It really doesnt matter how tight they are, or even if they are player skates. If something hits your foot at the right angle your ankle will twist and if it were somehow that tight, your knee would twist which would be even worse. Either way, most pro players dont tie their skates super tight, they would rather have the ability to have some ankle movement to make sharper cuts.

I never had a problem with twisting ankles in hockey skates. I even played games on sprained ankles and had no issues.

Are you talking a sprained ankle...or a high ankle sprain?

They are two different things.

Cuz if it's a regular ankle sprain, then, yes, skates do a good job of protecting you from that and/or supporting it if it is injured.

Lol, well that's great superman, but I suspect you never experienced a serious ankle sprain or the right set of circumstances for it to happen. Fact of the matter is, it definitely can happen. I sprained my ankle playing ice hockey more than once. The last time it happened was very severe...it was over 5 years ago, and it still bothers me each and every day. I hit a pretty big dude up against the glass, he fell back on me, my one leg was in a bad spot, and all the weight of him and me drove straight onto my ankle as it buckled beneath me. I shudder just thinking about it.

A skate supports the ankle really well but "high ankle sprain" is sort of a misnomer. They should call them lower shin sprains or something, since they really don't have much to do with the actual ankle. The way it was explained to me is that when the foot gets turned there are ligaments between the two bones in your lower leg that get stretched or torn.

I can't believe that an injury to Michael Leighton of all people has us totally hosed heading into the playoffs. Now watch, here's where Boosh goes off like he did with the Sharks. I can hope, right?

Hey, Yutaka Fukufuji did the same thing. He was in the right organization at the right time to get the call. And he even got into a few games. And the Kings were terrible anyways.

Boucher has displayed the ability throughout his career to become completely unconscious for stretches of games...so, yes, there is some hope.

All I know is that they hurt like a son of a ***** and don't go away quickly.

Hey Boucher didn't do half bad for us in 00. We got to the conference finals with him once and their is no reason to think we won't be able to do at least that again.

Not sure how a high ankle sprain will effect a goalie but last year when Kane suffered it and played thru it he struggled for about a month and half

At time of his injury he was top 10 in scoring (if my memory is correct) and then struggled for a while.

The deal is reported to be a one-year $79.99 deal, with a reported No Movement Clause. GM Holmgren confirmed the deal with the local Wal-Mart moments after the Flyers' shootout loss to the Nashville Predators.

Wal-Mart Assistant Supervisor Grant Smiley acknowledged that the deal had been brewing for weeks.

"Yeah, Mr. Holmgren has been coming in since January and lingering in the sports department," said Smiley. "We had to ask him to leave several times at store closing. The Shooter Tutor has been up on display since October, and, truth be told, he just missed the special in our circular two weeks ago."

Smiley indicated that Holmgren "appeared agitated" while waiting in the express line. "He said he thought the woman in the relaxed-fit jogging pants was looking to outbid him.

"The price was $48.99, but Mr. Holmgren offered the cashier $79.99 and threw in a second-round draft pick. I don't know much about the NHL draft, but we could use another assistant inventory clerk."

To clear salary cap space, Flyers winger Claude Giroux was put on waivers.
I just laughed really really hard, but then I cried a bit, because its a little too probably.

See Hannu Toivonen :

With Andrew Raycroft sitting out due to a contract dispute, Toivonen started the 200506 NHL season as the Bruins' backup goaltender. He made his NHL debut on October 8, 2005 against the Pittsburgh Penguins, coming away with an overtime win. He holds the distinction of allowing the first goal of Sidney Crosby's career in that game. On December 1, 2005, he recorded his first NHL shutout, blanking the Ottawa Senators. Toivonen was 954 with a 2.63 GAA and a .914 SV% before suffering a high ankle sprain in January that effectively ended his season

Funny you would use him as an example as the Hawks just picked him up last month.

Still looks like he might have some NHL potential (As a backup) from what I have seen of him so far.

Him and Holmqvist could bust out the splits like no other. Problem was that it was like half his game when he was with the Bruins. I haven't seen him since though, maybe he's rounded his skill set out.

The hilarity of giving a shooter tutor a "no movement" clause is still cracking me up.

Well, this sucks. But injuries happen. I liked Leighton as a starter. What if we had traded for another goalie?
Would we still be stuck with boosh as the backup if THAT goalie got hurt?
Probably
