Maybe End of Chris Pronger's Career?

Well we havent had much Pronger talk, but at the carnival his wife is there. Not good news.

Quote:
Lauren Pronger on Chris' struggles: "He's not himself, and it's not in a good way."
Quote:
C. Pronger has not reached out to Primeau yet but plans to, according to Dman's wife, who said there are "a lot of parallels" between two.
- Sam Car

He seems way to down to be just out for the season. He barely shows up to his teammates, and honestly seems depressed. I can only think of Pronger not playing hockey anymore as one of the options. The whole Pronger thing has been kept on the down low, but I felt these quotes were interesting.

He was planning to go to the Wives' Fashion Show as well, but didn't go.


He was at practice one day though, either last week or just before that.

Concussions are no joke, especially at the level hes at. He will be lucky just too live a normal life again. Take care of yourself Chris and screw hockey, your health and family come first

Not to sound over the top or out of line but given the recent string of NHL suicides and depression in tough guys if he is showing signs of depression it shouldn't be taken lightly.

Really this is just to sad. I wish him nothing but the best and hope that he recovers enough to at least enjoy life. But back to hockey, like we have discussed before. I feel we have seen the last of Chris playing for the Flyers. And that just really sucks.

Primeau went on to do other things like coaching local teams and stuff.

There is a life to be had post-concussions. It just takes a while, and from what I understand, it's never really the same.

I wish the best for Pronger. He and Forsberg were my two favorite players growing up, so for them both to eventually make it to the Flyers was incredible even if only for a short time.

This is really bad news, he have had a great career, lets hope it doesnt end like this.

So many star players out this year, it's scary!

I've come to terms with him not playing for us again. If he does it'd be a huge bonus. He'll never be the same though, he's far better off just staying on LTIR. The team wins, he wins, everyone wins.

This is so sad. Even as a Devils fan who hated my team playing against Pronger, I've always loved the way the guy competed.

He's had an amazing career and I hope he retires for the sake of his health, similar to how Scott Stevens went out. He'll be missed and I know he'll miss the game, but his health and family needs to come first.

Crossing my fingers for the guy. Whether there is hockey in his future or not, let's just pray it's symptom free.

I agree. I think they should focus on trying to sign Suter in the off season.

I doubt we will even see that. It's been 6 years since Keith Primeau retired due to concussions and he wasn't playing in the alumni game before the Winter Classic.

It's be pretty sick if he pulled a TO and came back for the SCF.

He looked like a pylon when he came back from his summer surgery, no way would he of use if he came back for the playoffs. And regardless, he needs to focus on having as normal a life as possible.

Such a sad ordeal for Chris, regardless how I feel about players when playing against the Flyers I never ever want to see anyone sustain injuries that could effect their lives after hockey, it's just a bummer about Chris he will be and obvious;y is missed on this team I just hope he recovers and can enjoy his life with his family

Damn. Sounds like it might be over for him. One of favorite players and a first ballot hall of famer, just wish he could have won a Cup in Philly.

I see Chris pretty often where I work (I work at the grocery store where he shops), when I saw him last week he looked awful.
His hair is long and pulled back into a ponytail, he hasn't shaved for awhile, and the look on his face is miserable.
He usually takes a moment to chat when I see him, he likes talking about going fishing....which I also enjoy in my spare time, when I saw him he just kept his earbuds in and kept his head down.
It's depressing seeing him look so dejected. I'm used to hearing some of his sarcastic remarks when others remark negatively about the team or the goalies.
I can remember seeing the same look on Darien Hatcher's face when the doctors told him his playing days were over.
It's very sad~

There's no "maybe" about it. Pronger's career IS over. This is something everyone should have started to come to grips with as soon as the severe post-concussion syndrome/season over announcement was made.
