I think Gorges will be good to go for tomorrow, Halpern not so sure.
If we're going to replace Gorges though, a guy like Weber wouldn't be the answer. His offensive upside is nice, but the kid gets manhandled in the defensive zone and needs more time to work on that game. As for Halpern, White would be a nice call up. The head smacking into the boards was pretty nasty, but what worried me more was when the back of his head hit the ice.
Both hits scared me. Gorges is riding his "iron man" streak which makes me nervous in that he may keep playing despite what he may feel. Gorges got up slow and was wobbly. But here is to hoping they are both okay and it's precautionary in both cases.
Didn't like the O'Byrne trade because D is a high attrition position especially in the JM system which includes a lot of shot blocking. I gotta believe they are awaiting the official, official prognosis on Markov to make their next move on D whether it be a recall or a trade.
The AK penalty against Richards was the biggest joke of the night. Richards slashes, and hits the numbers near the boards, AK turns around and pushes him, then Richards goes nuts and starts swinging with his gloves on, and somehow the habs are on the PK there.
A suspension for Powe head hunting ? Forget about it. You can just imagine Campbell laughing it up with whoever replaced Walkom.
Funny thing is I remember Bégin had some legal hard hits a couple years ago where he was thrown out of the game and did a lot less on those plays than Powe on any of his two retarded head hunting hits.
So refs won't do anything, league won't do anything... what else is new?
