vokoun out, goehring called up

goehring called up today for vokoun, who's undergoing more tests on his thumb.. rumor is that it's a torn ligament in vokoun's thumb, that will probably require surgery, and 4-6 weeks.. been hearing this all day from good inside the club sources that tend to think this

happened on the cooke highstick goal i believe, when vokoun dove back into the net trying to reverse himself and dove ackwardly..

should know more any minute now...but whichever way you look at it, it doesn't sound good

Now we see how catastrophic it could have been to let Mason go this summer.

As it stands now, I'm not all that worried. Mase has been pretty dynamite this year.

looking at it from a worst case point of view... if vokoun requires surgery, which seems likely, it'll be six weeks (if not, and he only requires a cast it'll be about 4 weeks according to handtrick).. six weeks means right up until the chicago game after new year... 19 games before then, included in those 19 are 5 back-to-backs and the long westcoast roadtrip... i'm not really worried about mason per se.. i'm worried about him god-forbid getting hurt, i'm worried about his backup...goehring was terrible in camp, and worse than terrible in his first 5 odd starts this year in the AHL.. he's put together a few decent starts now which is good, but i'm not sure he is ready to play any at this level...

so the worry gets to be, do you risk basically not having any backup for that long a period of time?.. an injury to mason would prove to be a total disaster... but a 'proven backup' isn't that easy to find to help us out for the short term, just look at vancouver and phoenix trying to find one right now... you don't want to trade anyone with potential for a guy who will most likely be thrown in as rinne's backup in six weeks when both rinne and vokoun return.. but it's unlikely spare parts like abid, yonkman or henry get you anything better than what we might have

Done. Photo always remained, but the byline had changed to "Mason's Back"...still would have been appropriate, but...

Very happy again that Mason was resigned this past summer. Sucks not to have Rinne available, but hindsight is 20/20.

Karl Goehring... what a joke. At least was last season, he's doing better now? Hard to believe.

Major loss, but at least the injury is early enough for both Vokoun and the Predators to recover. On the flip side, at least we get to hear 'Aerosmith's' rendition of "Its A-Mason".

Pleasantly surprised as him only allowing 5 or 6 goals as opposed to 10?

I guess he was just dogging it in Milwaukee this year, saving his real game for the NHL....

The think with Karl is that he has stuck around for four or five seasons in the AHL, with Syracuse and San Antonio. I think some SA fans might say that he got no support from the front 5...also, he is really small - like 5'8" 180 is very generous for him even...he shows a lot of white net behind him at all times. But, for him to last this long - I'm not a coach or scout - so it must mean something. He has to be quick on his feet and with the hands. He did look like total crap his first two starts. But, he has brought his GAA down from a 9.90 to a 3.60 or something like that. He beat the Amerks and looked pretty sharp the other night (like 35 - 41 saves or something), and the Admirals D leaves a lot to be desired (i.e. giving up 5 unanswered last night after taking a 4 -1 first period lead!)...so, I honestly am glad to have Freddy Cloutier back down here - he looked a lot better in camp before he got shipped to Rockford - but I hope Karl is showing something to get him up by you before Scott (Reid)...As for Pekka (Rinne), at least late winter/spring...And, I don't care what anyone says. The shoulder joint is the most complex in the body, and many times shoulder surgery just does not do wonders - and players are never the same afterwards...FWIW.

When will there be an indication as to whether this will take 2 weeks or closer to 6? That's a hell of a time frame and this concerned poolie is... concerned.

the article today in the tennessean interviewed volkie. volkie said that the wound from the surgery would heal in about 2 weeks, but the tendons and other internal items would take another 4 weeks. he said he actually played about 10 mins after he hurt his thumb. so he was thinking that maybe he will not have to wait the full 6 weeks for recovery. perhaps a cast or some other type of support in his blocker. after all, do you really need a thumb to use your blocker pad? just don't want him to rush back and reaggrivate it and make it worse.

Why did Goerhing get the call over Scott Reid, who has clearly outplayed Goerhing this season?

If this does turn into a 6 week or longer injury for Vokoun, the Preds will need to trade for a goaltender. I don't think Mason is ready to play 80% of the games at the NHL level nor is Goerhing ready to play 20%.
