-don't like asham but at 1mill, ill take that over 2.5 for prust as much as i like prust
-sather needs to front load the hell out of both suter/parise, we have enough room for both, if the cap hit is only 7ish, why not throw as much signing bonuses and front load in it, rangers have no problem spending the cash, as long as the cap hit does not go to high
we get these guys it solves any problems we once have, on top of this we trade duby and can even add another player or two like doan/jagr
I'm a little sad too; I enjoyed watching him play and respected his willingness to stick up for teammates.
Overall, I'm happy for him, though; can't blame him for wanting to make some money on what is probably his only shot at a decently big contract. I think it's safe to say that every single person on this board would do exactly what Prust did (i.e. go for the biggest contract) if they were in his position.
Prust played his ass off, put his body on the line night after night, and I don't see why anyone should begrudge him taking the chance to cash in. That said, I'm glad the Rangers didn't pay $2.5 M per for him.
