If healthy Pronger is also in his prime than Pronger, no doubt. If Pronger was fully healthy as of today, I may lean more towards Chara, because of Pronger's lay off due to injury.

IMO, Pronger is better. Even if he doesn't play another game, he'll walk out having a better career than Chara.

Hart Trophy, Norris + being a big factor on three different teams making the Cup Finals and eventually winning once.

Pronger is at least par defensively with Chara in his prime and his offensive game is much better than Chara, especially in the playoffs.

I assumed we're talking right now, when healthy, not in their primes.

Agreed OP's question isn't clear but he listed career accomplishments so I'm assuming it's based on careers.

Those weren't up when I first posted. Seriously. It just said "Who's better?"

If we're talking about their respective peaks, then prime Pronger is significantly better than prime Chara. If we're talking about healthy current day incarnations of the two players, then Pronger is still better, but it's closer.

This is a "reaching" type of stat.

I always did like Pronger. I'll go with him, though if Chara keeps up his current level for another 2/3 year he could surpass him (though he won't have the international career Pronger did).

The only Dman of the last decade I would take over a healthy Pronger is Lids.
