Pronger is a huge asset but the center piece of that team is their three great centers, all Flyers products. Datsyuk, Zetterberg, and Lidstrom. Toews, Kane and Keith. Malkin and Crosby.The Sedins and Kesler. All of the champions and top contenders in this league have homegrown stars, and obtain final/complementary pieces. We do it the other way around and it's become apparent to me that it's not working.
