I don't think he would say screw you to the Flyers right now since we will be paying his full salary until he contract runs out. I heard that Pronger has to show up to main camp and take a physical, and likely he won't pass. The Flyers then will put him on LTIR until he is physically able to play the game again. He doesn't need to be there either, like he wasn't for the majority of his time he was out last year.
One thing about Pronger is he is obviously a bad ass competitor. He has shown he has the fight to do anything for his team to help them win, I am sure he is still has the fight left in him to play the game of hockey. I am still optimistic he makes some sort of attempt to come back and play. He is someone I would not count out till the fat lady sings.
