You have got to be kidding me. Really.

Chris Pronger is a bit too much of a troll and obviously has a healthy sized ego.
My feeling as well, but at the same time he's the type to take over regardless of whether he has the C or not.

Does anyone know if management gave out the letters or was it the players?

Sounds like management.

Briere texted that it was a very good choice "by the organization."

Pronger said he was approached about it by Lavi and Paul.

"Ed Snider told us they want you to be captain."

"Ok."


With as big of a deal as the C seems to be for this organization, it definitely comes from Big Ed.

Is anyone really surprised? And frankly, who cares. I think Danny Briere says it the best in that terrible article that Tim Pannacio wrote:

Its funny, that is the one thing since I have been in Philly, it always seems like its a big issue, Briere said. Like its an important thing for the outside world those outside our dressing room.

Pronger Captain

..not surprising

Also, Leaf fan here... hate when we play you guys, but I'm going to be pretty interested to see how your team plays this year and the next couple years. Not sure what most flyers fans think about getting rid of two of your best players, but it seems like there's reason to be optimistic in the short and long term. Getting a bunch of good character guys in return and naming pronger captain will make a huge difference in the team's attitude and play, imo.

Real leaders don't need to have a letter on their jersey to know how to act and inspire others around them, which is why I've always been a huge fan of Danny B

obvious, solid move though I didn't think it really mattered who wears the "C" Pronger is going to be himself so is Roo, and Kimmo, it's a great leadership core though

Coming from a life long and devoted cross state fan with the Pens, being politely the evil entity stepping into the room...

...this is the smartest choice for your captain the organization could have made. With Richards traded IMO there is no one else to fill that vocal void often demanded by the fan base and management with ontop of the out going nature skill to flat out back is up.

I loathe every time pronged is on the ice versus Pitt, but I repsect his skill set to the core. Your org made the right choice for the "c" even though your new captain will drive me and all other pens fans insane.

I really wish they would have went with Timonen on this one. It would have give this season more of a "Let's win this for Kimmo" theme from the players.

Gotta say, as much as I liked Richards (he was my favorite player), Pronger is a much more imposing dude with that C on his jersey. I can't friggen wait for this season to start!
