Further evidence that karma does, in fact, exist.

I feel no pity for this guy.

(and in saying that, I'm pretty sure I've got some uber negative karma coming my way now..doh)

Yeah it'll be a killer for them when he retires due to injury and his cap hit remains because of the 35+ rule.. Sounds good to me :cheers:

"Jay Pandolfo's last game at Boston University was against the Wolverines," Madden said. "My job was to cover his line. Jay had scored something like 30 goals in 30 games that season. And that was his 31st game. Guess what happened?"

"We always joke about it now," Madden said. "Jay tells me: 'You shut me down that game and you've been shutting me down ever since. The only problem is, now you're playing with me. ' "

I believe the 35+ rule stays in effect even if the player retires.. So technically you could screw over a team on purpose by signing and then retiring.. It feels like a while since we had Rolston on the team and had to discuss this rule :giggle:

If Pronger has injury it doesn't count technically, they can go into LTIR.

Not on LTIR, but if he does have to retire early, that'd screw the Flyers. And I don't think they'll let him stay on LTIR for multiple years before someone calls shenanigans.

Putting the contract/cap situation aside, the Flyers are nowhere near as good of a team without Pronger as they are with him in their lineup. He brings toughness that they don't have anywhere else on their D, and they are much easier to play against for teams like the Devils (he always seems to own us, and easily shuts down Parise) without him in the lineup. From a competitive standpoint, this is good news for the Devils.
