Chris Pronger: Provided Hope

Chris Pronger had a short but tumultuous career with the Whalers. He was selected second overall in the 1993 draft, but after his participation in a brawl outside a Buffalo bar and an arrest on drunken driving charges in Ohio, management traded him to the St. Louis Blues for Brendan Shanahan. Pronger, currently on the Philadelphia Flyers, has enjoyed a long, successful career. Whalers fans will always remember him for his potential and volatility.AP PHOTO/MARCOS TOWNSEND
