This is getting a lot of love for some reason, but I disagree. You don't break up a good line to fix a bad line, and in this case you're doing it twice, since the DD line is now getting hot.
The DD line got ''hot'' with Eller on it.
The Gally line is hot. But Prust is not contributing to that, he contributes to them not getting their ass kicked.
Edit for the nancys out there: Prust brings good energy, puck retrieval, toughness, defensive awareness, average offensive instinct to this line. But some other players on this team would be much better fit on this line.
It's crazy the number of times that he went in alone, dumped the puck and got it back himself only to pass it back to one of the young guys. He's definitely not a token tough guy...
In the last two games he has started to fall a little behind the Gallys, but that only tells you how good the Gallys have been, and that's why I wouldn't mind seeing them take more shifts with another skill guy.
But Prust is no plug, he looks much better on that line than I expected. He's a very solid utility guy, even more so than Moen.
Honestly, imo inconsistency is Eller's middle name. He's always done this where he doesn't get a point for 5 games then gets a handful in a row, never this bad out of the gate though. Therrien was right about him not giving a full effort, and I was happy to see him get 3 pts last game. Hopefully it continues...
btw to anyone who says Prust is doing nothing on his line, you need to actually watch the games.
