Canadiens Sign Prust.

Prust joins the Habs.

Various sources report the Montreal Canadiens have signed former Rangers forward Brandon Prust to a four-year, $10 million contract, or $2.5 million per season.

SPECTOR’S NOTE: The Canadiens certainly seem to be looking for grit with their signings today, but in this instance, they appear to be overpaying for it. Prust is a tough, physical forward, which the Canadiens certainly needed more of last season, but he’s coming off a two-year, $800K per season deal with the Rangers. He’s not worth what the Habs are paying.
