    Throughout the NHL lockout, there were stories that some players were more involved behind the scenes than others. And perhaps without the blessing of their union leadership.

    Not true, says Chris Pronger. The St. Louis Blues player representative insists rumours of him, Jarome Iginla, Robert Esche and Jeremy Roenick getting directly involved in February are greatly exaggerated.

    ''What Jeremy Roenick has been doing? I don't talk to him so I don't know,'' Pronger said before a player rep meeting Wednesday. ''I did talk to Iginla and Esche but I talked to a lot of other players as well.''

    This is just a defusing comment really. What else could we expect Pronger to say to this line of questioning?

    I thought this would be on his pre-lockout comments how he would "never play under a cap"

    hmm...Is there anymore humble pie left over for Prongs?

    Spungo is still eating some of the pie. It's the size of Montreal, so yeah I bet there's a slice or a couple thousands left.

    You missed the revisionist history memo. The 'PA and its supporters were never worried about the impact of the cap. In fact, according to Chelios, the cap really isn't a big deal. Rather, it's the impact of younger free agency on small market teams that has them concerned... :shakehead
