A worst-case scenario for an existing team going through an expansion draft is losing one useful player. The Florida Panthers—already a bad team—lost two last night. Today, they hired Hall of Famer Chris Pronger to join their front office, prompting the question, what exactly did the Panthers sell this guy on?
Associated Press photojournalist Mark J. Terrill is one of the best shooters working in sports today, and his shot from today’s All-Star Celebrity Shootout of Chris Pronger drilling Justin Bieber is amazing. Here’s the full frame:
Sports Illustrated has finally put online last month's cover story on Montreal defenseman P.K. Subban, written by Michael Farber. If you're a hockey fan, you'll want to read it. And if not, read it anyway—Subban is one of the best, most exciting, and most marketable young players hockey has to offer, and if the NHL…
The Star Tribune's chat with Bill Daly about the "cap recapture" penalty includes this eye-opening line: "Chris Pronger, who now works for the NHL even though he's still getting paid by the Philadelphia Flyers, has since told the league he wanted a four-year deal and the club wanted seven 'to lower the cap charge.'"

The Tribune may have insinuated it, when they poorly photoshopped Chris Pronger's torso onto a skirt. But someone in the Blackhawks locker room went whole hog, writing "Pronger Is Gay" on their whiteboard.
Chicago may have ended their ridiculous Stanley Cup drought on Philly's home ice, but apparently that's no reason to be magnanimous. Celebration or no celebration, there's always time to remind people that Chris Pronger is a bit of a jerk.
Because no one reads the newspaper, and SportsCenter's anchors are too perky for this early in the morning, Deadspin combs the best of the broadsheets and internets to bring you everything you need to know to start your day.

A season that many thought would be a promising turning point for the Philadelphia Flyers has devolved into a chaotic nightmare of failed playoff dreams. So obviously someone must be banging a teammate's wife, right?
After years of the NHL screwing fans, a few owners are now trying to screw the league. No one weeps for Gary Bettman, because turnabout is foul play.
Edmonton Oilers defenseman Chris Pronger has said he wants to be traded out of Edmonton, and his agent has been quoted as saying, "There is a very pressing issue that would make it nearly impossible for the Prongers to remain in Edmonton."
