In other words, Fisher has a concussion.

AtlantaWhaler 10-30-2011 01:18 PM

Not good.

alexmanu 10-30-2011 01:21 PM

So how long will Fisher be out for then???

I like Thang, let's see what he can do for us.

Fisher will miss at least tomorrow's game and clearly they like Thang better than they like Bergfors, so they are making this move. Let's wait for some type of word before declaring Fisher out for the year (that's not directed at you Alex)...

Excited for Thang. Strong work ethic and good nose around the net. If somebody has to be called up, I'm assuming Fisher is out for a few games. Possibly a week. When dealing with a possible concussion you want to be absolutely sure. Symptoms can be triggered in various ways. (skating, exercise bike, running, etc)

bringing up Thang is a real slap in the face of Bergfors/Poile imo

worstfaceoffmanever 10-30-2011 01:51 PM

Told you he was first call-up, BFC.

Roman Yoshi 10-30-2011 01:52 PM

Yikes.

Surprised bergfors hasn't been traded or waived yet if thang gets a call up over putting bergs in. Still, not sure what ryan thang has to offer this team offensively but I guess we will have to see. Surprised mueller didn't get the call.

Fortheloveofthegame 10-30-2011 01:58 PM

Maybe Bergfors in, Thang in the stands? Are there any other healthy extra bodies for this road trip?
I like how Bergfors has played, when I have caught some games. Seems to have a lot of jump, and creating on offense when has the chance?
Guessing it is his defensive zone coverage that has given him limited playing time?

Depends what kind of role Poile promised, if any, to Bergfors. Perhaps there's more to the story. SK along with Fisher not ready?

Josh Cooper's Twitter says Thang hasn't "officially been recalled" from Milwaukee "at this time"

He won't officially be recalled till tomorrow at 11 AM CST for salary cap purposes. Essentially, he's being paid an AHL salary today despite being scratched and being told to meet the team in Chicago for tomorrow's game...

Bergfors perhaps. Considering Poile made this call, I'm fairly sure it's no skin off his back. A reclamation project that clearly even the Preds can't seem to salvage.

oh alright thanks

Basher 10-30-2011 05:21 PM

Is he bringing his wife, Mrs. Thang?

Top 6 Spaling 10-30-2011 05:30 PM

If/when he scores, I better hear "Wild Thang" blasted at the Bridge.

Roman Yoshi 10-30-2011 06:30 PM

Going to be pretty scared if sk and fisher are out for any length of time

WartracePred 10-30-2011 07:26 PM

From what I've read of Thang, his game is similar to Fisher's game - hard on the puck, and strong along the boards. Bergfors plays a different style of game. He's all finesse. I can see Bergfors playing more like Erat. Considering how we've struggled without a strong forecheck, no one should be surprised that a player like Thang is asked to fill in for Fish.

Bergfors may still have a place on this team, but it sure ain't in a Fisher-type role.

BADofSmashville 10-30-2011 07:28 PM

This scares me guys because we lost Bouillon for how long cause of a concussion? Not good at all!

You gotta do it like the Ladies man Leon Phelps.. Sweet Thaang! lol

Are we sure it's a concussion?

Nothing official that I know of. Just expecting the worst. Unless I missed something major.

For what it's worth, this morning Fish's Twitter said he was "feeling good today" and hoped he would be back soon. Could be worse....but ya never know and unfortunately "upper body injury" is the kiss of death for the Preds. It'll be very interesting to see if he goes on the west coast trip or not.
