Pronger Still Recovering From Knee Surgery

from Frank Seravalli of the Philadelphia Daily News,

While you would not be able to tell on the stat sheet - Pronger’s plus/minus is 3 - he doesn’t quite look like the stalwart who guided the Flyers to the Stanley Cup finals last season. He acknowledged yesterday that his knee still isn’t at 100 percent.

“Did anyone say I was 100 percent?” Pronger asked. “I don’t think I’ve ever said I was 100 percent.”

Pronger, 36, missed the first two games of the season, nursing the injury, but was back for the Flyers’ home opener against Colorado.

Even though the situation is not ideal, Pronger is dealing with the injury as best he can. He was quick to acknowledge his game isn’t where he wants it to be at this point.

“I don’t know where it was supposed to be at this point,” Pronger said. “I think every day it’s getting a little bit better and a little bit stronger. I’m skating, trying to move around more and trying to do a little bit more.

“Some days, I need to take maintenance days. It feels better some days than others.”
