I guess I gave Wings fans too much credit. Pronger has been a major rival over the years, but from the replay and from McKenzie's twitter update, it seems pretty likely he either had an injury to his eye or a very close call. It sucks to see any player suffer an injury like that during a game.
jeebus people. It's not like Pronger has ended anyone's career like Bertuzzi.
So stepping on someone with your skate isn't an attempt to seriously injure someone?
One person made a comment to this affect, but I don't believe anyone else here said they were happy he was hurt, or that they hoped he lost an eye, or that his career was over. Your post would have been better suited if everyone had. He goes in the same pile for me as Corey Perry, Matt Cooke, and other douchebags, but that doesn't mean I find joy in his obvious pain, and I hope I can speak for others in that as well.
This piece of s*** deserves to be injured after trying to step on people with his skate and running people from behind into the boards. Don't forget his cheap attempt to injure Yzerman in the 2002 playoffs. He's attempted to injure many players in his career. What goes around comes around.
