Bad contract.

Taken in a vaccuum, I dont hate the contract ($2.5m for 4 years of a big, strong defensively-gifted player entering his prime) but didnt we just resign Travis Moen for similar money? I am not sure why we need both. We are starting to have a definite log-jam of lower-tier defensive wingers who can chip in 20-40 points in Prust, Armstrong, Moen, Bourque, etc. Its not a horrible problem to have but we do need to think about the money PK and Carey will command & that likely means we are getting farther and farther away from the help we desperately need (ie, top 4 defensmen)

Armstrong is in on a 1-year contract, and Bourque is not a "defensive winger".

We have two very good bottom-6 players: Prust and Moen. We need both because then we can have one on the ice at a time. One on the Eller line and one on the Leblanc line.

wait? the one guy i was continually saying was doing nothing positive in the playoffs and the reason the rangers were going to lose in the long run?

I just checked him out online, turns out he's only 5'11". I thought he was taller for some reason.

Some say he's 6'0, and others 5'11 or something around there. He's not small, but not big either, but it doesn't really matter since he's physical.

Welcome to the Bleu-Blanc-Rouge!

Contract on the high side, but price to pay for a player you want. Prust would've been welcome just about anywhere.

I have to wonder, with Armstrong and now Prust, does that mean someone is out of here or being sent down?

Maybe white will be sent down, LL or even Bourque if we can't trade him?

Can't possibly keep all these players.

Looks like Leblanc to me. I think it will benefit him to be back in Hamilton, he didn't seem at ease last season here witht he big club.

And this condradicts my point of moen & prust being the same type of player how exactly? I only named 4 bottom 6 wingers, we have about 4 others that could crack the lineup.

Bourque is not a "defensive winger"

He is extremely underrated defensively. He plays very well on the PK and could easily be a strong 2 way 3rd liner. Defensively he wasnt horrible for us (not as good as he was in Cow-town though) he was terrible offensively of course.

He may be average size but he plays big and that's what we need of him. Contract is a little on the high side but for a player like him I think he will be worth it.

we have the most taxes of any place in the nhl this contract in pay out to the player isn't a lot.

he is one of the players who spoke in the "If YOu can play" program to end homophobia in pro sports especially hockey. I went to the link and found that Carey Price was another. This was a pleasant surprise since I believe Price is quite religious, which is sometimes associated with homophobia. Welcome, Brandon

I don't get why all of you are worried about the term as I see : its just giving us less things to worry about each offseason. Prust and Moen are young, we have nothing to worry about.

Well they aren't that young, especially since guys who play that style tend to deteriorate but term always carries risk, with Moen I got it because I think if anything he's a better player than Prust but at least equal and you're getting him for a bit cheaper with the term, but the Prust contract feels like he gets terms and an inflated dollar amount.

I'm not freaking out but overpaying the bottom 6 is a dangerous trend.

Anyway, he's a useful player who can help on the PK and actually take a regular 4th line shift.
