Awful regular season and awful playoffs with an awful penalty to end our last chances in the playoffs. I just don't see why this guy gets so much love from the coaching staff and how they kept playing him over White during the whole post season. Injuries have clearly gotten the best of him and he hasn't been half the player he was since his first shoulder injury last season.

Guy showed the opposite of character all season long. Really gutless year for him.

Should have had shoulder surgery during the season. It was painfully obvious.

He played good last year, was awful all season and pretty much all post-season outside 3-4 games.

He probably should have taken the year off to heal. At his contract, I would move him if the Canadiens get a good offer.

He is kinda slowish but he is what he is 4th liner. He wasnt brought up to be the difference maker. He created some good things with the hit on stepan, he tried to turn around things. He isnt a bad fighter.

Prust is the least of our problems but for speed alone, would have played White.

He'll get surgery and likely come in halfway through next season. The man is stapled together right now.

His play reflected his health. Broken.

He is done, the habs always get these players too late, these type of guys break down at 30, we need to get them at a young age

He is useful.

He just needs to be healthy.

Good last year, stunk this year. I was hoping he would have had a 4 game suspension.

He neglected the shoulder surgery last summer, and he paid the price for it this season. Without a doubt he will get the surgery this summer, and will miss a few months of the season. Weise, White, and Moen (if they don't get traded) will soften the blow, so I wouldn't be too worried about it... at all really.

Prust is a warrior. Too much so for his own good. He tries to be there for his team, even if his play is detrimental to them.

I liked him last season. Not as much this year. I liked that he went after Kreider. But didn't like the late hit that he got suspended for. It just makes the Canadiens look bad. I didn't like how he played in the whole playoffs, he didn't seem to do much.

That's what I wanted to post and that's what I hope he does. He's good when healthy.

I wanted White in during the playoffs because he's much better than a broken down Prust.

Awful thread. Prust is a warrior, this is a typical reaction to a loss. Crucify the players in most recent memory, forget what they did for you along the way.

Transplant Prust's heart into Vanek and you have a hockey player.

Except Prust was bad all year, not just in this loss. Only a fool would say he wasn't consistently the worst player in our bottom 6.

Exactly. The people complaining about Prust are the same ones who would complain about us lacking toughness and a good fighter who doesn't get his lunch fed to him every fight. Prust is very well respected in the room as well.

Don't know what you were watching. Prust is consistently a sparkplug, making contact, changing momentum, working hard, regardless of his physical health. The fact that he brought it hard every night against former teammates and friends is not lost on me. He did everything he could do unlike some others.

I know I am on HFboards when the playoffs are over and Prust is getting raked and the excuse makers still want to chase Vanek on a contract.

Let's see what he looks like if/when he gets fixed up and healthy. He can be an asset like last year when his hustle and ability to play physical are at the forefront of his game. When he can't play physical and just becomes an agitator then the effect is cheapened and he's a net detriment.

Get him his surgery, Moen and White can still fill in to start the year, and we'll see how things look somewhere down the road. There's not really an evaluation beyond that to be made right now in his case IMHO.

He's fine as a 4th liner. Just probably shouldn't be put on the ice with 5 minutes left in a 1-0 Game 6 in the ECF.

Hopefully he can heal up.

Poor Prusty, when he signed here last year he was the best gritty forward the habs have had in a long time. The addition of Weiss and development of Bournival sort of made him stand out less this year. That and he has to be injured. He played his best hockey getting in on the forecheck throwing his weight around.

Rest up soldier we are going to need you next year.

You wonder how the heck will he be able to finish that contract....Damaged goods that will be sad to see go down again....At least we have Weise to compensate. And let's hope they'll play White more.
