Chris Pronger doesn't play in the NHL anymore.
Not since 2011 anyway.
In 2006, Chris Pronger requested a trade from Edmonton for "personal reasons."
Normally, this wouldn't have been a big deal, except Chris Pronger had led the Edmonton Oilers to Game 7 of the Stanley Cup Finals that same year; eventually losing to the Carolina Hurricanes.
Edmonton would go on to struggle for the next six seasons, losing a couple of draft lotteries on the way.
One wonders what might have been if Pronger had stayed in Edmonton and likely avoided his career-threatening eye injury (via National Post).
One could take the easy out and suggest the most likely hated player(s) in Edmonton are once again the Sedin twins, but that would just be copping out of the bigger picture.
Pronger could have helped Edmonton continue to attain glory with a mediocre team.
Alas, Oilers fans are left to wonder "what if?"
