Andrei Kostitsyn, Benoit Pouliot watch
 
I don't see any info regarding their status, but it's my understanding that AK is close to a return and Pouliot, I have not heard much about, anyone know anything?

The team is completely different with these two in the lineup, and if we had Cammy I would have thunk we could have went on a serious playoffs push a la Ottawa. Right now I think the best we can hope for is some offense.

With 6 days left in the season before the 2 week Olympic break, I can't see any of them coming back. Pouliot was put on IR by the way, so he cant be back before saturday which is the last game before the break.

Just wait till the break is over and habs resume play march 2nd, Pouliot, Kostitsyn and Bergeron will be back. Cammaleri should be back around March 15th.

Yea. Even if they're ready to play the last 1-3 games, I'd let them rest for the Olympics (in the case of AK46) and just general RnR for the rest of the break so that the chums could relax and heal minor injuries/bruises.

RevenueSharing* 02-08-2010 03:52 AM

why is pouliot on the IR anyways? i didn't even hear anything about it. just one day, i went to a GDT and it was briefly mentioned "Btw, Pouliot is on the IR" and nobody even questioned it!

Not knowing the severity of Pouliot's injury, i'll just assume that we'll have both Benoit and Andre back for the first game after the olympics.

is andrei on ir?

King Woodballs 02-08-2010 07:49 AM

Pouliot had to go on IR so they could make the call ups
Had the team not IR'd him they would have been over the max allowable players on the roster

Since Cammalleri went down, our Canadiens are 3-1; it's amazing and a great display of resiliency. The olympic break will sure be appreciated in Habs land.

According to François Gagnon from La Presse and cyberpresse.ca:

Marc-André Bergeron: knee; doubtful before the break

Pouliot: shoulder; doubtful before the break - I read (can't find the link) that he currently is unable to shoot the puck since he played while being injured against the Bruins.

-----------------

As for Andrei Kostitsyn (knee), his little brother mentioned a few days ago that there is a 50/50 chance that he'll play at the Olympic but according to Jacques Martin, "after the break" is more realistic. I already provided the links... the search engine is your friend!

Thanks for clearing that up Kjell Dahlin

That's you typical shoulder injury. Usually you can't shoot until it's all healed up, but- of course varying on the degree of the injury- it usually heals pretty quick.

But I've no clue what the problem with his shoulder is... if it's dislocated it seems like a pretty naive prediction.

le_sean 02-08-2010 07:28 PM

One thing is for sure, this Olympic break is really going to help this team.

Q. "... But I've no clue what the problem with his shoulder is..."

A. "... Benoit Pouliot qui est blessé au muscle sous l’épaule droite..."

It's the "right shoulder' muscle" according to F. Gagnon; a strain maybe?

Yeah he is.

I really wanted him to play in the Olympics since it's a great and rare opportunity for him to represent his country but if he's not 100% healthy I'd rather see him take 2 weeks to get better.

Andrei Kostitsyn was on the ice alone with head athletic therapist Graham Rynbend about 90 minutes before the scheduled start of the morning skate. Nothing demanding, but some gentle flexibility and range of motion work.

Andrei Kostitsyn gets conditional OK to play for Belarus.
This is good, makes me feel pretty confident he'll be back in time for the western trip, and much needed at that.

Sounds to me like he should be back post-Olympics, and may even get into one of Belarus's last games.

With the way he was playing pre-injury, I fear Belorussian doctors are going to take a"conditional OK" as a "he's good enough" and screw him up by playing him to fill up some much needed scoring.
