Had to laugh at the person who said he likes the Pronger contract. That was one of Homer's biggest **** ups because he thought it wouldn't qualify as a +35. Wrong-o! We're stuck with that one for a long time and if he retires the cap hit implications will be huge.
35+ rule or not, they needed to lock up Pronger for some years to justify the trade. That they clearly didn't understand the rule (gave them the benefit of the doubt at the time) just is part of the evidence of the lack of attention to detail under Homer.
