Yeah, I don't see it. He very well MIGHT play a full 48 game season this year (though I expect more like 25) but I just don't see his string of injuries magically coming to an end. It wasn't ONLY about concussions as we saw last season. He was in and out of the lineup which completely affected the Duchene line, that's mostly what this is about. He WAS unreliable and even when he was in the lineup later in the season, his conditioning was bad because he always looked a step behind and couldn't go longer than 30 seconds shifts. If it had only been the concussion issues and they were truly behind him AND he had at least shown a glimpse of the same chemistry he had before with basically anyone, the Avs would have either kept him I'm sure of that.

The Panthers took a risk and hopefully it pays off for them.

Lol the Hurricanes look horrible. It's nice to see kids like Zac Dalpe and Drayson Bowman get opportunities.

Tlusty is crap...why do they keep trying to force it to work?? lol
