Briere Says Pronger Will Not Play on Thursday

Danny Briere hopped on WGR550 in Buffalo this morning and said that he doesn't expect Chris Pronger to play on Thursday.

Is Pronger playing?


Obviously he's a big part of our team. I can't wait for him to come back in the lineup and I don't know when he's going to come back in the lineup, whether it's going to be this series or the next one, if we move on. But we can't use that as an excuse

When do you expect him to be back in the lineup, if you project him out at all against Buffalo?

Yeah, that's very possible. I just don't know, nobody knows when he's going to be ready. I don't expect him to start in the first game, to be there for the first game, but after that I don't know.


Of course, Briere did know that he was on local radio, and it's not too far-fetched to think that he was messing with those guys a bit. But when he was asked about "gamesmanship," he denied it and said he wants to be wrong. 

Audio after the jump. The Pronger stuff comes in around the 5:00 mark.

  1. This better be some bullshit……. Or I’m going to find him and make the big bastard play by force. Of course it will be through pleading, and/or promising my wife to him, but I’ll do it. I will. Hear that Pronger, get your ass back in there or else…

  3. Hey there! Quick question that’s entirely off topic. Do you know how to make your site mobile friendly? My site looks weird when browsing from my iphone 4. I’m trying to find a template or plugin that might be able to correct this issue. If you have any recommendations, please share. Cheers!
