I like Niedermayer a lot more than Pronger. But make no mistake-Pronger WAS better than Niedermayer throughout their careers. 2007 was no different. it's because Pronger only played in 66 games.

Would you suggest that Patrice Bergeron was better than Crosby last year? After all he had more Hart votes than Crobsy did.
