Chris Pronger was estranged from his family for most of last season.
Despite this he was an absolute and complete professional all season and led the Oilers within a bounce or two of taking the Cup.
Could he have handled his departure better? Sure. A press conference would have done it. Even a simple "I loved it here but for personal reasons I have to move on." would have made a big difference.
I was disappointed that he chose to leave but family comes first and I cannot blame him for choosing his wife and children over playing for the Oilers.
What would you have had him do?
