legitimately name me one player in the history of the NHL with a statement of how they are more of a ****** than pronger...

can't think of one? that's what i thought.

that's why most of us care if pronger wins the conn smythe, and the cup for that matter. he is a prick of epic proportions. i wish that the sens hadn't s*** the bed and beat the ducks when they won the cup. pronger would be pushing 40 with no cup.




Claude Lemeiux... oh, I don't know... for pile driving Drapers face into the dasher and then leaving it to his team to handle his business. For starters.

Corey Perry... seriously, you can't even dispute this.



I could go on...

Posted Image So So true... I am sure there are way more than Pronger as well. It could very well be said that every player on the late 90's Avalanche were mastering the art of ****** baggery.

Chicago is a team full of Prongers as far as Wings fans should be concerned. Wishing they'd win a Cup is like cheering for the Avalanche!

It'll take Pronger quite a bit more than a Conn Smythe to rival Norris Nick Lidstrom.

Curious...How many cups was Pronger wearing a "C" for (he's been a captain, but leading team to victory?)? Times won as "A"?

Lidstrom (by far) leads Pronger in career stats, with Pronger having 1 less year in the League.

Differences in career stats:
308 Less Games Played (minus 82 to see the difference lost by Pronger's suspensions and injuries during career)
85 Less Goals
300 Less Assists
385 Less Points
-256 +/- difference
42 PPG
140 PPA


Lidstrom also has an immeasurable lead over Pronger in class and honor. Unlike Pronger, Lidstrom has accomplished everything in his amazing career without ever once playing dirty hockey.

some stupid people has said that pronger is better than lidstrom alltime just because he has a good playoffs. I would hate to see the conn smythe go to him. It must go to chicago and toews!


Posting this on a Red Wings forum is blasphemy.

I'm sure I'm not alone in hating Pronger slightly less now that he's no longer with a rival team.

I'd rather see him win a cup with Philly than with Anaheim or St. Louis or Edmonton.

Lidstrom has 6 Norris trophies, 4 Stanley Cups and a Conn Smythe.

Pronger has 1 Norris trophy and 1 Stanley Cup.

There's no comparison.



Career wise there is no comparison. This year there is. chris Pronger is a better Dman than Nick Lidstrom is today. No doubt Nick will retire as the better of the two, and by a wide margin at that - but Pronger is a better player right now than Lids. Yes I know it sucks, but it's the truth.
"It was pretty interesting," said Detroit coach Mike Babcock. "We had May in exhibition for a couple of games and no one gets hacked or whacked. When we don't have him, we get run. We don't have a team that twists off helmets at stoppages. You get tired of seeing it all the time. It's just nice when you get someone to look after that stuff."

You guys are all saying what I said a few days ago, and I got attacked for it by some of the dumb Hawks lovers on this site.

It's good to see that LGW is back to being a Wings friendly site. No more Hawks obsession. They're our freaking rivals for crying out loud, and their entire fanbase hates the Wings and always roots "Red Wings Suck".

I'm supposed to cheer for them in the Finals just because of one gap-toothed idiot being on the other team? I don't think so.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

The Conn Smythe doesnt have to go to a player on the team that wins the Stanley Cup. Pronger could just as easily win it even if the Flyers lose. That makes this post ignorant and unnecessary.

I'd limit it to Pronger being a better player than Lids this season. Lidstrom had a slow start, and Pronger for some reason is a beast when he gets traded to a new team.

Next year who knows what'll happen.

And the guy plays on the edge, a lot of times over it, and the puck stealing thing is lame, but I still would've loved to have Pronger on the Wings. Great defenseman, smart hockey player, and how could you not love having one of the biggest villains in all the league on your blueline?

Part of the Wings problem the last couple seasons has been the free passes they give to opposing players around the Wings crease. Pronger would've changed that.
