Many have wondered aloud if Brandon Prust's play this season has made Sean Avery expendable. Prust does averything Sean used to.
He's physical, he grinds, he's excellent on the forecheck, he sticks up for teammates, and this season he's added a bit of offense to his game (27 pts through 75 games). Most importantly though, Prust doesn't take bad penalties, which has been Sean Avery's Achilles' Heel his entire career.
Now it seems Prust may be stealing one more page from the Sean Avery play-book...Gossip!
Yesterday's NY Post had a little article entitled "Heartbreaker," which essentially blew up Brandon's spot. Here's a highlight:
New York Rangers star Brandon Prust has been caught red-lipped. After we reported yesterday that he's been getting cozy with "Gossip Girl" star Michelle Trachtenberg, his beautiful girlfriend of a year, Marie-Pier Morin, who's now in Canada, burst into tears, our source said. "He makes out with other girls all the time, like all the time," said a different source who's seen him lock lips with women at Gold Bar and 1Oak.
Oh Brandon, this aint Calgary bro. If you make out with celebrities in NYC, your woman is going to find out about it.
Whatever, good for him, keep living the dream kido.
