He's also our Captain. Comparing him to Prust is laughable at best.
Captain? There is no such a role in the game. It's a locker room job. Very important one, but not in the game.
Scoring has little to with role. That is why there are scoring forwards and defensive forwards. There are scoring role players and defensive role players. Each role is important. Callahan scores, yet he is a role player. Boyle is a Power Forward. The fact he doesn't score much won't change his role.
Prust plays on 1st line for Canadiens. Did he become a sniper? A power forward? No. Still role player. Can Trerrien make Callahan out of him? Maybe, because Prust has that very important ingredient in him that make them similar - heart.Not always sufficient, but always required aspect.
