I don't know, expecting Chris Pronger to be a literal Larry Robinson after his great 2000 season is kind of unreasonable in the first place, like taking PK Subban today and saying, "yep, nothing short of Denis Potvin will do."

In his late prime, Pronger was a cornerstone defenseman that led three different teams to the Stanley Cup finals, so he was doing some generatonal-esque things in the post lockout era.
