Kukla's Korner Hockey

from Sam Carchidi of the Philadelphia Inquirer,
Flyers defenseman Chris Pronger should have had a stirring retirement celebration before Thursday night's game against Pittsburgh, saluting a career that will undoubtedly put him into the Hall of Fame.
Instead, the charade continued....
Earlier Thursday, during a news conference at the Flyers' practice facility in Voorhees, Pronger talked about trying to make a return from post-concussion syndrome.
Pronger, 38, knows his career is done. So do Flyers officials. Heck, even Pronger's doctor, a concussion specialist from the University of Pittsburgh, said he has advised the defenseman to never play again because of "significant" medical vulnerabilities.
Yet, the charade continues because of the NHL's ludicrous cap rules.
Change the rules. Stop the charade.
