's better than Rupp, and can actually move around a bit to make a hit on someone.
Overall, I didn't think the Rangers played particularly great this game, and I'm still bothered by the likes of Del Zotto and his giveaways. I also think Gilroy sucks and has zero defensive instincts but he did manage to have a decent game this game.
Still don't like the balance/fluidity of the lines so there is going to have to be some more juggling there.
And we need Girardi back... McDonagh, Staal, Stralman, and barely Del Zotto can be trusted defensively. Eminger I prefer as the 6th.
