BRANDON PRUST RUMORS

Rangers Sign Micheal Haley (UPDATE: Prust Goes to MTL)

#NYR Rangers have signed former #Isles tough guy Micheal Haley to two-year deal — Katie Strang (@KatieStrangESPN) July 1, 2012 I really like Haley's toughness and swagger, as did Isles fans, but this signing begs the question: How many tough guys do the Rangers need on the roster? Rupp, Bickel, Asham and now Haley are all signed to contracts.  GM Glen Sather needs...

Prust's Return to Rangers Unlikely

Despite the 2012 NHL Entry Draft taking place in Pittsburgh as we speak, the major news in the land of the New York Rangers has revolved around gritty winger Brandon Prust - an unrestricted free agent come July 1. Prust is a heart and soul player that has been loved by the franchise and the fans since day one when he was acquired from the Calgary Flames three years ago. For that...

Prust likely to test free agency

Per Larry Brooks, the gap between the Rangers and free agent Brandon Prust is a sizable one: Though sources stressed that lines of communication remain open and that it is conceivable that Prust could re-sign before July 1, it is believed the difference between the parties is significant — upward of $1 million over the life of a three-year contract.

What if Prust gets greedy?

Brandon Prust is another example of Glen Sather’s recent ability to pull off trade theft. A throw in that became a core player and a great example of the black and blue, never say die Rangers identity. To cap it off, his last contract signed with the Rangers, a two year 800k/year deal, was a bargain thus further cementing Prust as a quality addition to the Rangers club. With that...

Whether you agree with the suspension or not, Brandon Prust will not be playing in tonight’s Game 4 against the Devils. With the opportunity to build a two game lead, the Rangers will be without one of their warriors and top penalty killers. It’s a blow, but not a blow that can’t be overcome.

Prust's hit ignites drama

The Eastern Conference Final began last Monday night. The war of words commenced Sunday. John Tortorella ripped Devils coach Pete DeBoer's "head-hunting, plain and simple" comment about Brandon Prust's elbow to the back of Anton Volchenkov's head in the second period of the New York Rangers' 3-0 win in Game 3 at the Prudential Center Saturday afternoon...
