Chris Pronger, get over yourself.
No one is afraid of you and if you really want a fight I suggest you stay away from one with the Blackhawks.
In case you haven't heard, Pronger has taken the game puck from the first two games of the Stanley Cup Finals, which the Hawks have won.
Reportedly Chicago's fourth-line forward, Ben Eager, who scored the game winner in Game Two, wanted the puck. Chris Pronger admitted he threw it in the trash, "where it belongs." Both players exchanged words and received 10-minute misconduct penalties at the end of the game.
Pronger has a reputation for being the bad guy across the league and is not a very popular guy unless he is on your team, but isn't he taking the bad guy act a little too far?
All the Flyers players and coaches of course say it is no big deal, while many of the Hawks players are upset.
Even members of the media are giving their opinion. Current NBC analyst and former Blackhawk and Flyer Jeremy Roenick called the move "bushleague."
Also before Game Two Pronger waited to be the last player off the ice during warm ups and then preceded to skate over the Indian Head at center ice.
Now in the news is a report that an ad popped up on Craigslist today for a "Game Used" Stanley Cup puck from the Finals.
I don't really think it is Pronger behind this, but would it really surprise anyone if it was?
