Pronger's last 4 seasons full seasons he had an average QOC Corsi of 0.62 and Ozone start of 52.03%. That is pretty damn easy minutes for a guy who is suppose to be at Stevens peak defensively. Stevens went out against the top players his entire career and out almost every defensive zone faceoff. Had Sabremetrics been introduced when he joined the Devils his career numbers would be off the charts.

Pronger's defensive peak is greatly overrated while his offensive peak maybe underrated during the dead puck era. Does that mean Pronger was a poor defensive defensmen? No, he is still top 10 of his era but Stevens was "the" shutdown defensmen of the 90's and early 00's.
