The only bad thing about this is a kid likely gets rushed. Simply put, there's no sign a kid is ready to assume a top 6 role. Maybe Palushaj since he's the most experienced of the bunch, but that's a stretch considering how he played in the NHL.

Bourque was a total disaster last year, a complete blackhole of suck, and this may get MT to reconsider his stupid plan of keeping the top line together.

It could also force MB to clear out some of the backend logjam in order to get a winger (which is something that probably needed to be done before this injury).

But I suspect there won't be NHL hockey being played during this absence anyway.
