Not sure how you can begin to estimate the recovery time for a concussion, I'm pretty sure we'd have more news on Savard or Crosby if that was the case, but regardless the article is optimistic for a quick recovery.
So? They won't go on their road trip with just 6 D. Borowiecki will be getting a shot if Phillips is out for any extended period of time.
BORO will get the callup as the organization loves him!!! Wiercioch is next in line when his injury is healed even though he has struggled this season defensively. My guess is that these are the only two who are in the teams long term plans. They will need to sign some prospects at the end of the season.
Here we go again! Not another player with the word I dread: Concussion. That makes me want to run like a fool and hide in darkness. Please get a good defenceman to replace Phillips for the next couple of games.
Too bad. Was having a great bounce back season with 10 points to boot. Hopefully this will allow him to be a force down the stretch.
Brian Lee, you better step up and take this opportunity. I am not a fan of his play but he has been reasonably steady this year. Just that his shot is terrible and he reeks of self doubt. Hopefully a goal can change his confidence.
His shot is terrible, i dont know how he went all these years of pro,college and minor hockey not being able to take a slap shot. To be quite honest there are beer league guys that shoot better than him. Its kinda baffling.
He says he's been feeling good for the last few days, has had some good practices and obviously passed all the tests. Doesn't seem like a risk for him to play given that the game is tomorrow on top of all that.
One more thing, personally I think Carkner is better offensively than Lee as well, Carkner has way better pinches and is smart with them, and when he does go down low, has some pretty decent puck possession. Carkner also has a better shot.
