That's the case with EVERY trade.

The Pronger deal, in essence, is a trade, a 2 team deal no different from any other normal 2 team deal except for the magnitude of the top player being dealt and the salary figures being exchanged.

Aren't those the normal factors that determine how a deal goes down?

Pronger could have went east the first time if someone was willing to give up what Edmonton gave up, which if you ask me, wasn't all too crazy.

How could he get to enjoy it a little too much? He was only there for one year.

Which brings me to a question I've asked a countless number of times since I first heard it as a rumor...

Why in the hell would Rutherford be pissed at his top prospect wanting to stay for his SOPHOMORE YEAR at college?

What rocks was that foo smokin'?
