The Flyers undoubtedly had their eyes on the Stanley Cup when bringing Chris Pronger to Philadelphia before the 2009-10 season.
If Pronger's current head injuries spell out the deterioration and end of his career, the Flyers will not have spent their assets well.
Even if the Flyers manage to win a Stanley Cup without Pronger, having him in the press box means they did not get what they wanted out of the 2009 draft day trade.
Philadelphia gave Anaheim Joffrey Lupul, Luca Sbisa and two first-round picks for Pronger.
Two first-round picks are definitely more valuable than someone who can no longer play.
