The reason I say that, is that any of the teams that would be interested weren't, as they signed UFA's instead of giving up any talent. The Rangers would be doing Edmonton a favor by giving up any young talent for Pronger, and since it's Kevin Lowe, and his connection with Sather, and the Rangers in general, we'd get Pronger for even cheaper than that probably.

If Maloney offered that for Pronger, Lowe would be a foot to not take it while he can. Because in a week or two, the market's going to be all dried up, and no one's going to want to give up any youth for him. Then, you have to worry about the cap.

I'm sure people will be interested in Pronger, but the longer he stays on the open market, the less his value becomes.
A foot? Nah, maybe just a big toe.

Well part of the price is the money in his contract part is the players you send back.

If in fact Lowe asked for Prucha and Staal... I say no

Plus Pronger has to WANT to be here.

well, one of the bloggers on hockeybuzz is reporting that Pronger is going to Anahiem and it will be announced soon. With Lupol as part of the deal...
