The hit looked pretty awful...I cringed when they showed the slow motion replay. Hopefully it's just needed to be popped back in and he's day-to-day, but I guess it doesn't sound like that with the sling and all.
I'll be very relieved once Staal comes back, which is hopefully soon. I'm not going into panic mode, at least it wasn't Girardi or McD. Let's just hope they both heal quickly (Sauer as well), but in the mean time it will be interesting to see how Erixon does. I'm kind of excited to see him get some minutes to prove himself, although I hoped it wouldn't be under these circumstances...nonetheless, now is his chance to prove his time in Connecticut is over.
