As long as Chris Pronger doesn't retire, #Flyers can receive LTI relief for his cap hit of nearly $5M until his contract expires.
If he retires, however, the 35-plus rule dictates his contract counts in full against the #Flyers cap through 2017. http://www.capgeek.com
So, he can't retire until 2017? Did the Flyer's ask him not to retire? Not that it matters to Pronger, he still gets his money anyway. But, this is huge for the Flyers.
