This sucks... with MacInnis' injury, the 11th dman on the Blues' depth chart will be playing tomorrow night.... the 1, 3, 6, 7, 10, & 11 guys. Ouch.

Good thing Salvador (#4) comes back next week.

You are probably right about how this board would react to a Forsberg injury. After all, Kings fans still make jokes about Forsberg's spleen.

However, you cannot excuse your behavior because others behave just as badly. Did you ever hear of the concept of sportsmanship?

And if you don't care about sportsmanship, could you at least consider the karma you are creating for Avs fans.

And if neither sportsmanship or karma give you reason enough not to gloat, you might consider this: Gloating about an opposing player's injury says much about you. Is that the picture you want to paint of yourself?

I thought AvsGuy was being sarcastic...

If this is indeed the end of the line for MacInnis, then I am sorry that it has to end this way. He always had one of the hardest shots in the league, and I've lost count how many times he won that contest on the All-Star weekend.

But if the eye is hurt that bad, he doesn't need to make things worse. A knee is one thing - and sad that I am to see Hatcher out, I have great faith that he'll be back. But you don't play around when it comes to your vision - eyes don't heal all that well...in fact there's always a chance of making things worse.

I for one will be sorry to see it end like this, but as I said, your vision is more important...you need it for a lifetime.

Hopefully he isn't out for the season.


Hatcher is a different story. I don't like the guy and could care less if he plays or not.
Same. I hate to see players go down to injury regardless of the team, but Hatcher's injury probably saves many others from getting injured. :/

Life is pretty good. I suppose it can always be a bit better but no real complaints.

Sorry for jumpin' in so late on this, but in case anyone was curious, MacInnis actually had surgery on both eyes on Friday, which was announced in a late-afternoon press conference on Sat.--in his previously-injured eye, he had his detached retina repaired and the lens removed (after the original injury, the lens had been tilted back and he'd required a special contact lens that almost acted in place of his natural lens, and that's what, presumably, he'll use now), and he had some "retinal weakening" corrected in the other eye (which is supposed to prevent further damage.)

Here's a link to the story:
http://www.stltoday.com/stltoday/spo...+lose+MacInnis

Whatever he decides to do in terms of his career, I hope he gets better soon and is able to lead a normal life. He's definitely one of the classiest guys in sports and we miss him already.

Christ, i'd move.


...and injury troubles continue for the Blues. Dammit, I have tickets to Canucks/Blues on Wednesday and I was hoping to see MacInnis.

So far this year Pronger has been great and he looks to be atleast 80 to 90%. No question the lose of Mac hurts but I think the defence will be better with Pronger and without Mac than the other way around.
