does this perhaps speed up bergevin`s pursuit for another gritty forward.......
Doubt it if for that reason alone (due to the alleged timeline). What we need is for Max to heal Diaz and Bourque. Would be the ideal time for Rene to return, but that ain't happening for at least 2 weeks if he's not even skating. F'in colton orr. I realllllly want something horrible to happen to him.
Prust - shoulder - will miss 10-14 days, arm no longer in a sling (Mar 11)
Weber - knee - returned to Montreal for tests Mar 8
Bourque - concussion - out indefinitely (Feb 26, 2013)
Diaz - concussion - out indefinitely (Feb 27, 2013)
Nokelainen - back - LTIR (no-contact practice as of Mar 1, 2013)
Prust: Weber: Bourque & Diaz: Nokelainen:
Dumont looks like a reasonable fill-in for Nokelainen.
