The "Pronger was tough in his early days" rep reminds me of the same thing said about Messier. They were mean and dirty, and the Sherwood is their best friend, but good luck finding video footage of an actual fight to back this up.
Just a bunch of chirping based on what the media put out there - The man, the myth, the legend. Don't confuse fighting ability with playing the game tough.
Both guys are tough hockey players, neither can fight. I don't think Mitchell has ever won or lost a fight....it's always a lame ass wrestling match. Still though, looking at the guys we had on the ice at the time - he had to step up and he did. Mitchell gets the edge in respect, but the fight was pretty much a draw.
Pronger is one of the toughest guys in the NHL...based on his early days. He was the only guy to land 2 punches in this fight. Ok, a **** fight but not a Mitchell win. I think all you young pricks that no nothing should go back a few yrs. Just because you don't like a guy doesn't mean he can't win a fight...morons. Same goes for Brashear, seeing all the hugfest comments. He's a freaking legend.
What a "Hugfest" by Pronger! If you're going to act tough at least throw some punches instead of tackling people on the Ice like that's a real win. Pronger's a pu$$y that sticks his nose in where he doesn't belong. Hartnell is guilty of doing the same **** too. Both are "window lickers" that don't know it's actually more manly to let people fight their own battles instead of trying to tagteam opponenets in fights. Fight your own battles you pu$$ies and let your pu$$y teamates fight their own battles too!
