The Tribune ran this:

Chicago Tribune link

The Philadelphia Flyers' star defenseman is hardly celebrating his portrayal Tuesday in a Chicago Tribune poster, though. It shows Pronger wearing a skirt beside a bold headline that declares, ``Chrissy Pronger. Looks like Tarzan, skates like Jane.''

``I don't read what you guys write, good or bad,'' Pronger said Tuesday. ``I really couldn't care, to be honest with you. I'm worried about playing the game.''


lighten up people, it's the internet!

Awesome. This is the prefect reply in response for his comments to the media during this series.

Edit: Bleh... The 100% part should have been skipped.

When the hawks lose they have no one to blame but the media!!! :lol:
I'm Patrick Roy, *****!!! Ready to bob my head, because I still can't shake seeing Mike Ricci naked in the locker room out of my head, or the nightmare the wings put me through in the playoffs!!! I do not wear underwear during the playoffs, and I have a wings jersey on under my uniform!!! I worship Terry Sawchuk!!!

I bet it was Hossa's idea for the press in Chicago to run that...

Bah, we've been making pics of Pronger like that for years. Just another case of Hawks fans wanting to be like us. :P

The Trib shouldn't have run it, period. While it might be funny, it belongs in the blogosphere and message boards, not in one of the largest newspapers in the country. Most Hawks fans I've talked to feel the same way, which was a big surprising to be honest.

So hate on but guess what, I feel like I can't miss,
I know they want me to fall, But ain't nothin' bigger than this, So just pass me the ball

Although hilarious, the Chicago media has been a downright joke these playoffs... from the billboard to this, it's almost like they're taunting the hockey gods...

All I have to say about Holland and our off-season:

Here in this one as well

Here in this one too

and finally

Holland is a damn good GM. period.

Do they really think they can out-troll Pronger? The man has a gift; don't try to beat him at his own game...

I can't believe they are sooooooooooof****** stupid running something like that. Now I know why beer commercials are so stupid, they're aimed at the the dumbest segment of society , the American male sports fan.......Women are having a fit about this and I don't blame them. Major newspaper????????:blush:

Pronger's going to eat someone tonight.

Never thought I'd cheer for the guy. Flyers in 7, double overtime. :hehe:

Stupid. The Tribune cannot post stuff like this AND be seen as a trusted unbiased mature news source.

I am as guilty of anyone of declaring that certain players look like or act like or skate like women and are therfor inferior - but I expect better out of a nationally circulated newspaper. If you have a problem with Pronger (or anyone else), have Eager (or anyone else) leave him in a bloody pile on the ice, the way it's always been done.
"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."
