Dear Diary, Chris Pronger is really good again

To be clear, I'm not asking your to source your own opinion, but when you say "he sure looked like he was going to be MVP" that seems to indicate more than just a personal opinion but rather a view of how the field was broadly perceived at the time (apologies if you did not mean for it to come off that way and I am reading more into it than should be there).
