Yeah, management doesn't want you back. They only offered you a 1M raise/year, on a 3 year contract (which is pretty solid for an energy/tough guy.) Get real.

I don't understand when a player wants to get over-paid and management doesn't cave, they automatically think the team
"doesnt want them." Come on.

the team doesnt want you back Prust...at your RIDICULOUS asking price


over 2 million per for a 4th liner with no hands or offensive game? good luck getting that elsewhere.

enjoy Toronto or Long Island!

I love Prust but $1.6M is absolutely where I draw the line. I cannot blame him for wanting to make the most out of his next contact though. Someone will pay ther $2M+ he's looking for. I sincerely wish Brandon the best.

I love Prust, but not enough to pay him $2.2mil per year.

I think we love his on ice character. From what I've heard about him off the ice, I don't think I'd like him. There are obviously a lot of good things about his play, but he takes too many bad penalties, fights at the wrong time, and loses too often.

Yea, all that charity work and everything he does away from the game is so selfish of him.

Funny thing is he's still doing a fundraiser event with MDZ in a week or so. Real awful guy to have around.

Hahaha is he out of his mind? Good. Adios

I have a feeling he'll sign with some **** team willing to pay that, and probably won't win a cup. Have fun watching your old team mates hold it up. But, hey he will have $

Prust will be missed, but not for 2.2 million, we definitely have overpaid for UFA fighters in the past (Brash, Boogie, and now Rupp) so I understand why Prust wants to get paid.

The real problem is that Prust fits our system, he may not be quite the player he is on another team. He will follow in the footsteps of Orr and Avery, who went for the big payday and then became irrelevant.

Hopefully Boyle or MDZ can talk some sense to him, but he shouldn't get more than 1.8 TOPS and Konopka can do his job plus win faceoffs.

2.2 mill is a joke if he really believes he's worth that.

Telling from his tweet, it's not, and he's as good as gone.

Loved him here. Guess i'll have to change my avi now.

I liked Andre Deveaux when he was up with the Rangers. Hope he has a strong camp.

he's a UFA and a career minor leaguer. They can and will do better in finding a replacement

Prust won't get 2.2, but he will get a cap floor team to overpay for his services.

Don't want to see him go, but if that's really his asking price maybe it will grease the wheels for Konopka. I would have liked to bring him last year and still like him for this team, given his play and willingness to accept cheap contracts.

Geez... unless you know for a fact that you're not going to sign any kind of deal with this team, WTF is he thinking with that tweet?

Open post to Brandon Prust, wake up and smell the coffee. You had a down year. Your play got worst as the year progressed. You were a human cough machine in your own end all year long making those stupid passes to the middle in your own end without ever looking to see if it was an option. Glen Sather doesn't love you? I wish I was so unloved that my employer would give me a $1M raise in spite of how poorly I played compared to the 2 prior years! Get you head out of your arse. Wise up.

P.S. I love you as a player, but you are dead wrong here. You are a dime a dozen player that the team can and will replace at a fraction of the cost.

what a dopey tweet. The fans want him back just as much as management... for $1.6m per. Wish him the best, he'll need it with the weight of that contract hanging over his head.

Definitely one of my favorite players but he is no way worth that much. Doesn't help when he calls out management over Twitter.

2,2mil per is too much.. I have a strong feeling they will meet half way and he'll sign 1,4-1,6 mil per.
