A quote put up by the teams own media department, directly asking Galchenyuk if he's happy a teammate is coming back from injury? That is pretty much the textbook example of a fluff quote. And even in a fluff piece Gally won't claim that Prust around doesn't automatically protect him from physical play:
Quote:
“Other teams may not be looking not to hit when he’s around, because everyone plays aggressively all the time."
He's admitting teams will still look to hit when he's around, because the aggression level is the same. He gives Prust credit for being a guy you want around when there's scrums in front of the net. That's probably true. If I was involved in a shoving match in front of the net, I'd feel better if it was Prust behind me and not say, Cammalleri, for sure.
