Whoa talk about overpayment . I love Prust, great guy. Solid player. But a 4th liner should not make that much...

Montreal would be a GREAT fit for Prust.

Smart move by Prust.

Thin market on the UFA front. Take advantage when you can.

Rangers are smart to hold firm at 1.8.

Yep. And I am not upset in the least ... he is trying to go for a good pay day and the market is thin. Love Prust. He is a great locker room guy and chemistry builder, however his price is a bit high and we need offensive firepower.

I'm not familiar with the tax situation in New York but $2.1 million in Montreal is not that much more than $1.8 million with another team in terms of after-tax money.

No contender can afford to pay him that much. If you're a team with an internal buget looking to reach the cap floor, you can. He gives you a great effort every night and is a good example for your young guys. But he doesn't do 2M+ worth type of work. His style of play doesn't lead me to believe he's going to get better with age, and we can't afford to pay guys for deeds already done. Good luck to him. I hope some western conference team takes him.

Depending on money and term I'd be quite happy to see him in blue and white. If only to see the backlash of "omgz more bottom 6 guys, FIRE BURKE". Added bonus is he's a good player for what he is.

Prust tweeted that. ^
Would he take a Talbot type deal ($1.8M for 3 yrs)? I would love to see him in orange and black.

We already offered him that. He wants 2.1 for 3 years. If someone offers him 1.8 M, he'll just resign with the Rangers.

I wonder how he would feel about a 4 year 1.75 deal, or a 5 year 1.5 million deal opposed to his 3 year deal he wants.

I agree. I could easily see him getting 2x3 in FA, and let's face it, he's fairly easily replaceable for the rangers.

As others have said, utility players like prust will only get 1 "big" contract during their whole career and need to knock it out of the park for themselves (and their families) when they get that chance.

Some team will overpay him for 3 or 4 years and then he will be a great pick up on a cheaper deal when it becomes all about winning again for him.

For a contender 1.75 or over it too much, but for a young team with piles of cap space 2.1 or 2.2 for 3-4 seasons wont be the difference between re-signing young players or not. A lot of teams could use hardwork/character on the bottom 6. CBJ, NYI. EDM, ANH etc... all could over pay a little bit for someone like Prust

I'd love him on Toronto but 2.1 is a bit steep for our team.

We offered 1.8. He gets a lot of time on a contending team. Will probably want more than 2.2 mil from the Isles, Leafs or similar teams.

I guess when you haven't made a ton (comparative to other NHLers) you have to take the money even if it means playing on a rebuilding team.

Three years is a long time for guy with his history of injuries. Hasn't he had multiple concussions and neck and jaw issues?

Yeah, can't blame him. Made like 850k until this year. Has to cash in now. Just find it a little odd though, he specifically commented after the year with something like it's not just about money, about the role and team you're on. Looks like he'll blatantly ignore what he said

I would give him 1.9 per from the Canucks. Exactly the type of player we need for our bottom 6.

If it's just a 2-3 year deal I think that could work out in the Jets cap situation. Even at 2.1 mil.
