While the Blackhawks were being showered in ticker tape Friday during their Stanley Cup victory parade, the Philadelphia Flyers were cleaning out their lockers for the season.

Defenseman Chris Pronger had a few choice words for Adam Burish in response to what the Hawks' winger had to say following Game 6 of the Stanley Cup Finals on Wednesday.

"I think Chris Pronger is the biggest idiot in the league," Burish said moments after the Hawks won the Cup. "I can't stand the guy one bit. I hope I never have to see him again. If I see him out there, I might punch him."

The response from Pronger was what one might expect.

"I was asked about that, actually, yesterday, and I don't really comment on people who aren't really around and just want five minutes of fame," Pronger said. "But I will say that, if you're going to make a comment like that five minutes after you win the Stanley Cup, you've probably got better things to worry about."

And, Pronger added, "Did he play?"

Burish did not dress for Game 6.

"There you go," Pronger said.

Q. He said next time he sees you he's going to hit you.

Pronger: "Where's that, in the minors?"
