It's sad to see a player like Pronger go. It's so rare to watch a player fully develop from spaz to one of the best players in the league. Hopefully, we can all watch Jackman become an all-time Blue great.
If Jackman can stay healthy... He's had so many problems. I hope his shoulder stays solid. Repetitive injuries like that bother me.
I have a horrible feeling he screws his shoulder up again this year.
Which is why you can never have too many defensemen prospects. I'm glad Pleau went defensive crazy with this trade, especially after trading Belle last year.
Getting Brewer and almost-ready prospects sure beats a high draft pick IMO.
Brewer will be fine back there...he's no Pronger, but he will be solid.
And I liked the write ups on the two prospects ready to crack NHL rosters.
Since trading Pronger was a given with the new team payroll structure, I like this trade.
Hopefully we got three pretty good players in exchange for one great one.
I guess we'll soon find out.
