Except Whitney won't be in the lineup for very long if history continues to repeat itself.
Here's hoping that your and my gut feeling isn't true.
Can you imagine if we got the highest ranked d-man at the next draft?!?!?! It would be FREAKIN SWEET!
And imagine if we got a first+ for Hemsky, Hemsky got hurt and then the team that traded for him sucked down the stretch at the end of the year and the 1st rounder was in range of a Cam Fowler type player. That would be one hell of an EPIC DRAFFFFT!
2012 just might be the return to our hay days and the end of the world for everyone else!
This is Chorney's chance to prove that he belongs. I bet he runs with it and spends the rest of the year in the NHL.
He and Petry should split #7 duties when Whitney returns and then Petry should go back to the AHL when Sutton comes back. He has very good #3-4 potential but needs more pro seasoning getting 25 minutes a night in OKC will be great for him.
