Koivu: Status Vague?
 
TSN has posted a vague report concerning Koivu and when he might play. Could BG be using some playoff subterfuge to surprise Carolina at gametime?

Maybe I'm grasping for straws here, but if Koivu were ready for the game tonight, I think I'd use the same strategy.

Koivu Won't Play, But Eye Is Improving

I'm thinking that means very very very small outside shot for game 7, but should be back for early on in round 2.

KingJarl 05-02-2006 03:42 PM

TSN is now reporting:

"Koivu was to miss a third straight game Tuesday night."

"Gainey said he cannot predict when Koivu will be able to resume playing."

... I dunno ... but I can always hope!

If what you say is true, then Bob Gainey shouldn't coach in the NHL. Obviously he has enough experience and won many Stanley Cups.. You can't do that, even if you're in series.

Laviolette did the same, when he was hiding to the journalist who was going to be his starting goalie on game #3.

if Koivu comes onto the ice out of nowhere tonight I gaurentee montreal will win the stanley cup. It would be the single greatest comeback in sports history. Man gets monstrous cut on his eye expected to miss weeks then returns. It would be like something from WWE.

I don't understand this comment. Why should he not coach in the NHL if he doesn't want to report the status of his most valuable player until gametime? Maybe they'll do a last minute assessment before gametime? Why is that so unreasonable?

That being said, I don't expect by any means to see him tonight, but I certainly don't think covering the severity of the injury is reason to call for BG's job (if that is what he is doing).

I'm with ya on that BG shouldn't have to say anything about the injury.

IMO no team should be forced to give specific information about injuries other then to say that a player may or may not play. Why paint a target on someone? This isn't football where you only play a team one time, this is hockey where you line up against the same guys for two solid weeks. Injury info is for the gamblers anyway.

Well, if and this is a Big IF Koivu manages to play a game in round 1 all I've got to say it that I've heard stories of players playing on one knee, a fractured wrist, broken ribs, broken foot, the flu, etc...but never have I heard of someone playing with only 1 functioning eye.

Garbs 05-02-2006 04:09 PM

What's all this about a picture surfacing?

Well that's just it. We have no idea how well he can see out of that eye.

... here's hoping!

Yeah, but then Williams would come from behind and hit him with a folding chair, and then Williams, Brind'Amour and Cole would stomp on him for a minute while everyone looked on in shock... then they would run away while Souray, Downey and Komisarek came running

Then J.R. would be screaming "Oh my God!" over and over again




:huh: The worst of the above is I only see like 5 minutes of wrestling a week because I'm waiting for SportsCenter

has a career threatening injury been completely ruled out yet?

From what I gather, it seems a career threatening injury has been all but ruled out. That is, there are still parts of the eye they can't check - but if the recovery continues at this pace, there should be no permanent damage.

Well, he can "hide" his line-up... but if a journalist asks about Saku, he should at least answer about. I have a lot of respect in Bob, so I trust him when he says that Saku won't come back. NHL is not WWE hehe.
