....geez
It was said in the GDT because the announcers on CBC and RDS said that was the reason. They *announcers* didn't really know and were just speculating.

Imagine Markov feeding Koivu Kovalev and Sundin on the first wave.

Maybe but pts in the AHL don't mean much. See: Darren Haydar , Jason Ward , Jesse Belanger , Tom Kostopoulous ect and i could go on and on. Not saying Lehoux doesn't deserve a shot because he's still quite young at 26 but his AHL production shouldn't be the only criteria.

That said , it's time for Plekanec to step up if Koivu is out for a while. He hasn't been that great and now would be the perfect time to redeem himself. Hopefully Lang (who hasn't been bad mind you) will elevate his game a notch as well .

Doom and gloom much ?

We were a worst team the year he had cancer and we still made the playoffs. We have much more depth an talent now so i don't see why we wouldn't make them , even without Saku.

I'm not trying to diminish Koivu importance here but let's not panic too much .

On CBC's post-game show, PJ Stock said he thinks it's a groin or knee injury.

On the close up replay of Koivu skating through center, looked like his right foot was bothering him.

Isn't speculation fun?

No way does Maxwell get the nod ahead of Chipchura if that's what it comes to. Sundin is obviously an option, and Gainey is definitely pursuing him.

I keep reading that Chipchura is injured BT. Can someone confirm this?

Out for a week. Depending on how any discussion might of gone between Gainey and Sundin, perhaps they'll wait for his decision before making a call up. I haven't been following that December 15th deadline too much though.

Thanks, I wasn't sure of the time frame. You really haven't been missing much with regards to the deadline. Same old stuff repeated over and over again.

Hopefully its nothing serious. But in the unfortunate event that he is out for an extended period of time, you gotta think that BG makes a HUGE push for sundin.

Knowing Carbo he'd only put that PP unit out with 30 secs left in the PP...

You could have put up the 95-96 London Knights as the Montreal Canadiens that season, and if Jose Theodore is the goalie, they are making the playoffs.

(For those who don't know their OHL, and don't feel like looking up Wikipedia, that was the 3-60-3 season)

For Lats it's like losing his mommy. Put him on any other line and he's a potted palm tree.

It's too bad he's injured so often.. Any idea where it is this time if it isn't the groin?

You realize 8 teams from the Eastern conference make the playoffs right? I think you mean no Markov, no playoffs or no Price no playoffs.

Usually maybe, in this case, not at all.

The man needs to stop playing with his groin and focus on skating around politely asking fellow hockey mates to a gentlemen's duel at center ice or whatever he calls hockey.
