Could this open up a spot for Zibby or JS? I know we will miss his physicality but It would be great to get some help on offense.

We will definitely be lacking in physical play if he can't suit up against the Bruins. I wonder if they recall Dziurzynski or Zibanejad to compensate for the loss of the grit in the lineup.Hopefully Neil recovers soon.

Its not just the grit.

Many of the guys in our bottom six, heck many of our forwards in general lose focus, lose track of the game plan, starting running around, or start playing too fancy.

The beauty of Neil is not only that he really picks the team up and energizes the team with his hits and physical play but he also almost always sticks to the game plan. He knows his role, stays calm and plays his game the way he is supposed to. When other guys like Smith, Daugavins, Butler etc.. start playing like morons, Neil goes out there, lays a few guys out and drives the net. It seems to settle the team down and help everyone get back to work.

I've been really impressed with the leadership role he's taken on with this young team and I really hope he'll be good to go for the playoffs.

I also really hope he can play for a few more years like Domi did.

From the description it sounds like a separated shoulder and/or a concussion.

Of course.

Something always needs to happen. Just when I thought we were going into the playoffs with everyone healthy...

Hopefully it's not serious.
Playing the Bruins, I'd imagine Konopka will be in game 1 regardless of Neil's status

Let's not speculate wildly yet... we can't diagnose from a description, let's just hope for the best for Neil and the team.

Definitely a blow if Neil's not in, though.

Daugy was scratched last night so it will be him, and with Winchester coming back it brings an end to Konopka in a Sens uniform

Randomly flipping channels, the play was just shown on The Score.

He was going about half speed, missed his shot, and going by the net, his left foot caught on Bishop's pad, and he went head first into the end boards.

It was a fluke thing, and I'm not sure how he picked up speed after tripping.

While Hoffman is definitely deserving of a call up, Dziurzynski fills the void created by the loss of Neil better. Actually the best option could be to sit Daugavavins and Klinkhammer and call up both Hoffman and Dziurzynski.

Ya Neil has been a big part of the success of our team. The sens really need to add a few more players like him in the system. Sure there are some players with grit, but there aren't really any big hitters who can change the momentum of games through their physical play.

Well, given our options, in a series with the Bruins, I'd put Konopka in. JOB, K-Daug, Butler, take your pick, but I'll take Konopka's toughness over any of them, at least in game 1... see how it goes from there.

I have no idea why so many people advocate Dziurzynski on these boards, unless it has to do with the fact they like his initials. How many of them have actually watched him play?

Sure he's a pretty big strong guy, but that's about it. I've watched quite a few games with Maindot, and there are tons of guys on Bingo that has impressed much more than Dziurzynski. The guy can hardly produce in the AHL, what makes people think he can do anything in the NHL at this point in time.

And before people talk about hitting people or playing physical. He has a hard time lining people up in the AHL, it's not going to get easier in the NHL. The only thing he's going to be doing is chasing people while they score on us in the NHL.

He had a whale of a game against Carolina, and I was just thinking how much a healthy Neil could impact our playoff chances...

I have seen him play multiple times and IMO he has a lot of potential. He is pretty underrated by a large amount of the fanbase. He has also had a strong second half to the season and is deserving of a call up.

I wouldn't want him anywhere on the ice in an important game.

"Neiler's been great for us all year," said centre Jason Spezza. "He's a real impactful guy. He doesn't play a ton of minutes but when he does, his presence is felt on the ice. He can be intimidating to other teams' defencemen, finishes his checks and does a lot of things that are intangible that go a long way toward helping your hockey club.

"He definitely makes us a better team when he's playing well ... It looks like it's not too bad, so hopefully we're fortunate (and don't lose him from the lineup)."
So hopefully that last part is correct.

Even if Neil is concussed and has a separated shoulder, he'll play game 1 of the playoffs. He's oldschool and just that type of guy.

I honestly can't believe I'm the one defending Konopka... not a fan, wasn't huge on the signing, but at this point, I feel he'll keep the Bruins a little more honest than they might otherwise be, and again, i really don't see K-Daug, JOB, or Butler bringing vastly superior contributions.

As well as players reactions.

Doesn't look good to me.
2 things I noticed
1) Neil almost pulled off a pretty nice deke.
2) Funny Greening and Smith were helping him off since they're two of the guys who'll have to pick up a bit of his role if he's out.

Again, let's hope it's not serious.
