Yeah, I understand that, but there are other alternatives for the 2nd PP unit.
I dont know, before we got Bondra and after we lost him, our point men on the PP would be Pothier and Phillips (not too impressive) if Chara was infron of the net, IMO we could better use him on the point.
I'd say thats false because Chara can and has controlled games before. Particularly in the offensive zone when he pinches in...you can't stop him.
Hmmm..not to me but i guess it's what you like.I just think Pronger's all around game is better than Chara's a little bit.Better skater,nice positioning,better all around pp guy imo,better outlet passer and of course he's huge also.Sure,no-one can handle big z when he comes to the net but that's just one aspect.I think anyone could say Chara's just as good or better i guess but not me.I find when Pronger's on his game he controls the flow of the game better than" z".When Prongers in the zone the coaches cringe when he has to go off the ice to rest,he's that important and good.First d man since number 4# to win a hart.Granted,it was a dom perignon type of year but he's just great and had a dandy year last year too.He's my pick.
Without salary in consideration, Pronger easily for me. With salary, it would be a hard choice and would be based on the rest of my team. Let's not forget that both have had injury problems in the past also.
