Starting to agree with that. Prust is a role player and they can be replaced, but he wasn't replaced. Pyatt is good along the wall and has OK hands in front of the net, but Prust was tougher, faster, and a much more intense and intelligent player. He worked beautifully with Boyle. I really miss him, but mainly because Sather did not replace him.
Prust wasn't coming back here even if we gave him 2.5 million. IIRC his girlfriend lives in MTL and she was a big factor in him going there.
