Pronger was already starting to slow down 2 years ago when we aquired him. He was paired with Carle so that Carle could be the one to chase down the puck when the other team dumped it into the Flyers zone and Pronger could set up in front of the net. Pronger will be conserving his energies as much as possible all season long leaning on Carle to do most of the runnning. This isn't a bad thing, just noting that WE won't be seeing the "old Pronger" that was all over the ice. He's older and has to play smarter now and I'm fine with that.


We could just trade Hartnell to the Preds for Suter and then Pronger wouldn't have to do much of anything other than in the ofensive zone.
