Fair enough. I'm a bit fuzzy about the end of the movie because I was busy trying to stop myself from jumping off my roof after listening to her voice for over an hour and a half... it's like nails on a chalk board...

It's awful timing for Fisher given that he's in a contract year, but we have seen Justin Wiliams and Erik Karlsson recover quite well from similar injuries in recent years, so that should provide some encouragement for Mike.

Fisher is 34, though. Williams was 27 (I think) when he came back from his injury and Karlsson is 24.

You know, just a usual Monday.
Is he about a size 14?

Don't forget how good Meszaros was when he came back.

Meszaros was actually pretty good after coming back from his Achilles injury. But then he hurt his shoulder and that ruined him.

I feel for Meszaros. His back and shoulders really have taken a toll him and he's just a shell of the player he once was. His balance was off, he lacked power in his skating, and he was really tentative in his overall game. Back injuries are the real killer for players. Look at guys like John LeClair, Ryan Parent and Mike Bossy. As soon as they had their backs operated on, they were done.

Don't think so..Hexy said he's sticking with Vinny this year, maybe Vinny gets treatment for his back and scores 30+goals...who knows?

Well, I'd argue back and head injuries are equally bad. Back injuries are really scary though and are often persistent problems. Hell, we saw it with Vinny this year. He was our best player before his injury and quickly fell to our worst player.

Zero chance Vinny scores 30 goals

One thing I can not wait to see is when Neal plays with a scrub center. He will be back to 20-25 goals a year without the defense that Horny provided. Guy was a extremely hard worker as well.

Neal played with Staal when he was originally traded to the Pens I believe and put up 1 goal. Nashville is going to have an extremely tough time scoring.

Also seems like Callahan turned down more money from the Leafs to re-sign with the Lightning. Nonis is a moron, I have no clue how that man is a NHL GM.

I don't think it is that far fetched. He potted 20 goals last year and all people talk about is how awful he was. If he improves even a little bit 30 goals is not out of the question. It isn't likely, but I wouldn't say there is no chance.

Thank you...I was thinking the same when I posted...All depends on Vinny's back and if he can stay healthy.

I completely agree...being in the GTA I have to listen to this idiot(Nonis) on TSN constantly. Bonehead move #1 "Let's buyout Grabovski"..lol At least we Flyers don't have to worry about the Leafs with Nonis at the Helm.

If Vinny stays perfectly healthy and the 2nd Unit stops being a fertilizer fire, I think Vinny can definitely get or approach 30.

But those are both big ifs, and they both have to happen IMO.

Move him and Streit up to the top PP unit and let them blast away.

Our PP was not so great last year that we should be afraid of making changes.

If you put Vinny on the first unit that means you are replacing Voracek with him since they both operate off the right wall. I don't like that.

Hartnell is gone put Vinny on that PP line, Vinny has a great shot.

Same here. Voracek is much more dangerous on the side opposite of Giroux. Vinny would be pretty much only a trigger man.

I think the Hartnell spot is going to go to either Schenn or Simmonds.

Hartnell played in around the net, Vinny setups around the right face off circle for the one-timer.
