Great night to be a Jackets fan...
We will improve when our guys are healthy, you try to run an NHL team when guys get hurt!

yep yep, you are so right, yep yep. Inconsistent line mates, not playing the position he was drafted for, playing on a team who has been full of underachievers, yep totally reasonable to say he's been over hyped and has under-delivered.

However bad management has been, no team survives the injuries this team has had this year. Only team I've seen come close to living through something like this was Pittsburgh last year.

Not an excuse, for sure, but certainly a fact to consider.

I'd be interested in seeing what teams have more injuries than us and what their record is.

All I know is that Porty said we were in the top ten in days missed from injury.

I'd be more interested in seeing dollars off the ice due to injury/suspension. The injuries are even more brutal when they affect your premier players (Carter, Wiz, Huselius, etc).

I wasn't that upset after this game. It felt good to see the effort in the 2nd and 3rd periods, after going down 3-0. Vinny continues to endear himself in the Nordique household, and the name Brassard is no longer a derogatory term. I really hope we can keep Sanford as a #2 next year.

If we had played well when we had all our players for a few weeks (or at least most of them) I'd care about this conversation about injuries. Since we still played liked crap, I don't care.

Even with the injuries, this team I don't.

Examples. The key players with less than 50 games played (we've played 54).

RJ - 49
Brassard - 46 (He was scratched to death)
Methot - 46
Carter - 33
Wiz - 29
Nikitin - Partial year anyway. This season was done before he was injured
Martinek - The dude was bad before he got injured. Not sure that his injury wasn't an upgrade to the defense. I would say that Moore has more than made up for Martinek.
Juice - The real true injury issue and we knew about it from the beginning. That's part of the reason we brought in Prospal who has been healthy.
Letestu - Not even going to entertain that as a key player.

So what are we saying here, Martinek and Wiz are the reasons we're sitting 11 points out of 30th in the West? One could argue we've been playing better than we have all season with a very heavy AHL roster.

I'll find it again, but I tweeted a list from January 31st earlier which had us 7th.

It is a mixed group. And a group that makes you realize that Noel, much as we made fun of the guy, has done a heck of a job with (1) a difficult schedule and (2) a lot of injuries.

St. Louis was just behind us and obviously they are in much better shape in the standings. The Islanders were near the top as were the Habs. The Penguins were at the top and are missing one of the best players in the game (in addition to having Letang out for quite some time) yet they are still solidly a contender.

Again, bottom line--depth cures what ails you. Look at who we are playing when injured versus who the Pens are playing and you get the idea.

I don't think that was the protest, maybe a few fans at the game tonight is what he's talking about? If so, good for those brave fans... If I'm wrong what we did two weeks ago was not a high school pep rally...
That's how he's spinning it.
