hatcher out 4 months

Hatcher is out 4 months with a torn ACL. Ouch!

It'll be interesting to see how the deep Detroit defense handles this little set back.

Fortunately the Wings have alot of depth and a guy named Hasek in goal. They don't look to be extremely strong 5 on 5, but their PP will keep them in games. They'll survive. Hatcher wasn't a huge loss to the Stars imo, other than a physical standpoint, I don't think Detroit will miss him that much either. I think he's overrated from a defensive stand point, but that's just my opinion.

Rather easily I'd say..

Lidstrom - Fisher
Schneider - Chelios
Kronwall/Woolley - Dandenault

Fisher has been a rock, I think their defense is among the best even without Hatcher.

If he has a torn ACL, then four months seems extremely optimistic. Typically a torn ACL puts an athlete out a minimum of 6 months. That is about the time frame that Fischer was out last year.

It must only be a partial tear, and a tear that doesn't require surgery.

The interesting thing is that Hatcher could miss approximately four months and still play in all four Wings-Avs matchups. The NHL schedule making is a joke.

Sounds to me like he tore it completely. Even 6 months is iffy. Usually it takes a whole year or more to get back to where a guy was before an ACL injury. But notice that they don't say what ligament he tore, just that he tore one. If it's a MCL or PCL then he should be back by 4 months. But if it's an ACL or LCL, then he will be very lucky to be back and playing well by the play-offs.

Apparently it is a torn ACL according to tsn.ca, and they state that he will have surgery which indicates to me a total rather than partial tear.

in 95-96 Krupp tore his ACL and was out until the beginning of the playoffs, he was a huge exception then. I don't know how much medicine has caught up with the ACL tear since that time.

Now they say Al MacInnis's eye is giving him trouble again and could be out indefinetly.


Just keep that injury bug away from our D

Well, if we look at NFL, then Jamal Lewis is definitely doing well after an ACL tear. Actually I think it was his 2nd because he also tore it in college...I think.

But even in the case for any sport, full recovery from an ACL tear is very rare.

Agreed. His injury just made Detroit's defense faster.
Plus the new mandated soft elbow pads by the league this year dropped Hatcher's stock

Kronwall, Wooley, Dandenault.... or Hatcher???? If I'm the coach I know who I'd rather have short term.

Hatcher should be ready to go come playoff time, and that is all that really matters for the Wings.

Is it a leap year or something?

I'm hating the wings a little more this season, I don't really know why, it's just something I feel. Everybody with the exception of Yzerman and McCarty, I really don't like these guys. I wouldn't want to see any of them get injured, but I really want to see them get pounded game after game after game. I think maybe it's because the yankees won a couple days ago.....


I was just wondering if anybody else has felt the same thing?

How can you hate the entire Wings team, except for McCarty?

But anyways I think what added to the fivalry is how the two went completely when it came to how they play their games. Detriot went defensive and Colorado went offensive. It should make the games very interesting later on if Hatcher is available.
