Losing Frattin for the finals really hurts our Calder Cup chances. He's been the Marlies' best player and I highly doubt Colborne manages to step anything up in his absence. Looks like Scrivens will have to be the Norfolk kryptonite if we're going to win although I'm no longer as optimistic as I was yesterday

For those asking, Frattin's knee surgery will not affect 2013 training camp.

I'm skeptical, but it's possible. Just not highly probable.

I don't see why they'd do a surgery so quickly if it wasn't more serious.

Knee injuries are never good news.

Knee injuries generally fully recover. It's not like it used to be. It just sucks in the short term.

Best case scenario, it's a meniscal issue that clears up in 2-3 weeks.

Saying that, I'd put my betting dollars on a torn ACL, with surgery so quickly announced, and a 4-6 month recovery time. He may be ready for the start of a season (depending on when it starts) but he won't have the off-season to get ready like we all hope he would.
I'm leaning more to meniscus. Torn ACL's actually = 6 months to 12 month recover time. Meniscus' less serious and the way he crashed into the net he hit more so the middle of his knee. well that's what it appeared like. either way hopefully he gets better soon, we need him

It's not a normal mechanism for a meniscal tear. A meniscal tear is generally a long term thing, not traumatic. There's very few surgeries that have a quick recovery.

He's been playing really well.

It looked like he was hurt when he went into the net on the goal. I trust he'll be ok for training camp. I hope he doesn't lose out too much on his summer prep. I really like his game.

Just need the others to step up that's all. Remember when Sundin went down in what, 2002?

Alyn McCauley came up big. Need some performances out of Colborne, Deschamps, Dupuis, etc.

Does it sound stupid if I say I just have this cinderella feeling for the Marlies?

They are such a cohesive unit. Tight as it gets and I just wouldnt be shocked to see them play an unparalleled grinding and team game to win it.

I really hope this is the case. I love this young group, and really like how they step up on the occasion. So I hope even when some of our core players are missing, we get the best out of the rest to cover our tracks.

With all the injuries now, hard to see how the Marlies can beat such a juggernaut team. Anything can happen, but we were already missing key guys, now the best player on the team, the odds are quite long.

Frattin has been great but I think most people would think Scrivens and Gardiner are bit more important to the team. Marlies didn't have Gardiner and Frattin for most of the season and still finished third in the league; they'll be fine against Norfolk. Hopefully they get Zigomanis back because that would be huge.

Will the real Joe Colborne please stand up?

His time to shine. No Kadri, no Frattin, possibly no Zigo. He wants to make a good impression on management, he needs to get back to the first half of the season when he was one of the top players in the A.

Really, I think you'd be hard pressed to find any observer who would say Gardiner has had a better playoff than Frattin?

As I said in my original post, with the OTHER injuries, this one really hurts.

I've been able to watch half the games and Frattin has been fast, dangerous and really sniping them in for sure. I just think that the Marlies aren't gonna be entirely screwed without him. Gardiner is close to a ppg as a defenceman and we know what he's capable of. As long as Scrivens stays in top form and the rest of the guys contribute like they have been it's anybody's series.
