I'm guessing that it means that he's been injured (but may not be any longer) so he's been placed on IR now and that dates back to when he got his injury! He may not be injured any longer, but there must be some benefit to having him placed on IR for the period he's just missed although I couldn't tell you what!). Just my thoughts, I may be totally wrong!
They just put him on IR after all this time so I doubt he'll be playing anytime soon. It should be retroactive to the date he played his last game which would make him eligible to come off IR whenever he's ready to play.
Yeah i have followed it very closely because i have Forsberg in my hockey pool !
I never heard anything about 2 months off. I heard maybe surgery (maybe that's where the 2 months off came from?), but latest i heard was Forsberg told a close friend of his that it doesn't look like he'll need surgery. That also made it into the Denver Post newspaper.
Just no sure whether i should activate him this week, or wait until he's actually been back for a few games ???
I have Datsyuk,White, and Cajanek for my required 3 centremen and they are doing well lately so i think i'll stay with them.
They say Forsy is on the Injured Reserve list, but that he's "available to play on this Thursday".
What the hell does that mean ?????
He's allowed to play if he's healthy ?
He's healthy and he's going to play ???
Thanks for any insight
When a player is placed on injured reserve, he has to be out a minimum of one week. It's like the DL in baseball (15-days) or the IL in basketball (5 games). Since Forsberg has not played since November 9, he was placed on IR retroactively dating back to then which obviously was more than one week ago. Thus, he is able to be "activated" off IR when the Avs play next. Of course, that's not going to happen. The Avs only put Forsberg on the IR to get their roster limit to the NHL maximum of 23. It didn't mean or imply a change in his status.
