MTL's Tomas Plekanec appears to have cracked his ribs in Kladno's game tonight vs Trinec. He was taken to the hospital for further testing.

Probably a month needed to recover from that.

So if the lockout ends, either Gally is our #2 center...or the tank begins to roll with Gomez as one of our top 3 centers (lol).

EDIT: Seems like it's nothing serious, merely a few day injury.

Andy 12-27-2012 06:55 PM

Knowing the habs luck, Plekanec will miss 3-4 months and the lockout will end.

Is that good or bad luck? Keeps Gally up with the big club and we draft high.

At this point, I don't care if 3/4 of the team gets injured and we finish dead last. Following the NHL as a whole is something I'll be much happy with.
Plus, I have no problem finishing last in a season with 40ish games this year. If that were to happen with the deep draft and us having 4 picks in first two rounds (I believe), I'd be very happy.

Danleri 12-27-2012 07:00 PM

Good news for us to get another top 5 pick

DAChampion 12-27-2012 07:01 PM

If there's a season and we play without Plekanec, we'll be hearing the followinf on HFboards the next summer:

"Habs are not a real 14th place team. The only reason we came in 14th is because of a freak injury to our best forward. Next year we're back in the playoffs for sure."

*******************

Best wishes to Plekanec for a speedy recovery.

Lars The GOAT Eller 12-27-2012 07:02 PM

Sucks for Tomas but in regards to the Habs this has a couple silver linings regarding Eller, Galchenyuk and the draft if there is a season.

Watsatheo 12-27-2012 07:08 PM

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Bourque - Eller - Gionta
Prust - Gomez - Armstrong
Moen - Nokelainen - White

Hopefully the lockout ends and the Habs can get the pick they deserve.

Marc the Habs Fan 12-27-2012 07:12 PM

Would definitely be put up or shut up time for Eller in terms of offence.

Would be important to know how many ribs are cracked/broken? Hopefully some info filters through.

you know I agree with you. 2013 is a very deep draft. The habs already have 1 first and 3 second rounders. If the league starts up with a 48 game season the habs can dump a few players for some high draft picks, then go to the draft loaded for bear in a great deep draft for the sake of 1/2 a year then I sure would be willing to wait for next year to see some fresh faces.

Tanking a shorten season to get another top prospect to compliment Galchenyuk is the best option for the Habs right now. It'll suck for 48 games, but will pay off rather quickly after.

And so for next year...?

Pacioretty - Desharnais - Cole
Drouin - Plekanec - Gionta
Leblanc - Galchenyuk - Gallagher
Moen - Eller - Prust

White

like I said, I agree, it would be the fastest rebuild in habs history.
Last year Timmons did a great job, let Timmons go at it again with like I said 1 plus 3X2nds and maybe some extra picks due to some dump trading and all in a great deep draft year and the entire stock of prospects goes through the roof.

DAChampion 12-27-2012 07:30 PM

I see many people have changed their minds on tanking since I was nearly universally panned for suggesting it in the surgical tanking thread last summer.

It must be the shock and awe of seeing how good Galchenyuk is, of how good it might be to draft high.

JustAHabFan 12-27-2012 07:31 PM

With Plekanec out and the lockout end, we will draft top 3 again.

Roulin 12-27-2012 07:41 PM

Sheeeeet, get well soon TP. He's been incredibly durable throughout his career, hopefully this is just a flukey blip on the screen.

I'm still very against tanking. I'm also skeptical about the concept of "surgical tanking" - has any team actually done this? Any tanking I can think of is sloppy and unintentional.

and if hes traded at the deadline it could mean another high pick

pine 12-27-2012 07:42 PM

It's not tanking if you just plain out suck.

Undertakerqc 12-27-2012 07:42 PM

If he misses any gametime, the habs will be a better team. If there is a season.

I think the fact that it would be a bizarre & unconventional season with only 50 games over 4 months at most makes it easier to adopt that line of thinking. Tougher sell if you are looking at 82 games and 6 months of it.

vokiel 12-27-2012 07:44 PM

Oh my he's finished :sarcasm:

Actually habs are pretty much finished...

I don't get that :laugh:

It wouldn't be a Plekanec thread without PatofQC bashing him and saying he makes the team worse.

Well he does not make it better with his -20 last year.
