Chris Pronger isn't ready to retire, even though a concussion specialist has advised him not to return to hockey.

The 2000 NHL MVP has not played for the Flyers since Nov. 19, 2011 and still suffers from lingering effects of multiple concussions. But he wouldn't rule out attempting a return if physically possible.

"I'm just trying to get healthy and live a normal life and get better for myself and my family," Pronger said Thursday. "The rest will take care of itself."

Pronger hadn't spoken publicly since Dec. 1, 2011. He said he still can't run, or even skate hard. He's bothered by bright lights and he's lost some of his peripheral vision.
