It might not be a right time to bump this thread and I really don't mean to troll or anything. Just want to comment on Prust.
This man brings ehat cannot be measured with stats. I'll throw the old cliché ''watch him play'' but in his case, it's 100% true. The intensity and hard work he brings is great for this team. He forechecks like very few players can, he's relentless and even though he doesn't appear often on the score-sheet, you can be sure whenever he gets in the offensive zone, something's gonna happen. Be it a scoring chance, a penalty in his favor and whatnot. He brings character and even though he isn't big, adds a much needed toughness and grit to Montreal who are a smaller than average team. I'm not scared for him when he's on the ice and we know he can handle himself and protect the younger players. Again, none of that shows up on the stats on NHL.com you gotta watch him to appreciate it.
It's only the first year but from what I hear Rangers fans saying, we can expect some more years like that. The best part is that he seldom takes stupid penalties. It's even more remarkable when you consider his style of play. I'm very happy with this signing and if I'm Bergevin, I'm not looking back. Great player.
