Could The Maple Leafs Acquire Chris Pronger?

“Will Maple Leafs GM Brian Burke be reunited with Ducks D Chris Pronger? That’s the whisper this weekend. There’s a strong belief that if the Ducks fall out of playoff contention in the Western Conference, GM Bob Murray might move the former all-star defenceman. While the Leafs are trying to rebuild, it might make sense to bring in a seasoned blueliner like Pronger, especially if Tomas Kaberle is sent packing at the March 4 trade deadline.”

Let the debate begin folks. Bruce Garrioch has that gem in today’s Ottawa Sun. To me, it’s a move that makes litle sense especially given what we can imagine what it would take to get Pronger. Would you trade this year’s first to get him? Not I. He is 35 years old. Don’t get me wrong, I love Chris Pronger. Just not on the Maple Leafs right now…. Boy would Burke get roasted for trading away the future for a 35 year old(albeit a very good one)
