He also overpaid for Pronger. It wasn't very wise to mortgage your future on an aging defenseman especially when you're a cap strapped team that needs these rookie contracts to remain competitive under the cap. I wasn't fond of the deal when it was made although I understood why he thought we were a Pronger away. Now looking where we sit currently that's a deal I wish they could have back. Then again there are several of them.
