It all comes down to rebuild vs. win-now for you guys.

The fact is, Pronger is the better d-man right now, and probably for the next few years. In fact, Pronger is probably one of, if not THE best all-around player in the league. I know, that sounds crazy, but as an OIler fan I'm willnig to admit we'd have been NOWHERE without him. It was crazy to watch the effect he had on the games. Trust me, he's dominant. Just read some of the more knowledgeable people otu there and they say the same thing. He's THAT good right now.

And yes, I understand Pitkanen is good already and will become great. THe question is, are the flyers in a rebuild stage or a win it now stage? I'd think with Forsberg maybe having 2 good years left in him, you should go for broke now. Trade for pronger, sacrifice a bit of youth for the cup.

You might need a better goalie than Esche though. Hopefully you go with Ninimaki or whatever his name is!
