Should we call Chris Pronger 'The Puck Burglar'?

Jun 1, 2010, 12:30 PM EDT

grinningPronger.jpgAh, Chris Pronger. He’s just one of those players who can’t go long without upsetting someone. The latest controversy caused by the big defenseman came after he apparently snatched what would be the “game puck” after both Game 1 and Game 2.

This leaded to a heated (if silly) exchange with Chicago Blackhawks tough guy Ben Eager. Tim Panaccio of CSN Philly captured the story.

Where’s the puck, Pronger was asked.

“It’s in the garbage,” Pronger replied. “Where it belongs.”

You shot a towel at Eager when he complained?

“So what,” Pronger replied.

You’re collecting pucks now?

“Why not? What’s wrong? It’s sitting there. What else is gonna happen to it? It’s sitting there. Sure, why not. You got a problem with that?”

Are you gonna sell it on eBay?

“I don’t know. Apparently, it got him upset. So I guess it worked, didn’t it? It’s too bad. I guess little things amuse little minds.”

I have to admit, the brief hubbub surrounding this story seems a bit dumb, but vaguely entertaining. Is it fair to call Chris Pronger “The Puck Burglar” now?

    It does not matter 6-5 or 2-1 Hawks Win
    only way Pronger to touch puck is to steal them after the game

    “Puck Burglar” gets my vote as a phrase to describe Canadians. Much more entertaining that “Canuck”!
    It would make a great team name…The Puck Burglars….

    Keep the pucks, Prongy, the best road team in the NHL is paying your sh*thouse a visit tonight and Friday, and then you can play with your pucks all summer long while you wonder what ran you over the first week of June. Use ’em for fire starters when your fans burn down the city after being swept. Speed kills. Hawks in four.

    So how’d it feel to be oh so wrong, Mike D?
