08:27 AM ET 10.29 | Chris Pronger would likely trade his current situation for a promise of playing again, but he'll be well compensated. [Pronger] may never play again but he received a $1-million bonus last month and his first regular paycheque from the Philadelphia Flyers arrived halfway through October. Pronger, in fact, will be paid his full $7.2-million salary whether there's an NHL season or not. And he's not alone. Perhaps the only benefit of injury is that those deemed unable to play will be fully compensated throughout this NHL madness known as a lockout. ... Pronger, still suffering the affects of a concussion and unlikely to ever play again, has $19.2 million remaining on his Philadelphia contract.

Agreed. The gut is a certified meat bag , but i am pretty sure he would not deem himself fortunate at this point. Such a shock that the Toronto Sun printed this ;-)

Some people can't let go of past incidents. Their Pronger envy is in full bloom ;)

The tone of this article, not surprisingly from the Sun, is that Pronger somehow is lucky to be injured and receiving money during the lockout. I guess if a widow gets life insurance benefits after her husband is dead, she's lucky? Finacially secure, maybe. Lucky.............no way.

Yup...I'm sure that was his financial strategy all along.
