Pronger: Wing-killer?

So I'm running the DET end of things again for the ANA/DET series over at James' CLS blog.  As its been mentioned a few times here lately, in comments and by Earl on actual posts, Chris Pronger can be seen as something of a Red Wing killer in the postseason.  I figured I'd take a bit of a look at this perception, and see if it was only something that has existed for the last 3 years, or if any trace of his Wing-killing ability was evident in his days in St. Louis, by doing a little bit of research.  Its somewhat limited statistical analysis, but hey, its a start.  

 

 

From my original post at CLS right here:

 

Chris Pronger is quite probably the most hated player in the NHL.  He's certainly at the top of the list for Detroit fans among active players, at least.  I'm not counting Claude Lemieux as active here,  as playing half a season in limited action hardly qualifies.  As Earl Sleek likes to remind us over at the Battle of California, Pronger has been very heavily involved in both playoff eliminations of the Red Wings since the lockout.  Given that Pronger will probably be the single biggest obstacle to the Red Wings this series, except for the man in the Anaheim net, I thought it would be interesting to see exactly what Pronger's total career performance has been against the Wings.  

 

CAREER PLAYOFF TOTAL VS DETROIT:

34GP 3G-21A-24P +4 82 SOG 78PIM (+15PIM, a suspension, and a torn ACL)

 

 

Don't forget to check out the CLS mini-blog for plenty of other thoughts on the Wings/Ducks series!  I'll be posting on the Detroit side, and Art and Dan from Anaheim Calling will be posting on the Anaheim side of things.  

This FanPost was posted by a fan, and it probably sucks and is dumb.
