This just in: Pronger still a big huge jerk.

I'd say it was karma, spiting Chris Pronger and his ugly smug face for having gotten to the Cup finals for the second year in a row, but doing it at the expense of his former Oilers team...but no, the truth is, it seems Pronger really is just a big huge douchebag. After last night's elbow to the head of McAmmond (who briefly lost consciousness before being helped off the ice and apparently "doesn't look promising" as of now), Pronger's been suspended once again. Seems the guy just really doesn't like game fours. I hope for the sake of Vermette's hair that the Sens capitalize on this absence more than my Wings did.

The article documenting his suspension also shed a little bit of light on the decision-making process:

"This one took a lot of thought," Colin Campbell, the NHL's executive vice-president and director of hockey operations, said at a news conference. "It wasn't an easy one. It didn't jump out at us right away."
Does this mean they spun the Wheel of Justice very slooooooowwwwwly? Or maybe played best out of five? The world may never know.

It's too bad we don't get to see his reaction (though I'm sure it just involves blaming the Canadian media again). I can only hope that maybe he'll pull a minor league baseball manager Phillip Wellman and throw a huge tantrum. Am I the only one who would pay to see Prongs go crazy, crawl up to the net on all fours, rip it from its posts and proceed to throw pucks like grenades?

While it is discomforting to know someone can be as big a jerk as Pronger, it's a small comfort that some things will always stay the same. You have to give it to the NHL, no one does arbitrary the way they do arbitrary.

...I'll have to admit, I just made sounds that were close to a laugh. I'm not sure if it actually was a LAUGH, but it was close. XD
