Price and injured captain Saku Koivu skated before the main team took the ice. Carbonneau said both could be ready by the weekend, but neither will play on Thursday night.
Thank the lord!

Typical of a bush league station like RDS to focus on a stick fight rather than even noting Carbo's mention of Koivu's return.

Thank you Santa. All I wanted for Christmas is not Marc Denis.

Yeah seriously, they must have been secretly wanting him to go back to Finland anyway.

That would be a plus. Halak has been great, but we haven't been able to win with anyone not named Carey Price.

Does that mean we could play Sunday game with Komisarek, Price and Koivu in the line-up ?

I'd be worried about Price coming back so soon. I thought he had a groin injury and those are well known to linger for a long time when dealing with goalies. It would suck to bring him back one week in advance to have him re-injure himself and lose him for another month. I'll assume the Docs know what they are doing though.

I admit I don't follow the media too much but I never heard it was a groin, perhaps others have heard that? I just heard lower body, I do fear him coming back too soon. I'd rather keep losing now then rush him back and risk re-injury. But I'm sure the docs won't give him the green light unless he's good to go.

Great news if indeed true, getting Komi, Price and Koivu back would be great, they can send down Maxwell and Denis and O'B, so Hamilton gets stronger too.

You're right, I don't recall if it was a groin injury, I just assumed that a lower body injury on a goaltender was a groin injury. It could be something else, but most likely its not. I'll just hope he is coming back because he's ready and not because the team needs him back.
