One thing I will complain about when we dealt Pronger is that it completely closed our cup window. We've been mediocre ever since and while we made out well asset wise, we also used up the final 4 years of Getzlaf and Perry's deals by icing a mediocre hockey team.
Now that Etem & Palmieri etc are emerging for us Getzlaf and Perry are in their final years and Selanne is another step closer to retirement.
I'm a fan of the return we received from Pronger but still not a fan of trading away such a quality blueliner.
Also you can't really claim we got Beauch in the Pronger deal. If you want to do that then the trade is essentially Pronger & Gardiner for Beauch (who could have been re-signed), Sbisa, Palmieri & Etem.
