Injuries happen, there's no way to avoid them. Depth is the key to deal with it as long as those injuries don't turn into nagging recurring pests!

The big picture is a whole different thing. As soon as one LTIRer comes off the list, someone else is going down.
Rathje, Lappy, Pronger, - fill in a name -, and there is still room to carry a Shelley. They could really do better in terms of smart contract management.
Seriously? It's management's fault that players with guaranteed contracts get injured and go on LTIR?

Homer did a great job, IMHO, in getting two solid depth guys for the D at the deadline, Grossmann and Kubina.

Before that, when Pronger went down, Bourdon stepped up and surprised us all by being an NHL player when it looked like he might be ECHL bound at camp. Gus played very well too, and in fact looked better in the playoffs than he did during the season.

Grossmann is a relevation, then Penguin cheapshots hurt his knee and concussed him, Bourdon too. Kubina's injury hasn't been disclosed, but we are going to be calling him a warrior too when we find out.

Meszaros made it back from back surgery. As now reported, Kimmo has a knee ligament issue to go with his bad back.

Timonen-Meszaros
Grossmann-Coburn
Carle-Kubina
Gustafsson-Lilja
Bourdon

That should have been a deep enough blue line.
