EDIT - What Paul said
Pronger could have gone many other places, but he wanted to come to Anaheim and win a championship. What we gave Fedorov, is exactly what you have to give for a player of that caliber in almost any market. I think this stuff about being hard to sign Free agents is off base. Winning always makes things easier, in the end it comes down to money 90% of the time, and the ducks need to stop dumpster diving and pay for some better talent
