We knew Chris Pronger wasn’t doing so well. When he skipped a charity fashion show, planned by him and his wife Lauren, his significant other informed the media that her husband was still having “good days and bad days.” It’s a sad reality for Pronger, who has rarely even been around the team of late (once since his concussion, I believe).
So, today, when the Flyers posed for their team picture, Pronger was there in spirit… or in the form of a Flyers front office member:
One of the #Flyers' VPs posed in team photo wearingPronger jersey. Pronger's face will apparently be superimposed in his body.

Creepy, actually. But sad. Sad, too.
Other news from Flyers practice: Reporters, um, report that Bryz looked sharped in drills. He even got all silly again when he said: "You going to put in newspaper that Bryzgalov is practicing?" Oh Bryz, Russian goaltender so lovable when he stop puck.
