Oh Pronger

from the Edmonton Journal,
Just when you thought it was safe to wash your lucky Oilers jersey and go golfing . -Chris Pronger sends a Dear Edmonton dispatch from Mexico, through his agent. -Note to Pronger: Hell hath no fury like an obsessed fan scorned. Make amends, soon. If you need motivation, go to oilfans.com. It's ugly, man. -When Chris Pronger was traded to Edmonton last summer he was one season away from being a free agent. If Edmonton wasn't to his liking -- or even if he was uncertain -- why sign a five-year contract? Oilers fans want to know. -Journal reader Pat Langner wants us to make Pronger lemonade out of Pronger lemons. "Instead of getting all gloomy over the Pronger situation, we should be celebrating the birth of a brand new, Edmonton-owned and operated, verb," Langner writes. The dictionary would list it this way, says Langner: pronger /prong-er/ v. a sudden, unexplained departure.
