Good for Prout. Hopefully he will get the playing time and be in a system he needs to get his game on track.

Good for Prout to get a chance somewhere else as he sure as hell wasn't going to get it here.

You forgot his best moment as a Jacket. Thanks a lot for that, Dalton:

Most teams want mobile, puckmoving dmen these days. Having a guy who is defense-first on a pairing with a more offensive dman only works when that player can quickly get back to cover. That isn't Prout. There's far too many times Prout allowed players to get behind him in transition. His backward skating is so slow.

Prout seemed to panic when faced with quickly making breakout passes and that got worse if he was losing more and more confidence with the puck.

If he can simplify his game and focus on clearing people out of the crease and battling against the boards, then he can hopefully regain confidence with the puck.

If by "fitting into the Devils' system" people mean that he can add to their pile of garbage defenseman, yeah, he can do that. The only reason he'd get any playing time is because Greene is getting old as dirt and Severson can't do it all.

I remember this while game very clearly for some reason (Chaput scored his first NHL goal), but I specifically remember Wilson being a huge ass the whole game and was hoping Prout would beat his ass. He did.



Edit: Nevermind about Morin- not even close.

He looks at me in much the same way that I'd imagine he'd look at me if I'd just whipped it out, and says, "I would say I'm proud of you if you had done something more than very slowly work your way out of a situation that was 100% your doing. Since you didn't do that, and you've only managed to get back to where we should have been in the first place if you hadn't messed it up, you get nothing."

And unfortunately, a definition of "literally" has been added to the Oxford dictionary that basically means the opposite of literally. That was a sad day for me.

Except I used it in its appropriate manner and circumstance. Literally.

That's the perfect Jarmo analogy. Before anyone tells you what an ass your father was (at 15 you were probably thinking that anyway), I'll just say it sounds like he prepared you well for life.

My reports from Detroit fans are that Quincey is very underwhelming. If he pushes Murray to the pressbox, I'll be happy. My guess is he's the 7th guy around for injuries and won't play unless injuries happen.

It's no shock I like tough players like Prout, would have liked to have him clear the net on the OT goal last night, Savard is usually good at that, that was shameful...oh well, wish him the best and hope he gets playing time.

I would have liked to get Ott for 2 6th round picks. One of the top faceoff men and stirs up anger in the other teams.

David Cross must have had a field day on that one (check out his Ricky Henderson bit).

Just temporary, extra bandwidth for presumed increased use at the trade deadline.

Sounds like the NJ people hate the trade, as Quincey is a legit bottom pair NHL'er. They think this was a favor the NJ GM did for Jarmo.

Question: What happened with Prout? I remember people were quite positive on him a few years ago, that he was one of our better dmen. Seem to remember people rating him higher than Savard, who has blossomed into a strong top 4 dman.

Yep, my favorite Dalton Prout moment.....That aside, I am glad to see his contract off the books for next year. To me that - while taking on no dollars for next year - is best part of this trade.

No clue. He was an absolute beast in the lockout year. Was a shutdown guy and skated with confidence. He wasn't perfect but for a rookie Dman he looked very promising. Since then, he's been a penalty machine, handles the puck like a grenade, and slow minded and footed. Maybe he was just better suited in the Western Conference.

One of the things I always loved about Howson was that even when he made a bad move, he recovered from such moves admirably. Indeed, I frequently pointed to that as one of his greatest strengths.

Jarmo's starting to do the same thing, and it gives me much hope for the future. To the point that I'm starting to think of him as the Drunken Master of hockey GMing - it looks crazy, it feels crazy, it shouldn't possibly work, you KNOW it's going to turn out bad, but somehow it works out and you'd swear it was deliberately planned that way.
