The Rivermen picked up Derek Dolson as a backup for Beckford-Tseu late Thursday.

Dolson, a seventh-year pro, has never spent a season above the class-A level. He spent the last three seasons at CHL Odessa. He was 6-6-0 with a 2.88 goals-against and a .910 saves percentage this season for Bloomington in the IHL.

I think it's the smart move.

I couldn't believe I heard JD say a few days ago that Legace tweaked his knee but he will backup Hannu in Edmonton tonight....I was thinking during the Calgary game on Tuesday, "Man I hope nothing happens to Hannu." And than Hannu laid on the ice for a moment...To not have a "healthy" backup is crazy.

What if Hannu would have gotten hurt in Edmonton tonight and Legace would had to go back out on the ice being injured and than he does possible further damage to his leg.

Glad the Blues made the right move on this to bring up Schwarz until Legace is ready.

Toivonen and Legace owner in my $$ league and have watched alot of Blues games this year on the dish. I like alot what I've seen of your team...very tough to play against...love the d corps and IMO, Blues will make the playoffs...thought so at beginning of year and I'm even more convinced now.

Gotta say though I love the way Manny has played and even though he likely is the MVP of the team thus far, IMO it is somewhat of a blessing in disguise that he'll be out for a bit. It allows Blues to see if Toivonen can handle the load(they needed to find this out anyways and so why not now...right?). And more importantly and maybe I'm in the minority about this, but I don't think Manny is a 65 game type goalie which is the pace he was on. He's more of a 55-60 game type. And so him being out for a bit while getting himself some rest while at the same time rehabbing his minor injury IMO really isn't a bad thing at all seeing its a healthy and rested Legace that is crucial for the Blues ultimatly down the stretch during any playoff push, that is required.

And as a bonus Toivonen gets some quality starts something I think he'll thrive in and gives your Blues a taste of what the future will be like. In essence, Blues are in solid shape between the pipes as Toivonen will continue to prove he's the real deal. So all in all not the worst thing in the world Legace sits for a few games and gets himself real healthy and rested. Blues and Canadians are in a similar situation in net and alot of teams in the NHL should be envious as its rare that if the starter goes down for a bit, the team should still be in solid shape going forward.

Bigtime Ranger fan(you guys are lucky to have JD) and probably showing my age by saying this but $crew it...I'm proud to be in my 40's(lol), but I remember vividly JD in his hey day as the goalie who led my Rangers to the Cup finals back in '78-79 when they played the Canadians and ultimatly lost 4-1 to them.

In all my years following hockey, I've never till this day seen a goalie get on a run like he did during that magical playoff run whether it be PRoy,MRichter or Brodeur...anyone. JD was absolutaly incredible that whole "out of nowhere" Ranger playoff run especially during the memorable Eastern Conference final Islander series when the Rangers as heavy heavy underdogs hoped on JD's back as he made incredible save after incredible save and led us to the finals.

Too bad he suffered so many injuries during his career cause if not, he could have been a truly great one....he was that talented. Anyways, I have very fond memories of JD as he made being a Ranger fan fun back than. And like I said you guys are lucky to have him as the orchestator of your teams rise back to respecability.

Can someone tell me how serious this injury is?
How long should I expect to see Legace out?

Hannu gets his chance to prove the doubters wrong ... Looking forward to it.

Hopefully not too much....I've got Toivy in my fantasy league and I need him to pick up starts. Huet is my "#1" and obviously he isn't playing lately....

Go Toivonen!

I think all they are saying is he tweaked it. What that means in hockey lingo is a good guess.

I'd say its a precaution and its damn nice to feel that we can take it.

(absolute)Worse case scenario he reinjured his knee and could be gone to the playoffs(speculation).

That would be a really bad injury....playoffs are 4 months from now.

I'd say realistically we're looking at a week or two w/o Manny.

I hope.

yeah, I'm talking he needs surgery on his knee again bad. I don't believe that is the case but I figured I might send a few fantasy hockey people into convulsions by putting that out there.
