I would hope so...

Poor guys. It's literally all in for them, they have to make this season count. He should have at least played out this year, easier said than done for myself probably, but Kovy put them in a really, really bad situation..

Agreed. I would have happily signed Morrow at that price if the cap had permitted it.

Good deal for the Habs... And it should help keep the rivalry healthy.

Morrow is too slow to be really effective. I think Montreal is going to wish it was a one-year deal by season's end.

Funny how delusional Habs fans are thinking Prust and White are actually good fighters.

I'd say some B's fans views on Prust can be skewed since the only fights he's had against the Bruins have literally all been against Milan Lucic, who is out of Prust's class. That does speak to Prust's toughness, but he can't really show what he can do when Lucic is manhandling him.

Prust is a good fighter for his size though, did some good work in the WC before coming East. Not great punching power but he'll go with whoever he needs to. Very underrated as a hockey player too. Kills penalties well and can play defensively. Would have loved him on the B's before he signed in MTL.

I don't agree on White though. Every time I see him it's a lot of tough guy antics with non-fighters and ******** a brick when someone legit comes calling. The best he's even shown in a scrap was when he jumped Boychuk IMO. Those two guys square off and it's a draw at worst for JB (underrated as a fighter).

Zack Smith tuned White this year, McQuaid beat him last year, and White started that whole kerfluffle against Ottawa in the SCP with a disgusting slash (on Smith) and promptly got his **** pushed in by Cowen. If he's jumping the Tomas Fleischmann's of the world he's fine; otherwise he's nothing.

Ya, White is overrated as a fighter. He picks his spots like a champ, though.

Parros, Prust, Moen, White, if it weren't for the rest of that roster the Habs would be pretty stand up individuals.

Agree for the size thing but I can't agree with the White being a very good fighter side. Seems he gets a jump on guys most of the time before they know they're in a fight.

LOL White a good fighter? No all he does is grab someone wildly move around and juke and jive while throwing punches without aiming OR tie up and barely do anything.

Prust is an OK fighter but not great as some think.

Someone mentioned Moen?

When we play the Habs I would only be concerned with Prust and Parros.

It will probably be like this

Prust - Lucic - As usual
Parros - Thornton

Ryan White can't fight his way out of a paper bag.

Not just for their size either (at least in Prust's case). Guy was able to go toe to toe with Lucic and won't shy away. Have to give him his due.

That's what I was thinking. Maybe Hartnell got over Carter banging his wife and it's him.
