The injuries give us a chance to see some new players and I'm sure those who get the chance are not too heartbroken about the other players injuries (for example: SK won't weep about Gomez).

The book Working by Studs Terkel, from about 1970 features an interview with a Chicago Black Hawk player Eric Nesterenko who openly admits that he sometimes wishes a teammate will fail or get hurt, he says he's not proud of it but it's common.

It's the selfish (or looking out for one self) part of human nature.
It's almost normal, since I don't picture too many AHLers thinking "I hope everyone will be healthy this year even if it means to never get called up since I care more about other players more than I do for myself!"

I (in a way) respect Eric Nesterenko for telling it like it is.
Not every Bulldog player will come out and say "I hope there are plenty of injuries with the HABS this year so I can get my chances!!...those guys already have their NHL careers/paychecks, I've got to get my turn".

This reminds me...there must be so many backup goalies with hidden voodoo dolls!! ("c'mon get injured will ya! this is my chance to be #1!! after all...I've waited so long and don't wanna be a bench warmer forever!").

Not really fair, my rugby team this year had to stay on a bus for six hours like he did right before a game and it really messes you up. I say let him play one more game before we judge him too intensely

Was below average, ineffective... But he's an AHLer sooooo wasn't expecting much.

Very hard to judge. He was playing with Chipchura and Wyman, so they spent most of the time in the defensive zone.
But to be honest, a big part of the game was like a never-ending 5 on 4.

Desharnais played about 7 minutes and he played with chipchura and wyman.

Never mind the quality of his linemates... there's just not enough sample size to properly evaluate him

Playing with Chipchura and Wyman sure didn't help. These guys are so terrible its not even funny.

Chipchura-Desharnais-Wyman would be healthy Hamilton's 3rd line.

Aside from it being his first game, he spent six hours sitting in a car. Give him a couple of games before you ask that question.

Interesting comment, seeing as both last year and this year, the Dogs best line has been centred around Desharnais and he hasn't been playing with superstars or blue chip prospects.

Bit early to judge DD at the NHL level, what with playing on a cripled team after hours of travel against one of the best in the league in his first ever NHL game. On the plus side, at least he would have been used to playing with most of his teammates last night.

I liked Desharnais... didn't shy away too much, and was at least trying to hit. Anyways, I would like to have him center the second line next game, maybe rotate him and GlenMet to see how well DD can play with some real wingers.

well with all respect , he's not exactly the type of player we should expect to perform when paired 7 mins between chip and wyman ...

I was hoping he would have played extended minutes... maybe pp second waive.. up to 12 mins of TOI ... that's what I was hoping for ... he seems to me like a very intelligent and hardworking prospect ... giving time to this kind of prospect is never a waste ... imho.

I hope he'll get a couple of games under his belt before being sent down ... paired with bigger guys, he could be a good player for us down the line...
