Pronger to the Flyers

The Flyers are making a push for the Cup. The Flyers acquired defensemen Chris Pronger and Ryan Dingle from the Anaheim Ducks in exchange for Joffrey Lopul, Luca Sbisa, Two 1st round picks and a conditional 3rd rounder.

It was a huge price tag but Pronger is one of the top defenseman in the game and it will give the Flyers 2 defensive pairings to defend against the separate Crosby and Malkin lines. I’m all for it. I think the Flyers should be stacked next year and may be the biggest threat in the Eastern Conference to the Penguins. There is still a question mark at Goalie (isn’t there always?), but the defense in general just got a major upgrade.

Flyers do not believe Sbisa’s injury will void the deal.

  1. This move wreaks of Paul Coffey and Derian Hatcher. Nah, I like it. I think Pronger has more left in the tank than those guys did when the Flyers got them.
    How bout the Flyers getting called out for going out and partying too much? I'm sure Emery will help that image.
    Moment of silence for Billy Mays (Hayes). Local guy and didn't have scores of little boys over to his house for "sleepovers" as far as I know.
