Players have to pass a physical after being on LTIR before returning to the active roster, even if it is the next season. Pronger would never pass that physical aka baseline test, and you cant Amnesty an injured player. Which makes sense because it protects the player. For example if Pronger stays on LTIR he gets his full salary. If the Flyers buy him out, he only gets 2/3's. Really sucks for Pronger because he cant go out and get another playing job.
