Singlehandedly? Uhhhhhhhm. Okay. Maybe I exaggerated a bit. But saying Pronger SINGLEHANDEDLY took the Flyers to the finals is a bit of a stretch. Pronger is going into a BIT of a decline IMO. Not saying he's disappeared into an abyss.
My reasoning for what I said (and please bear with me, I was in another time zone, tired as hell) is his game hasn't really matched the contract he's recently received. In my eyes (and I have been watching Pronger) he isn't the same guy we had here in Anaheim, and TO ME he simply doesn't look as good.
