The more i think about it the more I believe that Carle isnt coming back.


I think Homer is hoping Pronger comes back and sets up something like this.

Pronger Gus

Coburn Mez

Kimmo Bourdon

If you look at some of our upcoming RFA's, and jagr its going to a tight cap per usual.

I don't think Homer believes that. I'm pretty sure Homer knows the chances of Pronger ever coming back are very, very slim

Hope can be a dangerous thing, especially when it's predicated on something fragile and unknown. Homer would be wise to prepare as if Pronger will never play hockey again, and I guarantee that's precisely what he's doing.

Exactly. You plan for what you know, not what you hope.

if we are hedgeing our bets that Prongs returns and is as good as he ever was, that is a dangerous plan to say the least..

even if by some miracle he returns next season, will he ever be the same ??

we are talking about a older player returning from what is basicly a career ending injury..

hes no spring chicken you know.

I'm not sure if you were adding onto what I said, or refuting me...but I was implying exactly what you said.
