Prust is a utility player in the best way. He's basically the reason such a term was existed. He does a little bit of everything and fills whatever hole the team has, without excelling at one thing (compared to someone like Desharnais or Ryder with a clearly defined role)
He's an asset that makes things happen, but he's clearly not here to singlehandedly win games.
That is where you are wrong.
You look at a team sport and base effectiveness on the stat sheet.
Others look at a team sport and place a lot of value on intangibles.
Why do you think Eller has looked so well out there lately? Prust gives him room on the ice. Did you happen to notice when Armstrong took his place on that line at the end? Discombobulated.
You will miss Prust if he is out for any length of time. Because the Habs will miss what he brings to the TEAM.
Boston's schedule seems quite cut perfectly. 1 game every other day til the end the season, while they had a nice 2-3 games per week at the beginning. They'll have perfect rhythm to start off the playoffs. Again, just saying. #wwe.
