More quotes from Pronger (source: Orange County Register)

On the trade and whether he’d know it would happen?

I knew there were a handful of teams that were talking to Bob [Murray]. Bob was excellent with me and my agent [Pat Morris] in kind of keeping us in the loop, telling us kind of how things were progressing.

The writing was pretty much on the wall. I had a pretty good straightforward talk with Bob about a week and a half prior to the draft. I gauged from that conversation that things weren’t going to be moving forward with the Ducks and I was most likely going to be traded. I started preparing myself after the season for what ultimately was going to happen. Fortunate enough that I was able to land in a good position with a good young team that’s got a lot of upside.

On whether the Ducks offered a contract extension?

There was nothing ever offered. Things never really got down to that. They obviously have their own issues that they’re trying to deal with and their own direction. They felt like this is the way for them to continue rebuilding and building for the future.
