Hecht out "Weeks"
 
UGH...

Bulletin: More surgery for Hecht

Lindy Ruff just announced that Jochen Hecht had to have another procedure on his finger yesterday and will be out for "weeks, not days." Looks like he's out for the entire series, perhaps longer if the Sabres advance.

NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO NO :wallbash:

Well that's not good...

Mergus merganser 04-15-2010 11:09 AM

It sucks in a way, but I'm glad both Gerbe and Ennis will most likely be sticking around.

sba 04-15-2010 11:13 AM

"Jay McKee has a staph infection??" is the first thing I thought of for some reason.

jlr 04-15-2010 11:14 AM

So our best line is broken like Jochen.

****.

Let's hope Ennis or maybe Torres can jump in and be reasonably effective.

Gerbe likely won't. With Hecht and Stafford out, they have 11 healthy forwards. Ennis makes 12.

But this sucks. Hecht has arguably been the most valuable forward for this team in terms of overall play. Chips in offensively and is awesome defensively.

Pretty much. Losing him is a substantial blow.

dern it :rant:

ZemgusWho 04-15-2010 11:54 AM

last year I feel like I would have been elated for him to have been out for a young guy in his place, but this is rough, he is perhaps the one forward whose style of play is the perfect example of what is required in playoff hockey.

I'm looking at Torres right now, as he is the guy I think has the best skillset to come in and replace Hecht.

hottytoddy 04-15-2010 11:56 AM

Well that sucks.

Well this series just changed in a big way.

What piss poor timing. Kaleta, Torres, Goose, and Gerbe need to big time pick it up.

struckbyaparkedcar 04-15-2010 12:03 PM

One of our biggest advantages was our bottom six. ********ck.

Very much so. I said in the injury thread a few days ago that losing Hecht could be a crippling blow to the team. I really feel that he is one of the main pieces that has made this team a success this year. Hecht in the lineup changes the complexion of two lines completely.

edit: They really Torres to step up and be an impact player now.

dire wolf 04-15-2010 12:07 PM

Big loss for the team. Time for Torres and the little ones to step up.

How does Hecht go from being a game-time decision to being out for weeks in a day? :help:

To echo what others have said, Torres needs to find his game pronto.

Jame 04-15-2010 12:09 PM

Torres needs to step up... I'd like to see Torres on the Connolly line

Torres-Connolly-Poms
Kennedy-Roy-Vanek
Kaleta-Goose-Grier
Mair-Ellis-Ennis

Buffaloed 04-15-2010 12:09 PM

It's just a pinkie finger. Amputate the damn thing. This is the playoffs!

I'm no expert in reading between the lines, but it sounded sort of like he made it worse practicing? I hope he didn't injure it further by trying to rush back...

"Ruff did not disclose the nature of the injury and would only say there was further damage to Hechtís finger."

This is what I'm thinking too. I do not want to see Ennis playing top 2 lines during his first playoff game. I don't think he brings any of the things that we lose when Hecht is out.

and besides, Torres is a proven commodity with significant cup run experience. We need to use him tonight.

Yeah! No...seriously!

Why are folks now concerned with Ennis on the top line?

He was there all week and many seemed excited he was there. While Hecht was practicing with the 3rd line.

Why change things now?


I'm sure as the ebb and flow of the game (and series) moves along adjustments will be made as needed.
