Pronger To the Flyers.

It is now official. The Anaheim Ducks have traded defenceman Chris Pronger to the Philadelphia Flyers for Luca Sbisa, Joffrey Lupul and two first-round picks. Pronger spent three seasons with the Ducks, winning the Stanley Cup in 2006-07.

How Philadelphia fits Pronger underneath the cap is anyone's guess, but that almost guarantees the need to move more than Lupul to clear the space. With Briere almost impossible to move thanks to his high cap hit, Hartnell and possibly Simon Gagne seem to be the most logical options and we could see this happening as the draft progesses.

The Kaberle for Kessel trade also seems to be dead in the water. More to come...
