3 ready to go, 1 BIG maybe, and 1 has the flu (Habs I/O)

Koivu uncertain for start of playoffs
posted by Dave Stubbs at 14h54 EST on Apr 5

The return of Canadiens captain Saku Koivu for the first game of the playoffs, probably Thursday at the Bell Centre, remains uncertain. Koivu, out with a fractured foot since last Friday's game in Buffalo, met the media after this morning's game-day skate and said, "It's going better. I'll have a better idea next week."

Koivu said he hasn't yet tried to put his foot in a skate, but believes he's healing normally; he's no longer on crutches, but is wearing a walking cast. He's to be re-examined by team doctors Tuesday or Wednesday.

"I've faced much adversity in my career and I've always found the means to come back," he said, reported by La Presse Canadienne. "I'm just happy that the team has qualified for the playoffs."

Other news from the Canadiens clinic:

• Defenceman Mike Komisarek is essentially ready to return after rehabbing a hip injury and possibly could have played tonight, but is following the advice of team medical staff in waiting for Game 1.
• Forward Michael Ryder's leg injury is almost completely healed and he'll be ready for the start of the playoffs.
• Defenceman François Bouillon still has pain in his right ankle and will benefit from a few more days' rest.
• Forward Mikhail Grabovski remains "quarantined" with the flu.

Koivu will play, he's one of the toughest players of this generation considering what he's gone through. He will be ready for game 1.
Good news with the rest of the guys except Grabs but that's just the flu (Don't get the rest of the guys sick, unless they get the Michael Jordan flu bug - for those who follow basketball).

Poor Grabovski, first he was shipped back and forth from Hamilton and scratched in most games, then he becomes unhappy about it, then he gets to play some and show good things and then he's the reject of the team and probably boxed up somewhere in a hotel closet.

Good news. Hopefully Saku will be ready to go. As far as Grabovski goes, I say send him back to Belarus and tell him to come back for next years camp. It is no time for a flu bug to be spreading.

That's pretty ridiculous. The team is being very cautious and Grabo has been kept away; there's no need to send him to Russia and end his season...he's part of this team and could see some playoff action.

Send him back to Russia and have him work out there Rocky-style. He'll come back ripped for next yr.

haha, I like Grabovsky, I think he'll come back strong in the playoffs when injuries take their toll and score a crucial goal in the second round playoffs that'll turn the tide in our favour, and then he will be hailed as the new age european mullet man (even if he cut his hair).
