I think its going to cost more than your talking about so far, though.
One thing I love about this organization is that they will do ANYTHING to win.
The Lindros mega-deal is proof. Did it work out? Unfortuneatly not, but they will make the moves they see as important.
Pronger is 34, so he won't command as much as you might think, but Knuble, Lupul, Jones, JVR, and picks would PROBABLY catch Anaheims interest. That being said, I FULLY REALIZE he will command a huge return, and I know at least one 1st rounder will belong to Anaheim if they trade Pronger.
Frankly, I'd love Lupul and Jones salary off the Flyers, while I like Lupul, he will be overpaid next year.
