Your presumptions are right, Pronger has had a lot of good seasons with the Blues in the past and in the NHL all together but with his injuries, cost, and age I don't see many more NHL games from him let alone seasons.
What baggage? He had one incident, almost a decade ago.
Perron is a professional who himself said that he understands and forgives Thornton. Plus with Joe on the Blues that keeps him from running over Perron again so that is a double plus. Seems like a win-win for David...unless Joe pulls a Jackman and runs David over in the playoffs.
(I mis-typed previously: I meant that you must not have wanted Pronger on the team. By that I meant when the Blues traded him for scraps)
You seem to want to make excuses for one player but not for another...I find this attitude to be really quite puzzling.
