Please don't say that he'll retire. The cap will kind of hurt with the full cap hit there .

Can't the Flyers buy him out? Wasn't that part of the new CBA?

Can't buy out injured players.

He's a 35+ contract. He can't have an amnesty buyout.

If he retires he screws himself out of free money and screws the flyers out of cap space. It just doesnt make sense.

I doubt it is a retirement announcement. My guess is that the conference for something of that magnitude would be more formal and certainly have been leaked.

Panaccio, Miller, Carchidi et al. seem to have posted at the same time which means this was a last minute venture.

I don't think he'll retire if it hurts the team...not like he actually has to do anything or stay in Philly and he gets payed. Maybe he's just giving a progress update?

Just got a text from a source. Chris Pronger "likely" to announce his retirement today. He is at Voorhees.
Intern for the Daily News. Take it for what it's worth.

Like MSE said, it would have probably leaked big time if he was announcing his retirement.

I don't get why he would though. It doesn't benefit him or the Flyers.

Yeah, I'm not sure why he would either. What else could it be though?

Would love to see him troll everyone and announce that he's coming back for a playoff push.

This is probably just going to be a status update about hows hes still not well enough to get back, blah blah.

If he does retire, it doesnt really help us (or him), but were not really in his shoes...so

Pronger will be speaking about the interview he gave yesterday, I think. I hope he isn't announcing his retirement. That would screw the Flyers over, unless some agreement has been made considering the circumstances, which I highly doubt.

Yes it is expected to be aired live on TV and the web.

Would be very surprised if Pronger announced his retirement, unless the NHL amended their amnesty buy-out conditions (highly unlikely).

Hopefully just a status update on how he is feeling better in every day life but nowhere near playing hockey again.

At the end of the season let him skate in an informal practice, get him medical clearance, and buy him out. Shouldn't be a problem - if Lindros could be cleared to play after his numerous concussions this can only be a formality for Pronger.

That is weird that he would retire. I mean I get it that he may never play again, but that is a lot of money to leave on the table and it hurts the Flyers. Maybe he has a job offer or something to work front office and he doesn't want to miss out on that opportunity.

Really? I don't remember seeing that. Not saying you're wrong, I just don't remember that.
