Total respect for Prust. Gives it 100% every shift. He's one of the pieces of the puzzle that makes this team what it is. I don't care if he doesn't score another goal all year.
On a funny note. I'm watching the 6pm news on CBS and the so called Sports reporter, don't know his name, is showing highlights from the game today. He showed Prusts goal and called him Proost. Good job. Really know your Hockey.
Yes. This is exactly the kind of player small market teams looking to reach the floor overpay for. I am not advocating going overboard on a deal but making a sensible deal before other teams have a chance to throw money at him would definitely be beneficial.
You gotta remember it's not entirely about the $$ amount for these guys. Obviously, if it's a significant raise he's going to take it but living in NYC with a lot of money is a great life. Playing on a great team as a player is a great life.
If i'm prust -- unless another teams offer is 20% higher than that of the NYR -- I'm staying here.
BUT - I'm not prust and I don't know his situation so ..
He'll stay a Ranger, though. Maybe something like 2 or 3 years for 2 mill per or so? I don't know.
I agree, but my point was that I don't think Prust is the kind of player that some other team is going to swoop in and drop loads () of cash on. He'll need to be overpaid severely to be drawn away, and I just don't see that happening.
