The thought of Chris Pronger in the Orange and Black is starting to warm in the minds of blue-thirsty Philadelphians, who are starting to believe that the 6’6 war machine may be that one missing piece.
“I’d like to think so,” said Pronger, when asked if he is that missing link between the Flyers and a Stanley Cup. “That’s one of the reasons I was brought to Anaheim and it worked out. I’m looking forward to it.”
With a no-trade clause, Pronger knew he could potentially be moved at the draft. And according to him, the Flyers were one of the top teams on his list.
“There was a limited number of suitors to begin with with the price teams had to play,” he told TSN. ” Philly was one of the teams on the short list that’s for sure.”
Pronger is a unrestricted free agent at the end of the 2009-10 season. General Manager Paul Holmgren has told the media he has planned a sit down with Pronger and his agent to work out an extension.
