Taking The Heat

from Eric Francis of the Calgary Sun,
Indications are Lauren didn’t like living in the provincial capital, prompting Chris to make a trade request that became public knowledge just over a week ago. Locals took the news like a kick in the teeth, making the St. Louis socialite Public Enemy No. 1. “I spoke to her about a month before the regular season ended and I knew the backlash was going to happen, especially in Canada because they’re so passionate,” said Jessie (Craig Conroy's wife). “Lauren is such a sweet person. She’s taking the heat but she’s probably OK with that.” No one knows how Lauren or Chris feel about it as the couple has been in Mexico since the day Pronger’s agent confirmed the star defenceman wasn’t the one behind the trade demand. “I think they both knew the criticism was going to come and they were prepared for it,” said Jessie. “I’m sure it will blow over.” Not in Edmonton, it won’t. The it’s-not-you-it’s-me tone Pronger’s agent delivered will sink No. 44 (and his wife) lower than Mike Comrie on the popularity scale.
