What's the latest on Downie?

Qurpiz 01-23-2013 01:33 PM

Meant to ask about your avatar.

Why?

Foppa Frossa 01-23-2013 02:16 PM

No word on Downie, McG and PAP is not at practice, but I was under the impression that they were taking a maintenance day.

I am under that same impression. Curious why Dater wouldn't say if Downie was on the ice or not considering he wrote about how he left the game.

Sherm put the thread under injury report!

According to the Avs Twitter feed:

"Steve Downie (knee injury) will not practice today"

"Jamie McGinn, PA Parenteau & Gabriel Landeskog will also not practice today (maintainence)."

I think it was from the "Who scores our first goal" thread. Whoever guessed right got to pic an avatar for Shermanator.

Cause who doesn't love Todd Bertuzzi? That's why!

Downie out, Kobasew in on Thursday.

More tests being done on Downie.

henchman24 01-23-2013 02:56 PM

Also Hunwick to make his season debut on Thursday :yo:

This must be what it was like for Blues fans when Tarasenko debuted.

The delayed announcement on Downie has me expecting the worst. This sounds like an NFL knee injury where they run tests for a few days before publicly stating it is a season-ending ACL injury.

I hope I am wrong.

I actually think it's the opposite. Doc's always test for the worst cases and if it was season-ending, I think they would already know.

Maybe they just need to let the swelling go down before they can thoroughly test it. :dunno:

Drij 01-23-2013 03:17 PM

It can't be that bad if he skated off the ice by himself.

I've torn both my MCLs before playing hockey and could still skate/play. A slight tear to the MCL should keep a player out ~2 weeks, and a full tear could be up to ~12. A further injury to the ACL would be the main concern if he played with a torn MCL.

Yeah, and BOC is ruthless. I'll make another challenge when the week is up :laugh:

Fears are COL winger Steve Downie's knee injury is ACL, could mean end of his season. Avs say still assessing extent. Doesn't sound good.

Damn it! It is Mueller all over again, just not concussions this time :rant:

RobinDIF 01-23-2013 04:35 PM

Sgarbossa time? Please just bring Kobasew in and "everything is fine"

No if true, time to trade a depth defensemen for a 3rd line winger.

Neither one of them can do what Downie does so either way it's a huge hit and everything won't be fine.

We thought we would have three very good lines and quickly went from Downie-O'Reilly-Hejduk to Kobasew-Mitchell-Hejduk.

This should give O'Reilly some ammo in negotiations. We are going to need him.

I would say it's time to trade for Nino Niederreiter; trade one of Siemens/Barrie/Elliot + for him
