As someone who was going to buy a Prust jersey if they had kept him beyond last season, I sure as hell miss watching him, and of course he's the type of player that every team wants and needs. I think prior to Powe's arrival this team missed him a lot more in the bottom six and on the PK, but as we saw, it was a hole that was filled with a simple trade of a useless player like Rupp.

One thing I don't miss about Prust is the anxiety I felt for him, particularly late in the season when he'd be dealing with various ailments and still never slowed down. As TheRightWay said, guys like Prust, who play balls to the wall at all times despite being smaller than almost everyone on the ice, have a very short shelf life. Even Torts would talk about how he felt he had to rein Prust in at times for his own good.
