Ducks to Shop Chris Pronger?
On Hockey Central yesterday Nick Kypreos reported that the Ducks may look at trading defenseman Chris Pronger if they begin to fall out of playoff contention.
HTR believes that Pronger would make a great addition to many teams heading in to the playoffs despite his 6 million dollar plus contract size. Teams such as the Vancouver Canucks that have cap space would most likely over pay for his services as he is just the kind of rock solid player that they need.
If he does indeed become available HTR believes that there would be a line up of interested teams. It would be interesting to see if the Leafs (Brian Burks) would make a push to require him. It is well known that Burks thinks highly of Pronger and has worked hard to have him on his teams in the past.
