"A great day for Edmonton, and Hockey in general" 
I loved reading some of these comments after the Pronger to Edmonton article:

It seems that the cap has proved that the leafs are the weakest team in the G.M. position. Don't worry Canuck fans, I see Kariya and Niedermayer coming your way. Us Leaf fans get to marvel at the catastrophie that is the 2005 Leafs where Tomas Kaberle, Nic Antropov and Karel Pilar seem to be more valued than Gary Roberts and Joe Nieuwendyk. I love the Leafs but I hate them just as much.

Edmonton should give Gary Bettman the key to the city..... still Brewer and Woywtika was a stiff price to pay on top of the 7.2 million. You could have had Neidermayer for 7.8.....looks like Calgary gets him.

As a long time Oiler fan, I never thought I'd see the day come when the Oilers would finally be able to land a top draw talent like Pronger. Thank you to both the players and the owners for allowing the Oil to compete with the top tier teams again. This is truly a great day for Edmonton, and Hockey in general.

In the comments there was a rumour that Pronger is signing a long term deal for around $4.6 a year. We'll see.
