Earlier today the Vancouver Canucks placed former Ranger Brandon Prust on waivers. (McKenzie)
Prust is in the final-year of the four-year deal he signed with Montreal, cap hit of $2.5 million, after leaving the Rangers after the 2012 season.
Larry Brooks tweets that the Rangers have "no intention" of putting in a claim for Prust. (Brooks)
Adam Rotter: To some degree the Rangers have been trying to replace Brandon Prust since he left for Montreal. Brandon Prust though isn't the same player he was for John Tortorella and the Rangers. He was a fan favorite, worked his butt off and helped forge the indentity of those Ranger teams, but with Tanner Glass as a cheaper option and someone Alain Vigneault is comfortable with, there is no room for Prust.
