I swear, Pronger is one of the few captains the Flyers has ever had that the media could not control or bring down.

Here is a full transcript of the interview:

http://www.courierpostonline.com/art...S04/130307005/

Quote:
VOORHEES — Former Flyers captain Chris Pronger met with the Philadelphia media Thursday for the first time since his 2011-12 season ending with concussion symptoms and an eye injury that still is an issue.

Here is the transcribe of his 28-minute interview, and below is another 10-minute interview that that Pronger gave afterward to Flyers beat writers.


"I want to thank the organization for all their support. It's been a tough 16, 17 months and they've been fantastic, from Mr. Snider to Homer and the medical staff and the coaching staff, teammates. It's been from that side of it a wonderful experience. Not great being hurt, but the way I've been treated by the staff, ownership, management has been fantastic. I can't speak enough about what that's meant to me and my family. The staff and the folks at UPMC med center in Pittsburgh that's been treatment over the last 16, 17 months, they've done a great job. Some good improvements from where I was, still have a lot of work ahead of me. With their support, it's never easy going through an experience like this and they've been king of above and beyond the call of duty at times when there were some dark day and certainly want to thank them. My agent, Pat Morris for all his help, just trying to put together different specialists, different people to go see. The support as you're kind of having some ups and downs going along through the various emotions that you feel and go through when you go through an experience like that. Thanks to him and all the people that have wished me well over the last 16 months, I appreciate every one of them. I kind of went dark there for a while.

Kind of surprised he doesn't watch this team all of the time.

Wonder if watching the game on TV gives him headaches.

At least he's feeling well enough to crack jokes with the media. However, while he seems to get batter, the fact that he cant do much is not exactly good news.


I think if Pronger was 30, i'd say they're would be a decent chance he comes back eventually (be it 1-2 years down the road), but at 38, its just too much of a stretch.

I haven't watched the PC or the interviews just yet, but especially today this hurts as hell.
I would pay serious money to see Pronger help this team just absolutely destroying the Penguins.

The guy played incredibly mean and vicious hockey, he never played for my team and I despised him, all that being said I'd be super happy if by some miracle he was able to play again, the game needs more players who can play at his level, a return looks very very unlikely but I'll still have hope that someone can be so far from a goal and fight through everything to achieve it.

Was watching his interview. So surreal.

Best of luck, Pronger. Get well and hope you are able to at least have a good life with no symptoms if hockey's out of the question.

I see him in this interview and I forget why I hated him. Totally different side of him.

He's done but is nice enough to not retire cause of the salary cap.

The guy is awesome. Love listening to him play with the media.

Don't know how nice he is, but he gets paid nearly 5 m a year not to retire.

I'm not to sure about the 35+ contracts but I'm pretty sure he gets paid no matter what he does at this point. He could retire and still make his salary. Someone please correct me if i'm wrong.

I think he still gets paid either way? Or am I wrong?
