Can Pronger officially take over that kind of role while he is under contract as a player? Also, I don't think he's that tied into staying around Philadelphia as his roots seem to be grounded in St. Louis.
I believe his wife is from St. Louis so I wouldn't be surprised if his roots are there to be close to her family.

I actually think captain elbows would make a great coach at some point in the future if he could get healthy enough to commit himself to the task. It's a real shame, not only for his playing career, but because I always thought Pronger would be one of those guys who you'd see around the game until he was like 70, whether it be as a coach, gm etc.

I wouldn't be opposed to bringing a guy like hatcher in, however hatcher was mostly successful in the 'clutch and grab' era if you will... Not sure how much he'd be able to add to a young defensemans game today, but I bet it'd still be more than kjell is...

I think a guy like Eric Desjardins would be a perfect option.
