i guess your right on zhitnik.
I think what he meant was why would Pronger sign with the Sabres even if (and it's a huge if) the Blues don't qualify him?

Buffalo is not a big market team, so expecting them to outbid for Pronger's services doesn't seem realistic... nor are they so far under their own budget restrictions that they can afford a high priced player like him.

I would think there are several teams that could outbid the Sabres for Pronger... and there are probably several teams that Pronger would rather play for - given his age and what he's accomplished, if he's even given relatively the same salary offer, why would he pick Buffalo over a contender?
