Anyone got an update on Merrill? I've been searching the web and literally no updates on the injury he suffered back in October.

Samuelsson has 27 points in 25 games so far, but Lou couldn't have drafted him anyway.

EDIT: Although, Matteau leads Ulf Jr. in goals despite playing 2 less games (suspensions).

Coach Berenson told the media that Jon Merrill’s neck fracture is not responding as fast as they had hoped and he is most likely out for “several more months”

There was a chance he could be back in late December. Doesn`t sound like he will.

Neck injuries are no joke though. It really shouldn`t be a surprise to anyone, but still.

He already has the NHL calibre shot, and sometimes that's enough to make the show.

Eh, maybe but who knows. I know I`d rather move on and try to forget about A) being sidelined for twelve games and B) not being able to play because of a neck injury as soon as possible.

You know what? I actually don`t think he should stay there. There`s nothing left to prove for him there. And his bad habits can only be fixed by playing in a men`s league, at pro level.

What habits, bizarre situations to sideline him for entire seasons? He'll have played like a dozen games over a 2 year span. Yikes

Nope. Physical play, being too calm and sluggish at times.

The only bad habits Merrill has are related to his calm style, which sometimes makes it seem like he's not trying hard enough. He can be burned to the outside by speedy forwards because he doesn't react in time, the same problem Larsson has had a few times. On the breakout, Merrill's calm comportment is a great thing.

Glad to see some plug from Northwest Newfoundland Regional Polytechnic went headhunting and ended Merrill's season.

Berenson did call the hit delivered on Merrill a “clean” one. On the play, Merrill possessed the puck a few feet from the boards, shielding it from the forechecker.

The hit on Merrill, combined with the space between him and the boards, allowed him to fall to the ice and then awkwardly collide with the end boards. Berenson said if it weren’t for the distance from the boards, it would have been a “simple” collision.

There's always a risk of injury when playing hockey. Merrill got unlucky.

You didn`t see the game, neither of us did, actually. He could`ve underestimated the situation, put himself in a vulnerable position, much like Scuderi.

Josefson got "unlucky" when Pandolfo broke his hand. He didn`t get "unlucky" that time he crashed awkwardly into the boards, that was simply his fault (not knowing his speed, trying to force the scoring opportunity while not being aware of his position and not caring about his own protection).

So you're saying he's gonna bust? Dang, I had my jersey on pre-order and everything.

I'm glad I was wrong about Gelinas so far, hope he continues to make me look like a fool and develop into a quality player.

Wow, that is a severe punishment. Now I'm really curious what they did.

Right here. Punishment seems a bit extreme in my opinion.
