(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.
Maybe Harley just doesn't like Joe Thornton.
I can tell you he's not my favorite player, either. He's a talent, that's undeniable, but I sure wouldn't make a Garth Butcher-type trade to get him on the Blues.
