From Oilers Nation: Has Chris Pronger Been Traded to L.A.?

Has Chris Pronger been traded to the Los Angeles Kings for Jack Johnson and the 5th overall draft pick. I’ve been updating this situation since Andy Strickland first broke the story, and at this point it’s an awfully tangled web, so I thought that it might be a good idea to list the two sides (“yes, the trade happened/is going to happen” and “no trade has not happened/Hockeybuzz is stupid/The Score isn’t a real network”) of the story, and link to any analysis.

    I don’t even read those guys. Of course, you don’t have to, since all you really have to do is wait to see which rumors actually merit denials from management. Which is why I wonder about this one. Everyone was very quick to say MOVE ALONG NOTHING HERE NOTHING TO SEE.

    My guess as of this minute is there’s SOMETHING there but not what was reported. The issue is the #5 pick. Maybe it’s a game of telephone, and someone just assumed it was the #5 pick, instead of a conditional pick.

    We’ll soon see.
