I would argue that White's defensive instincts are at least at Prust's level. White also brings more verstility, as he has now proven himslef a capable center who can win faceoffs.
Well, I see things differently then. I can recall Prust killing an opponent's shift in our zone by winning a puck battle or stealing a puck in the defensive zone and either clearing it out himself or making a pass to someone to take it out of the zone. Granted, White hasn't seen much action, but he just doesn't appear to these little things as well as Prust.
