Watching Wilson presser. Wilson said Armstrong back in a week and surprisingly-given some said he was done for the year-Lombardi back in 10-14 days. Brown out six weeks after back surgery. Komi out 4-6 weeks now after surgery, expects him to start skating "right away".
I must admit, I think we've looked better since Lombardi has been out. Understand he needs to get his game back, but he was a big non factor all around before he got hurt, almost a liability.
I'd feel terrible about this if Crabb hadn't been doing such an outstanding job filling in. I think Crabb makes for a great 4th line addition in Brown's place... especially with Armstrong taking his spot on the third line again
Frattin in for games when we don't need a fighter, Rosie in for games when we do need a fighter. Not sure what to do with Lombardi, he doesn't really fit in the lineup IMO. I'm starting to think we lost that trade with Nashville actually, 2 years of Lombardi at $3.5 mil per year is pretty ******, not convinced that getting a bottom pairing dman in Franson makes up for it, especially since we almost never play him.
I had the exact same surgery as Brown (I'm assuming an open discectomey) and I was literally pain free like 2 days after the procedure. Herniated discs suck and it has to be pretty bad for him to have to get surgery on it.
