Pronger has been skating and he certainly adds a physical presence of clearing the crease. All things being equal if you had to have one guy miss, Pronger or Carter, it would be Carter 10/10, he does not bring as much as what Pronger brings. Carter should feel lucky to have played in the presence of a guy who has paid his dues over so many years consistently.
You misunderstand what I said. I don't expect Pronger to come back, play 25 minutes, ES, PP and PK. It will be great to have him back but I'm not expecting him to play like he did last year when he is only taking wrist shots. I don't expect him on the PP at all unless they put him in front of the net. It's just asking too much of a guy who's missed a ton of time.
