How much do we miss Prust?

All right, I know that Brandon Prust's salary demand might have been too high to fit into the team's payroll structure. But damn! I sure miss the guy. Excellent PK'er and grinder. A willingness to drop the gloves against almost anyone, if it would light a fire under the rest of the team's collective keister.

Who did we bring in this year to fill the void? Powe is a good PKer. Asham has grit and more than holds his own in fights. But nobody on the current roster has filled the role that Prust had in being the fiery emotional sparkplug that would get the Rangers to kick into overdrive whenever needed.

I'm not second-guessing Sather in letting Prust walk, as the team has to be careful in how available cap space is used. But I admit not realizing how much the Rangers would miss Prust this season. Montreal snagged him, and that move is paying dividends for them now.
