Pronger was available because Anaheim was getting bent over by the cap, and everyone knew it. The two available guys were Jay-Bo and Pronger, and we went hard in for Pronger (who apparently we almost dealt for at the deadline as well). It didn't really come out of thin air... Jay-Bo seemed like the more "obvious" choice, but Pronger was going to be moved somewhere.
