My comment is that, what happened to Pronger can happen to anybody. It wasn't an age thing, so basically its just ****** luck. If this happens to Giroux and he retires, everything is fine, but since Pronger was over 35 and this happens, Flyers are stuck.
Right. And the freak accident that happened to Pronger doesn't change the fact that teams shouldn't be signing 35+ players to long term deals in the first place.
I deride your truth handling abilities
