Yes. Pronger had an enormously positive impact on the defensive pairings this year. He made Matt Carle look like a quality defenseman, and he allowed Kimmo and Coburn to avoid top line match-ups, plus the minutes he sucked up kept the 3rd pairing off the ice. Those players and picks we gave up will become some quality NHLers, but individually or combined I doubt they'll ever have the impact Pronger had, and will continue to have for several more seasons.
