At the beginning of the year, where galchenyuk and prust really racked up a lot of that +/-, they were the most sheltered line on the team. Remember how badly DD's line struggled out of the gate? Prust will be getting tougher minutes if he goes back to Eller's line, but he can handle his own.

Prust's +/- rating didn't took a beating in the games after DD finally unlocked. You sure about your data?

I never said that DD 'finally unlocked' after getting easier minutes. Definitely possible he did so while still playing tougher minutes. But galchenyuk's line was definitely the most sheltered line to start off the year.

Think about that for a second.

Its not about Prust being the scoring machine. Its about his linemates who are scoring goals.

Go back and look at the stats for Galchenyuk. Since Prust was injured, he had two games without a single shot. A talented player like Galchenyuk cannot score goals if he is not shooting. Prust creates space on the ice because of his physical play. Added to that, he is not a liability when he is on the ice like White can be.

We became one of the best teams in the East and Prust was a huge factor in that. He is single handedly the reason Galchenyuk is developing before our eyes. Prust allows it to happen.

What many are advocating is revising a winning formula that we have this season and revert back to the days of old (forgot last year already????) when our skilled lines never got a chance to produce since they were having to pick themselves off of the ice after getting smashed into the boards.

Yeah sure, that's why you brought up the goals he scored, yup... like the 1 or 2 points Galchenuyk got in the last 7 or 8 games before Prust got injured, good thing he was there to help the kid offensively...


huh... we manage to do well without him you know. Sure he's very useful but it's not like we'd be back to being a 15th place team without him next to Galchenuyk or something...

Funny how people tought we spent way too much Money on Prust.... but what he brings to the table is worth it.. and after the Clarkson contract .. Prust becomes a bargain because both brings pretty much the same thing.

u betcha....i remember seeing scouring capgeek for toughness like everyone was at that time and seeing that prust was going ot be a UFA at years end, thinking to myself god that would be nice...that would be the perfect addition...i didnt really think much about it afterwards cause i thought there was no way the rangers would let him go and then i come home in july to find out he signed with us...and could not believe it....it was like we just landed a nash or gaborik... i was so happy

Prust's uppercut on Cam Jansen the other night was one of CNN's top news stories today on their website under the headline "Hockey player lands huge upper cut" (I am paraphrasing because I can't remember the exact headline). They had a slow mo video of it.

Alright we just picked up Prust. Can't wait until he suits up and plays his first game for us.

Quickly became the heart and soul of the team. A fearless player who outworks opponents and can go toe to toe with almoat anyone every night.

Prust is hopefully an 'A' if Giontas leaving, and Gorges(I guess) is promoted.

LOL... strange how 14-16 months later the signing goes from overpayment/too much term by several Hab posters & the majority of non-Hab fans to sweetheart deal. Who isn't happy with salary & term now?

Why is Prust always fake-fighting with Chucky? Is it his way to show his love for him.

I knew I was happy for good reason when we initially signed him. Crucial piece to the team.

The 4 years unnerved me (and sadly he's still a ticking time bomb to break down at all times), but hey, at least we didn't go for Clarkson instead, right?

Probably so he doesn't get his face pounded if he has to drop the gloves.

This thread is a good example of why fans need to let GM's worry about their salary cap.

Leave the 'capology' to those more qualified to handle it
