Lets not jump to the conclusion that Saku is out for a long period of time..

For now lets just hope it is a day to day thing.

When I hear confirmation that Saku will miss some decent time (which hopefully I wont hear...) then we will talk Higgins.

Just because this type of injury can still 3 weeks or 1 month

The thing is we still have 2 weeks before the season starts, and until he is re-evaluated, we won't know. It could be day to day, 2-4 weeks, 4-6 weeks, or 2 to 3 months.

Also, we all have to remember this is pre season, if Koivu (or any other player) felt any twing in the knee, they would leave the game just for pre cautionary reasons. Personally I don't want to jump the gun, if Koivu's injured seriously, you deal with it when it is confirmed, its purely speculation as of now.

Agree 100%. Didnt even think of that. Good point.

You have a very good point. This is pre-season hockey, you better be careful with youre stars players.

Every year when I played basse-ball, During the first 2,3 games I would allways feel muscle pains in my trowing arm. All it would need is a good strech. Lets hope its the same with koivu.

I won't vote. I don't know if Saku's injured or not, he could even have left for cautionary reasons if he felt a slight pain.

However if Saku's gone for good, we're in so much trouble that it's not worth talking about it.

Yup if Saku's out, Ovechkin's in...I seriously believe this.

No, I think that if it is necessary to put a guy in the lineup it will be Ryder. Anyway, Koivu isn't injured like for 10 months, "just" 3 weeks (or less) so he will miss "only" 3-4 games.

Here:

It'll be appropriate to answer every post asking what kind of season we can expect if Koivu's not coming back or Traverse is.

Higgins wouldnt play with Koivu.

From what I saw last night, he isnt gifted enough offensively..

It may be that he wasnt given a chance to shine with his linemates, but in any case...

*OR* (call it a long shot), it could be that he's a rookie coming from College and needs adaptation time.

Yeah, it might just be a tweaked miniscis (sp?) in his knee. I've had that and it just needs to flip over again. But you can't run when you have it. I'm sure he's fine since he didn't go down and didn't make a fuss when he left the ice.

In any case, Higgins has a long way to go to prove he's ready for an 82 game schedule on the 4th line, let alone a scoring or checking line.

I know, I know... maybe my comment was a little too extreme and over the top...

I don't suppose BrettHabs24 noticed that Higgins played with Blouin and Ferland one night and Dwyer and Dackell the next? Mario Lemieux would have trouble creating offense with them. I was at both games, and I could see opportunities vanishing because his linemates weren't keyed in.
