Giggy's mom passed away, he's back in MON.

Not sure if he'll backup Monday in CBJ in time, if not Pickard is just down the road.

I was at practice posting from my phone.

Wilson was there, but left maybe half way through.

How did our two carrots look like out there?
Were they doing the same drills as the other ones, or did they skate by themselves?

We are getting close to being healthy (minus Downie). How is that possible?

Both EJ and Wilson participated in skating drills.

After which Wilson went off the ice and EJ practiced blue line shots on the goalie they brought in with Giggy out.

He's suffering from old age. It's a long-term thing.

He missed that game a week or so ago with a "torso injury", I'd bet he's probably still dinged up.

Defensemen Erik Johnson (concussion) and Ryan Wilson (ankle) are close to returning to the Avs' lineup. Both skated hard Sunday morning in an optional practice, with Johnson cleared for contact. Johnson might play Tuesday at Detroit. Wilson has a chance to play Wednesday at Chicago.

Please happen.

That'd be a pretty quick return from a sprain for Wilson, no? Or has it been longer than it feels? Definitely do not want to rush EJ back from his concussion. If he's out long-term, this D is so boned.

Wilson has been out for a while now.

I agree w/ not rushing EJ, can't have him going right back out again w/ another concussion/injury.

But no doubt that getting both Wilson and EJ back will be huge for our Defense.

EJ-Wilson
Hejda-Barrie
O'Brien-Hunwick/Zanon/O'Byrne

At this point O'Brien is playing better than Hunwick/Zanon/O'Byrne in my opinion, and deserves to be playing. I'd even say that Elliott should be playing over the other 3, just because he HAS to get some NHL experience, and maybe if they tried a similar pairing to the Hejda-Barrie pairing, that it could help get him some confidence.

Wilson had almost no progress in being able to apply pressure or anything for the first week after the injury. That was a bit scary, but he's recovered well now. Would surprise me if he's not in on Wednesday.

Elliott is almost certain to be sent down. Might as well let him play in the AHL rather than ride the pine.

All I know is they better be paired together when they return. I don't understand why they were separated.

Yes, but whoelse? Is Olver going to be sent back down as well?

I agree with Mars I would like the Dpairing to look like,

Wilson - Johnson
Hejda - Barrie
O'Byrne/O'Brien - Hunwick

Zanon
O'Byrne/O'Brien

I hope they don't send Barrie down, but I could see them doing it. Maybe we have a trade coming up? Because we are simply carrying too many defensemen and I think Barrie has overtaken a few on the depth chart.
