Pronger shouldnt have to come back every year and pretend to try and come back if he truly can't just to help the team out
What's the alternative, doing away with the 35+ rule entirely. Then we are back to square one re: cap abuse.

You're also forgetting the part where Pronger gets paid to try to come back each year. It's not like he (or any other player) would be doing it solely out of fidelity to the organization.
