I see it as a grizzled warrior who is not ready to admit that he is done. And that is a healthy thing, because it's a heck of a better mental approach than admitting defeat and meekly settling into retirement. I'm not saying that Pronger should actually step back onto an NHL ice surface as a player; just that I admire his seeming determination to do all that he can to be one again.

I'd think that Mrs. Pronger, though, would have some choice words about him putting his health at risk by trying to play again. And if she can bully him into leaving Edmonton (), she will keep him off the ice.

I'm looking forward to the retirement ceremony, where Pronger comes out to drop a ceremonial face-off, and instead elbows both captains unconscious.
