i doubt it. seriously doubt it. if they do any type of rebuilding, its gonna be around the defensive core and pronger's being nominated for the norris this year despite having a really bad plus/minus proves that he's still tops among the d-men in the league. you don't get rid of a best-at-his-position type player unless the team is in financial crisis, and with lowry's pocket book, we aren't.
These so called rumors dont even exist outside of Toronto. Somehow the media in Toronto has decided to conveniently ignore all of the reports out of St. Louis, which is where Pronger plays BTW, that the Blues are going to qualify him and that they plan on building their franchise around him.
as a leafs fan i would so hope so.......i dont think anyone would take demitra or keith unless st.louis ate some salary.....overpaid
NO. Larry Pleau, the Gm of the Blues(and JFJ's former teacher) has said that the Blues will qualify Pronger even if a long term deal can't be reached(and supposedly Pleau and Pronger are already attempting to get a long term deal in place to avoid that). PRONGER HIMSELF has said that he wants to stay in St. Louis. Pronger's FAMILY is from St. Louis(his wife and kids, not his parents) and doesn't want to leave. NOBODY with any credibility should even THINK that Pronger would become available. He is the cornerstone of the Blues. PERIOD. NOTHING is going to change that and there is no way Pleau will trade the cornerstone of the team.
Now will you Leaf fans quit making up these rumors. IT got old a LONG time ago.
