He signed Pronger a 35 year old defenseman and surprise - his body broke down. The Flyers have down the same thing repeatedly with older defensman with the same result - Rathje, Hatcher etc.. The took a huge risk on Pronger and a huge cap hit and sacrificed 4 first round draft picks gambling that he would help them win a cup. It did not work out. If it did he would be celebrated, but in retrospect, as I said at the time of the trade, it was a bad trade.
