LMAO

The 'Momentum Swing' video on the Canucks page right now has the clip of Salo talking about his injury. It's freakin' hilarious - watch near the end.

depending on what's actually wrong with Salo, I'd be tempted to give him Thursday off. if he misses Game 4, he'd have until Saturday to rest and rehab. having the series leads means we can "afford" to give Sami the game off, especially if it would have a significant impact on his recovery. it's better to be without Salo one more game and get him back at 85% than get him back as soon as possible and have him stay at 70% the rest of the playoffs.

as for Demitra, its a head injury. he needs to be extra cautious and stay out of the lineup until he's 100%. and as a bonus, imo, he doesn't necessarily "fit" the roster the way it played Game 3.

Don't even think about bringing him back until Game 1 next round (if we get there).

In Game 5 on Saturday, the Canucks may have to play without Bieksa, too. He suffered an injury to his left leg -- possibly a sprained knee -- when he fell awkwardly while battling Blackhawk Samuel Pahlsson for the puck.

Limping badly, Bieksa was the last Canuck out of the medical room.
Definitely knew our D would eventually suffer some hits. Unfortunately it comes at the most critical time of year. Concerning that Salo isnt even close to being back too.....

I thought he would be close to coming back?

why fly him to Chicago - on a separate charter as well, and not with the team - if he's not even close to coming back?

Is there any new news on him at all that leads you to suggest that, or are you just speculating?

The team 1040 said that he was just a decoy and that he was not even close to skating properly when he skated in Chicago. I can still see him back for game 5 or 6 though.

So who replaces Bieksa next game? Do we go with Davison or one of the Moose players? Since we have home ice, should we bring up Sauve and have him play sheltered mins and on the point for the PP?

Phew. I was wondering why the Sun had it in every story and the Province made no mention of it.

They showed him skating very gingerly yesterday, wasnt taking any hits or shooting many pucks. Judging by past injuries, I'd say it's a safe bet to assume that he wont be playing for another week.

Thank God Bieksa is okay.
Him and Salo out would mean zero right-handed dmen (unless we call up Baumgartner or Heshka...yikes).
Lots of guys playing their off-side does not help the defensive coverage...

Bieksa has often left the ice looking like he had a serious injury only to come back 2 shifts later.

Not that I believe anything Gillis is saying today.

BIEKSA OKAY, SALO SKATING

The Canucks returned to Vancouver early this morning after yesterday’s overtime loss to the Blackhawks that tied the series at 2-2.

Defenceman Sami Salo skated this afternoon at the team’s optional practice and was joined on the ice by Jannik Hansen, Jeff Cowan, Rob Davison and Jason LaBarbera.

Head coach Alain Vigneault said that Salo remains day to day with a lower body injury.

Defenceman Kevin Bieksa told reporters this morning that he is fine and will be okay to play in Saturday’s Game #5 at GM Place. Bieksa appeared to be in pain after battling for the puck with Samuel Pahlsson in yesterday’s overtime period.

“Lower body injury, it just kind of happened throughout the course of the game, nothing serious,” said Bieksa.

Question is how fast he skated. If he skated like he did on WEdnesday, then LOL.

Probably still had a better skating stride than Cowan.

No update on Salo for tonight - he'll be a game-time decision.

Sami Salo is skating in this morning and looks good. Bieksa doing full drills as well.
That's sounds promising. Even if he doesn't play in this game, sounds like he'll be ready for to go next game.
