Pronger, whose career ended with Flyers, goes into Hall of Fame on Monday

philly.com - Nov 10, 2015

WINNIPEG, Manitoba - Towering defenseman Chris Pronger played with the Flyers only for three years, but he made a lasting impression, steering the Flyers to the Stanley Cup Finals in his only full season with the team.

paul holmgren "He brought a tremendous presence to the rink - both defensively and offensively. He could defend. He could make plays like nobody, He was one of the best defensemen who ever played."
paul holmgren "Guys like that don't come around very often, You take the top defenseman out of anybody's lineup, you're going to miss him. It's unfortunate for Chris that his career ended the way it did. He certainly didn't want it to end. I'm pretty sure he'd be a pretty good player today if he was still playing because of his ability to see the game and the way he could handle the puck."

It's about fighting,
