As I said, I didn't start this thread to second-guess Sather. Montreal made Prust a generous offer that NY couldn't match w/o some payroll repercussions down the line. Prusty made the most of his FA opportunity. It's just business.

What I'm saying is that,.... losing Prust has made a big difference to the Rangers. Yes, he's one player. A bottom 6 guy. On paper, one could argue that Powe and Asham fills the void for less $$$$. But the results on the ice tell me otherwise. Last year, we were much better on the PK. We were better at holding onto leads in the 3rd period. Prusty played a big part in all that. Heck, it seems like opponents are getting more physical and taking liberties against Gaborik this season. Prust wouldn't have stood for that.
