In Topic: This Chris Pronger thing

it is expressly forbidden in the CBA  that a player should be employed by a team and work for the league at the same time.

I'm confused. 


It sounds like you're saying Flyers are fine to keep him on the payroll if he chooses not to retire - I agree.


If he's never playing hockey again, a condition presumably covered on the LTIR  -- then it is also fine is he takes this NHL job. 


What does "expressly forbidden to be employed by an NHL team and work for the league" mean?


Does LTIR not qualify as employment?  Or does "work for the league" not qualify is being employed by the league which Pronger IS.


Which position not defined as employment? 


Just so I understand - how are these two positions not mutually exclusive?  I'm missing a part of the rules I think.

:unsure:  do we really want to go there?  :P


By today's standards - yeah, no -- he's not up to par.  If he IS, then the defensive defenceman isn't dead at all - people just refuse to give him credit for what he brings.

A real defensive defenceman gets points with assists.  He's productively clearing the puck not just defending brainlessly with blind dump and chase

I thought we were beyond that after year one -- that's kind of my point.  I dont think he understands what he changed and how to make it stick.

It's the space -- it's the ice.. he doesn't get space on ice!  He doesn't get how to make room for speed.  he just wants speed.


OHOOH... I so get it now.... I please please please someone get this and FIX IT NOW!!!!!


AWE sh!t... and Gomez actually ... oh piss he won't get it.. why can't Gomez being fvcking smart instead of so ... self-involved and stuff? Dude -- I dare you to mouth off about a vision.. not about you and your hard work but the vision of the ice and what needs to be happening instead of what you need to work on -- thenit sounds like you're fvcking up --- he can't do it.  for get it I'm barking up the wrong tree....  but I want to bark just to figure out how to ... Jagr won't either because it's too selfevident, you know?  Like to a forward 


oh nevermind  :P  :argh:   too much coffee today...
