Now the Habs have a heavy named Brandon and a heavy from Brandon(Whitey)Man.The season is going to be interesting to say the least and much easier to watch when our team isn't pushed around without retaliation.

It will be an interesting game against the booins, in pre-season. :D

Sounds good. As a "Crosby" can make everybody better, the right "heavy' can make everybody bigger.

They said that when Laraque came to town, but he simply wasn't "the right heavy." I like how you specified that.

I don't know much about Prust, but if he brings some energy and puts in the work, I'll be happy.

There was a lot of confusion and politics surrounding BGL and his role on the team. He's got a big heart and takes on too many causes. One he took on, was trying to convince Bettman that there still was a place for enforcers in the new NHL. Because he was a poster boy for "modern day" enforcers and had to play by the rules to show bettman it was possible, there were things he couldn't get away with, that another enforcer could. Bettman wanted enforcers to invite other players to a fight, instead of the old school way where you just grabbed a guy and started pounding. It was a cause he never should've took on. It killed his career and it also hurt the habs. His hands were basically tied, all of his own doing, still they were tied.

His role on the team was never confirmed either. No player can succeed when you have no idea what you're suppose to be doing. JM never believed in enforcers or tough guys, so being on a team where your coach doesn't believe you're needed, makes life very hard for a hockey player.

Love this signing , brings alot to the table solid PKer , chip in a few goals here and there , and drop the Mitts to stand up for his teamates when needed , great addition , my hope is to see him Drop Milan Lucic at centre Ice of the Bell centre....... ;)

another prust vs lucic fight, says prust is the winner but id vote for a draw... maybe slight edge prust because i hate the bruins lol.

It appears as though the referees stopped that one prematurely. Lucic didn't appear tired or defeated at all. I'd give the edge to Prust, but that fight wasn't finished.

I just rememberwhen Lucic owned Komisarek at centre ice in the garden , Komi was never the same player after that , soooo wanna see that happen to Lucic at centre ice in the Bell Centre , send a message , whole new place to play , we have been sorely physically dominated by the Bruins last few years since , looking forward to the tide turning B)

I'd like to see Marchand become the new center ice dot. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Ugh. I find it hard to get excited about Prust's fighting prowess. I really don't like fighting in hockey, and I think it should be abolished, which makes me a little apprehensive to be excited about the prospect of him fighting. I'm more excited for 12-14 minutes of solid, hard hitting play, and helping out Pleky and Moen on the PK. To me, that's the real value in this signing, Prust is a very good 4th liner.

Sometimes fighting is necessary since the league is still in the dark ages when it comes to penalties and suspensions. My biggest beef is when a player lays out an opponent with a good, clean hit and immediately has to watch his back for retaliation.

Couldn't agree more, can not stand that. Hitting makes hockey exciting, not fighting. I think Prust brings much more than his fists, it's just a presence he has that makes opposing teams play different, and gets more out of the players on his own team. He played junior under Hunter on quite an amazing junior team (2005) and he knows how to win, taking the Mem cup from Sid the kid
