well, sorry about the injury but it was definitely avoidable, and its honestly ridicules that he isnt wearing a visor. It NEEDS to be mandatory, enough of this crap, how many players need to go down before the visor is mandatory? the answer is too many. Think about it this way, if you are forced to wear shin pads to protect your legs against shots/sticks.... when your leg bones are MASSIVE, why should you not have to wear a visor when you could risk losing your vision, it makes ZERO sense, it doesn't affect your offense or vision at all, these idiots need to be wearing visors, enough is enough. A player going down in the playoffs can make the whole difference on a series, imagine if we lost phil or JVR to this same injury during the stretch of the year, there is absolutely zero chance that we make the playoffs with them out. Look at the staals, its sad that it literally took one of their brothers almost losing his vision potentially for them to smarten up and put them on. Put them on and save yourself, its not a matter of "swagger" its a matter of safety. Its ironic that a body check to the head is a penalty, but a slap shot to the head is not (whereby obviously it isnt a penalty but it generates just as much if not MUCH more force at times) put the visors on please and save yourself.

Even if another dman gets hurt, no way Blacker plays, as Holzer and Komisarek likely get called up to play before Blacker draws in.

Well since fraser likes to fight , hed be at a disadantage wearing a visor, he either takes his helmet off or risks a nice punch to the visor whicch in turn destroys his face. I guess the puck got the better of his forehead anyways though.

I'd rather have Blacker in to be honest.

I'd rather have Kostka, too bad Ranger can't be called up. He is clearly the best NHL ready D man with the Marlies right now.

He's not ready, what hate, he isn't ready. He struggles more times than not at the AHL level, that's a lot to expect from a player to make a jump to a game 6 against the Bruins. He would melt under the pressure and it may ruin his confidence for good. His development has been slower than expected. Jesse has the tools for the game, his head needs to catch up to his skills.

I am not saying he is ready, but he has been one of the more reliable dman on the marlies for the last 3 months

yet you say, that kostka is better

Kostka is, if he were with the Marlies, he would be the clearcut best D man down there.

I hope he proves me wrong, nothing more I would love is for Morrison's picks pan out. I'm bullish on most of Mo's picks as most know here, but I won't just blindly tout them because I respect MO's picks.

I don't think Blacker and Ryan will be one of his better 2 picks, for 2nd rounders these 2 may top off as 4th line or 6th or 7th defence men. But let's hope they do better, just don't see it now.
