Vanek Update

Quote:
Ruff said that Vanek has a Laceration on his jaw and will have x-ray's tomorrow. They will know by tomorrow if he will miss anytime.
Per LGS.

We're royally screwed if he misses anytime.

If its not broken why would he miss time? Its Hockey. Drury came back the same game after having a puck put a hole in his face.

Hopefully he's just in need of a good dentist and will be back soon. If his jaw is broken, he better get some tips from Teppo. The old man made a pretty quick return (6 games).

Teppo also had the all-star break to help him out.

Vanek's probably going to be missing games due to injury for the first time in his career. Luckily, this kind of injury is flukey and once he's over it, he'll be fine.

But we're going to need our secondary scoring to step up big time. Pominville/Hecht better start scoring, and hopefully Roy/Stafford/Connolly will continue theirs.

I'm guessing Paille will play now if Vanek misses time, this is a good opportunity for him to earn his spot in the lineup. I don't know how Connolly and Stafford will play now without Vanek, those three were really doing very well and losing Vanek may slow them down.

Relax. I was speaking more on the level of "Sabre Luck"... or lack thereof.

He'll need surgery

Any shot Mark Mancari will get some time if Vanek is out a bit?

Depends on if and when Weber goes to Portland. If Paetsch gets moved back to D, Weber sent down, Paille and Peters would be the likely replacements.

If Vanek's out for a little while, I'd like to taste Zagrapan, please.

I'd like to taste Zagrapan! Wow does anyone else think this is a poor choice of words?

Do you play Zags at center and Connolly at wing?

Or perhaps:

MacArthur-Roy-Pominville
Hecht-Connolly-Stafford
Kotalik-Zagrapan-Kaleta
Ellis-Mair-Paetsch/Paille

??

I don't like that third line, but CMac should be playing with Roy instead of Kotalik. Patty seems a bit out of place on that line unless AlKo decides to start throwing the lumber out there as well.

Kotalic is only on the top line right now to increase his trade value.

If Zags comes up, I'd like to see these lines:

C-Mac-Connolly-Stafford
Hecht-Roy-Pominville
Paille-Zagrapan-Kotalik
Ellis-Mair-Kaleta

I believe he came back from his concussion in last nights game against Albany, so I suppose he could possibly be brought up too, but I would rather see Zags at this point.

I like OS's lines a bit better. I think if you bring Zagrapan up, there's no way you put him on wing in his first NHL stint. Might he falter under the defensive pressures of being an NHL center? Quite possible. But I'm hardly anxious to take him out of position to accomodate him. If he's not going to play center, keep him down and bring up a winger. That's just my .02

Marek Zagrapan, please... Give the kid a shot.... Paille and Peters don't deserve to play.... Well, at least not Peters.

Oh, and Vanek does pretty much have a hole in his face..
