Status of Lombardi?

I know nobody here can know for sure, but just wondering what the rumors are on Lombardi.

Last I heard he had a concussion, but as far as I know, he's been out almost the entire season. While concussions are serious business, in football you typically see a player come back from a concussion in the 3-8 week timeframe. Just seems strange...

Anyone got any additional info?

Football players don't have to skate and use have the balance or have the type of hand eye coordination that NHL players do. It takes a while for that to comeback. Some people might get over it quicker than others. The docs won't clear him till they are sure he's ready.

Football players are finally starting to realize that they have been rushing back too early for years and causing permanent injury from repeated concussions. Duerson's brain was donated to medical research after his multiple concussions. There was a time in hockey where players rushed back as soon as they could skate even if they still demonstrated symptoms. Even the Army makes guys sit out after getting their bell rung and will evacuate Soldiers from combat zones for concussions.

I'm more curious about O'Reilly and Bouillon, since both should, theoretically, be in line to come back relatively soon..

Don't know about O'Reily's broken leg. I wouldn't plan on seeing him at all. Healing, rehab, skating, and getting back into game shape would take a while. Bouillon has that concussion thing so who knows.

He was originally slated to be back in the middle of March, and last I heard, he was walking normally and "building strength."

He sits in my section. I saw him walking last night and he didn't seem to be having any trouble. He's out of the boot.

Cal is skating for the first time today. NHLPredsInsider just tweeted that news. O'Reilly is working hard to make a comeback this season.

I believe Cooper said recently that Cube had a setback and was experiencing headaches. I wouldn't count on his return.

Is their really room for cube anymore? He's not going to take Blum's spot.

If they don't remember, they can always look at Twitter. They poised for a picture with a fan that was tweeted yesterday. That's the only reason I even know they were there...

I think he's going to be the 7th defenseman going forward. the prototypical "Veteran defensive depth"

Or he takes O'Brien's spot alongside Franson next year and we have someone else at the 7th defenseman. The only way that doesn't happen is if Josi or Ellis steps up in the preseason and demonstrate that they're ready for the big time or if we re-sign SOB.

I was just referring to the rest of this year, if he does in fact return.

I agree next year he either takes OB's spot or if another youngster is ready to move up then he will remain as the 7th man

I find myself hoping we can keep SOB as well. When he's not in one of his stupid penalty phases he has really helped us out. I don't want him to get much if any of a raise though.

I hope we can keep Kostitsyn too. But another guy I don't want us to overpay. He will get a nice raise though. We need to be able to pay Shea and Suter.

I will consider it a huge bonus if Lombardi plays again and plays well. A bad break on that contract. But of course if he rests and rehabs long enough it may happen that he fully recovers, in which case he will likely be a solid player for us. But I don't even think about him when I think of our future forwards.

I think we cant keep SOB unless he takes a pay cut.

SK is only making $550K and has been worth every penny and then some in my opinion. You're right, he should get a nice raise, but as productive as he's been it'd have to be a huge raise to be overpaying him.

I think your right but even though I do not think the Preds would actually do this that's why I proposed trading Boullion and re-signing SOB. Cube makes 1.5 next year. If SOB agreed to a 2 year 1.75 deal I'd do that for sure. I love Frankie and he plays much bigger than his size but SOB is actually BIG and he's probably been more solid for us and unlike Cube were not trying to force him into a position he shouldn't be in (2nd pairing). Can't see Cube taking Blum's spot and he shouldn't to be honest.
