Report- Chris Pronger May Be Joining The Florida Panthers Organization

via Darren Dreger tweets,

Sources say Chris Pronger is in discussions with the Florida Panthers about a potential management position...working with Dale Tallon.

Pronger's contract with the ACoyotes expired end of season. However, he has been working with the NHL's Department of Player safety.

Pronger has been waiting for right time/opportunity to join a club  + work with an experienced GM.  Tallon would be an excellent mentor.

Having watched Pronger serially attempt to injure opponents as a player, while his coaches/GMs sought to enable and excuse and explain each away by all manner of preposterously convoluted rationalizations, I can only assume the DoPS will be improved by his absence.

The NHL on-ice sure has been.

This is one of those things that could only happen in the NHL.  I can’t imagine this particular arrangement happening in MLB, NFL, or NBA.  It’s really shameful, honestly….

I am certain that it must be his extensive knowledge of “fizzix” that has the Panthers interested!
