No Stars practice today, but update from the plane is: Rome (foot) could be out for a while and Larsen (head) is not on the flight today

Oleksiak has been called up, and they are hoping Trevor Daley (neck) can go Monday against Nashville.
Wow .... So the only certain healthy D are Jordie Benn, Dillon, Goligoski, Oleksiak, and Robidas ... and they don't have anyone else to call up other than Jace Coyle, Hubert Labrie, and Carl Sneep.

He's already skating. Razor is a play by play guy.

What's your point? He was wrong in this instance, but he has as much or more access to the team than anyone in the media ... probably significantly more.

Well I'd say beat writers know more about that kinda stuff than a guy who does PBP. He's a high level guy with vague comments. It's common in the NHL like this.

i'd trust the beat writers more too. but razor is not a "high level" media guy, which i interpret to mean as local guys covering all sports (e.g. dale hansen) or hockey guys that cover the entire nhl. he is a stars employee with one duty to inform fans of various goings on the club in his jocular way. he writes a blog on the stars website and does weekly radio interviews on the most popular radio shows in town.

razor also does not do play-by-play. he puts the "color" in color analyst.

anecdotally, the times when i attended stars practices, i'd see ralph all the time with nary a razor sighting.

Mike Heika:

Quote:
Stars goalie Kari Lehtonen went through a rigorous workout with his teammates this morning in Nashville, but he still is listed as questionable for Tuesday’s game at Columbus. And, it seems he’s probably actually doubtful to play.

“There is a game tomorrow, but (the decision) will wait until after the morning skate,” Lehtonen said. “It’s still a possibility, but I think there still is 20 percent I am not sure about. We’ll see.”

What we've already heard...

Glen Gulutzan said Kari Lehtonen is probable for Thursday, barring the unforeseen.

This has got to be a positive sign:

Optional practice for Stars this morning. Ray Whitney taking part.
Hopefully we're only about a week away.

Great news.

I'd say he's a game time decision now.

They said he was ahead of a schedule ... I think it was Heika ... and 4 weeks would be March 1st.

I guess it is possible that he'd be good to go for Thursday.

From Stepneski:

Quote:
Forward Ray Whitney, who has missed the last 12 games with a broken bone in his foot, skated during today’s optional practice in Frisco.

“He’s on target to get in a few practices next week,” said Stars coach Glen Gulutzan.

Stars GM Joe Nieuwendyk said defenseman Aaron Rome is going to be out a while with a foot injury.

“I want to say six weeks,” Nieuwendyk said.

Nieuwendyk said defenseman Philip Larsen, who has missed the last two games, could be back soon.

“He got hit in the shoulder, he’s nursing that,” Nieuwendyk said. “I don’t think he’ll be that long. He’s not on IR as of now, but we could make it retroactive if it went beyond a week. I don’t think he’ll be that long.”
So they're thinking closer to 6 weeks than 3 on Rome obviously. That puts him out past the trade deadline.

I bet anyone willing to take it $10 that we hear from one member of the coaching staff or front office, "it's like trading for a Top 4/6 defender," when he comes back from injury.

The "it's like trading for a <insert position> when (player name) returns from injury." is standard in all sports.

Both Whitney and Larsen hope to return to practice on Tuesday. They're off today.

I'm sure we'll get an official update from Gulutzan after practice, but I can't imagine this is a good sign he'll be ready to go Thursday:

Mark Stepneski ‏@StarsInsideEdge

Whitney only took part in the first part of practice, wasn't on a PP unit.

Mark thinking he'll be good to go on Thursday.
