Ya, that had everything to do with Pronger , IMO. As he was handed a long term extention only the year before. Asides from that there will be a bias as a Nucks fan for him, as all teams fans have that for there players. They are similar players IMO, period.

On a serious note, I hate Kyper and his stupid players view bias from the lockout. He has some merit as far as Lou's contract goes, but it is not untouchable or tradeable. I do believe it hampers his value, which sucks for Nucks fans. In a non cap world I think it would be a whole different ballgame for you guys.
