So we have all read the reports, that Pronger has been scooping up the pucks after the first two games (both losses for him) and tossing them in the garbage. Apparently he has done this before, I was not aware, but what do you guys think of this? At first glance, even as a Hawks fan, I find this kind of funny, but at the same time pretty juvenile.

On the other hand, the sports-historian in me thinks its absolute trash to do this, this would be like taking an artifact from a precious dig and tossing it because you are a sore loser about not finding it. So i dunno. Discuss

I heard he misses the entire trash can on 85% of his attempts.

Silly, yes. Juvenile, absolutely. But yet somehow it's quite endearing.

I feel the same way...kind of an azzclown move. Sort of lacks class and respect for the game in a way.
