Don't be messing with Pronger, he has proven to be one of the best in the NHL before his injury.
Trading away Richie was wrong, you don't trade the captain! Carter was like Briere only showed up in the post season if he could stay healthy, no loss there.
Let's not overlook, however, that Pronger was already showing big signs of wear and tear before the eye injury / concussion. He was slower, too, because of the knees and was certainly not playing at his high level. Pronger definitely would be helping the blue line right now, but it may not have been All-Star / future HoF calibre.
