Sundin sidelined indefinitely

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=138919&hubname=

Fractured orbitial bone. Tough break for the Leafs losing easily their best player. Good news for us that we probably won't have to face him for at least the first two meetings against the Leafs.

I don't think it was the same type of injury. I remember he did take a puck to the face but I don't think he missed any games as a result.

Bad luck for them.

Allison and Lindros are who they were worried about.

For sure but I see this as a great chance for us to go into the ACC on Saturday and get a win.

O'Neill miss the practice also, shoulder injuried.
As much as I hate the Leafs, eyes injuries is always scary as hell.
I hope he get well soon... but not to soon so we can kick their a$$ next saturday...

Too bad, hope he recovers nicely.

I'd rather see Montreal, with a healthy lineup, facing other teams full lineups. Harder to say this with all the injuries/setbacks the Habs have had in the recent past, but that's just the way it should be.

btw We shouldn't assume TO will be weaker opposition; remember how our team stepped it up one year without our best player.

Sundin is a class act and a great player, I wish him a speedy recovery.

Totally agree. It's way more fun when each has it's best players dressed.

I saw the replay and Sundin didn't even have a chance to turn his head or anything. Ouch. What are the NHL/NHLPA waiting for to make visors mandatory?

Ya, it would be kinda weird if Lindros plays 82 games this year and Sundin plays 38 (or so) games.

Well I guess centre is the one area the Leafs have depth, so......

As a Leaf fan, it's nice to see the classiness of such posters sometimes. Us Leafs fans have the idiots too, no doubt, but its a breath of fresh air.

Thanks, guys. Looking forward to Saturday. Nice win against the B's yesterday, as well.

Hate to see injuries, especially to a teams best players...in the past the Habs have had horrible luck with injuries and the Leafs always seemed to be relatively lucky, maybe now the pendulum has swung the other way...I hear Oneill is out too...only a matter of time before Lindros bunps his noggin in a game and then the will start...

Same shoulder as before?

Allison was so slow on the ice, Dags looked like he good skate circles around him, that guy is going to get knocked early in the season IMO. Lindros is just a question of time also.

Always a great rivalry, and usually a good game no matter who is in the lineup...but it is always better to have all the best players on each team playing...one thing about Sundin, he recovers from injuries quicker than anyone I have ever seen, he won't be out long...

Dummy Sundin. I respect him and all but his refusal to wear a visor is only costing him further. The guy's face speaks for itself but this insistance that he not wear a visor is total macho bullcrap. Maybe this is a wakeup call for him. Sure it was a puck and not an errant stick but he claims he can't play with a visor. Horrible excuse. The best part is, Mats wore a visor for his first 2 seasons in the league.

He must think that taking it off for his 3rd season (where he scored 114 pts.) was what turned his game around. But I think it was a natural progression. After all, he was still just 22 back then. Now, he's 34 and his career is in its waning years but he still doesn't mind taking shots to the face just as long as he doesn't have to wear an awful visor! Yeah, great job Mats. Nonetheless, hopefully he recovers but not in time to help the Leafs in a few games versus us!

I believe it is the same shoulder as before but missing pratice could very well of just been a pre-cauitionary move. He was slated to be the Leafs third shooter in the SO, so it couldn't have been that bad.

If the NHL and the PA can get together and agree on changing the size of goaltender equipment and various other rule changes, I can see no reason why they couldn't make visors mandatory.

Well thanks, but mmm... we kinda steal them. They dominate. But hey! A road win is a road win. And I guess that "stopping-the-other-team-best-foward" added to "stopping-the-other-team-power-play" added to "scoring-one-more-goal" means that we beat them right.

I don't why, I'm still not convince by my demonstration... Last night game was kind os scary. It's still just one game, but some habs' players could have problem with the new rules and new tempo...

They fear the wrath of the great and mighty Don Cherry and the scornful, scathing they would receive if they made visors mandatory.
