I am going to be honest, I liked him when he played for New Jersey. He was one hell of a defenseman. It seems as ever since coming over to the Ducks his style of play changed and he turned into a scum bag and I lost respect for the guy. Anyways SEE YA LATER!


Also note; All the players I grew up watching are starting to fade out and it is kinda sad. I mean there is GREAT young talent and I do not mind watching all the young stars, but the memories of all the players I grew up watching, it kinda sucks.

Why all the hatred for one of the best & classiest defenseman of this past generation?

I'm surprised actually.

Great defensemen are playing well into their late 30's and early 40's nowadays. He can still be a factor in the league.
According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yeah I wont miss him. I'll never forget that turnaround elbow to Datsyuk's face in the playoffs a few years ago during the scrum at the end of the game.

He doesn't need to do it more than once. He did it, and I disrespect him for it, an opinion which I am entitled to. If he wants to fight, turn around and fight like a man... instead he blindly elbows a 4 time Lady Bing winnder. Coward.

So that 2007 Cup winning team isnt really looking so good anymore. No Pronger, Niedermayer, Beauchemin... at least they have Lubo Vishnovsky as their #1 defenceman :lol:


I'm actually kind of disappointed that the 07 Ducks are mostly gone. :( I hated them, but I loved to hate them.

Just cause you look like the gimp don't mean you play like the gimp!

I thought he still had a lot of hockey left.. I mean, he's "only" 36... But after that season during which he took half the year off, he never came back to his old self

Wasn't that the other Needaweiner or am I mis-remembering?

He is the only player to win every major North American and international championship in his career: the Memorial Cup, World Junior Championship gold, IIHF World Championship gold, Olympic gold medal (2), Stanley Cup (4) and the World Cup. He's a first ballot selection for the HHOF for sure.

I lost a lot of respect for him after he took the majority of a season off... to just rest.
That had to really rub that locker room in the wrong way. His hemming and hawing forced some regretable moves on the chance he would be coming back and I bet the Ducks are really wishing right now they had held Pronger over Niedermayer.

His elbow on Datsyuk was something you would expect from a player like Matt Cooke - I don't think that is bebing overplayed at all; that's the type of cheapshot a lot of horrendous injuries have resulted from... and on the perrenial Lady Byng winner!
Red Kelly #4 and Larry Aurie #6 belong in the rafters!!!
