Sucks that he's out, but he'll back in time for the playoffs at least.
With time to spare, could be a blessing in disguise as it is the reason Poni is back. Upon his return the team should be stronger then when he got hurt. He will be like Zajac returning late last season.
It always sucks to lose a forward at times like this. Especially a top 6 guy. This is one thing I was worried about from last Summer when it appeared we would start with 8 defensemen. Luckily with Poni I don't expect it to be as big of a blow as it could have been.
