What you are saying makes no sense.

If it's been determined to be a broken ankle, it would have been reported by Bob and Jim already.

I think they need to conduct X-rays and MRI to determine the extent of the injury. I am going to guess that your "radio report" is wrong.

True. He got a nice little extension in Ottawa too. I dont think the Avs have had a legit goalie since Roy.

I also think the success of Anderson in Ottawa shows just how unhappy he was in Colorado. He has been terrible for them this year, and he goes to a team almost as bad as the team he leaves and has been playing amazing. If your season is over, and you won't be re-signing him, why keep a guy on the team around young players that don't want to be there? Basically trade him, you aren't losing anything, and maybe you get something in Elliott. It was a way to try out a new goalie for nothing.

If he goes down and doesn't come back, yeah, the Cup dream is dead. But this is a defense first club. So now the team needs to rely on their defense and goaltending even more. They will rely on that and get in and could even do something without him.

So nobody really knows why Brayden Schenn can't be called up? Can somebody show me why he can't be on the Kings roster until Saskatoon gets eliminated? Because I can't find it.

Pretty much. Now, I'm not contesting any arguments that Heidi is anything more than fluff. That is and always has been obvious and I like Heidi. I just don't understand why anyone would expect Heidi to break any news. As I said, Hammond doesn't even break news. Why would we expect Heidi to? And why would Lombardi and co. want Heidi to go on air and speculate with unsubstantiated rumors? Wouldn't happen.

Oh really? Look back at Doughty. He had a concussion. The team failed to ever say that. It was ALWAYS listed as upper body injury. If it's a broken ankle, you can be damn sure the team will only call it a lowe body injury, which they already have.

Ahhhh yes, Dancing Boys "sources". Wonder if its the same "source" that told him Lindros to the Kings was a done deal. Or maybe it's the "source" that told him the Kings and Coyotes had a deal that would go through at 9:01 am EST this past trade deadline.

Avs are going half-speed in this game...haven't seen a team play this badly since the Columbus game earlier this season.

Or was it last season?

But that was pretty obvious.

With so many bones and ligaments in that part of the leg, it's in no way obvious.

Sorry I thought it was clear that we were looking at any comparable situation because any other situation simply doesn't make sense.

The fact of the matter is that Schenn isn't ready to come up and fill any first line center in the NHL shoes let alone one of the top ten in the game. The Kings have kept their hands out of the cookie jar with him for a reason and why would they chance ruining all of that time invested in developing him only to say "our playoff chances are all on your shoulders kid. Sorry it has to happen this way but you either have to produce at a star level or your gonna look bad oh, and we know that you aren't projected to be a number one center in the nhl but we gotta have what we gotta have regardless of the outcome".

When his team is eliminated call him up like they had planned on doing and if Kopitar is still out then of course you put Schenn and or anyone else who might be able to handle it in his spot, then the only pressure on the kid is the same as it is on him anywhere else you would put him.

Lets start with a simple question, is Schenn NHL ready? Absolutely, several pundits have said so and I agree completely. Is he ready to be a team leader? Questionable, he has that type of personality but without experience he is going to have a hard time finding followers amoung the vets on the team. Is he ever going to be a number one center in the NHL? Time will tell, I think that he might be able to down the road.

Is he ready to step in and fill Kopitar's shoes today and lead us to a cup? No, if he were Crosby then who knows but he isn't.

This just mean every player has to play 10 times harder and guess what...all of them are capable of doing exactly that. Our season isn't over. Neither are the playoffs.
