Was Pronger fairly punished?
Sat, June 2, 2007

This was not a playoff game Chris Pronger will want to remember.

The Anaheim Ducks stalwart defenceman kicked a puck into his own net and failed to block a centering pass that led to another goal. And then there was the play in which Pronger raised the ire of the Senators, when he hit Dean McAmmond in the head and knocked the Ottawa forward woozy.

Was Pronger fairly punished for his hit on Dean McAmmond?

No I don't think he was. For the slap on the wrist that he gets each time,he will just keep doing it.One game is not enough. Hit him where it hurts, in the pocket book.I'm sure he is sitting back laughing at the one game off.

Yeah, Pronger was fairly punished. An interesting fact though, is that for each of his suspensions, the Ducks have won momentum changing games. He is important, but he is not everything to that team. Anahiem is a well balanced team.

Of course it was not a too severe punishment, in fact he should have been given two games off, He is a repeat offender. Unfortunately for Ottawa the Ducks are a better team when Pronger is not playing. I don't understand all the phoney praise for this man imminating from our wonderful sports people. Take a look at the ackward slow player he really is. The sens should go for him. But it comes down to the goalies and Ottawa's goalie is not good in spite of more of the phoney praise directed toward Ray. He basicly makes one guess move and throws himself on the ice and out of the play. You can tell by the way the ducks scored last night that they have figured that out.

He might have deserved a penalty but it should have been assessed by the Referee when it happened. The "Gods" in the big NHL house should not be playing politics. Let the refs do what they are paid to do - Referee the game.

These situations will continue to happen while ALL THE HOCKEY WORLD accepts this kind of play until someone gets hurt. They should change the rule or let it go. Nothing has changed here since Bertuzzi's hit which again was accepted by all until SOMEONE GOT HURT.

PS will the league suspend the Sen's captain now for a game? I doubt it as NOBODY WAS HURT.

ENOUGH! shut up, grow up and watch the game. Hits happen, sometime it gets dirty, it's the nature of the hundred year old sport. Hockey shouldn't be dominated by penalties and whiners. Go back to the felt padding and let them rock. I didn't enjoy playing hockey with people like you before and it's a laugh seeing what you have to say now..

Terry, Yah that makes sense then all of a sudden Mcammond is out for the whole series...even if he wasnt hurt at all..you better give your head a shake

Does Pronger deserve a one-game suspension? Yes. Does that goof Neil deserve a suspension as well for his five-step charge and blow to the head of Andy McDonald? No brainer. Yet, Pronger sits and goofball doesn't. What's wrong with this picture? I'm beginning to suspect something is rotten in Denmark here. Maybe it's time Sean O'Donnell invited goofball out back for a toe-to-toe, although I doubt Neil would accept. That amber streak running the length of goofball's spine is a dead giveaway of how brave that guy is.

VERY well said David D and George O'Leary.... I was thinking 2 games for Pronger. The proximity to his last dirty hit is what, 5 games? And morons like Jigger need to really get over the BS. Sounds like sour milk from another laffs fan. Loving the leafs is one thing, but being a blind moron is another.

Jigger, get a grip for cryin' out loud. OK, so you don't like the Sens. Fine. But get off the pot with calling them the "biggest choke team" ever. At least, over the past 10 years, they have provided hockey for their fans that the so-called Leaf Nation (now THERE'S a presumptuous self-applied label) would have died for. It's one thing to struggle in the playoffs for various reasons, and yes they have come up short numerous times, but quite another to be a lingering joke for four decades! All this sounds like, coming from those who keep applying the "choke" label, is a desperate wish that it continue because their worst nightmare would be an Ottawa cup win and a parde that Toronto has been planning and refining for 40 bloody years.
