Is Chris Pronger GM Material?

from Pierre LeBrun of ESPN,

Chris Pronger's final days on a player's contract are upon us. His last paycheck from the seven-year, $34.55 million deal he signed with the Philadelphia Flyers in 2009 goes through next month, after which he's free to begin the next chapter in his hockey life.

When exactly the Arizona Coyotes -- who acquired Pronger's contract via trade in 2015 -- will retire his number we don't know yet.

In all seriousness, though, the Hockey Hall of Famer -- who has not played an NHL game since 2011 -- enjoys working with the NHL's Department of Player Safety but his true desire at some point would be to run an NHL team.

"I'm very interested one day in becoming a GM," Pronger told ESPN.com. "I have a lot to learn, and need to put some work in. But down the road at some point, under the right circumstances, it's definitely something I'm interested in pursuing.''

He could be LTIR on Arizona’s roster, GM for some other team and maybe a scout for a third?
