Let's take this one step at a time.

The high ankle sprains suffered by Higgins and Crosby (the serious kind) is worth 18 to 21 games (in their cases). That's about 6 or 7 weeks worth of hockey at this time of the year.

Price has been suffering this injury since losing to NJ on december 6th. Seven weeks from that point brings him to the All Star break. However, Price played 4 games in the middle of this stretch. So most likely he comes back at the AS break, or worse mid February.

I know mid February sounds bad, but it really isn't considering the break in the middle.

Halak is no Price.. but I'm more than comfortable going with him as our starting goalie for awhile.

Let Price come back at 110%.

It really can't be that serious. Or else he wouldn't even be trying to skate or trying lateral movements.

you negate the fact that he was on the ice for 14 minutes.
and besides the lateral mouvements everything else in the report was negative.

I dont know what your trying to prove with this.

He is hurt, he has played 4 games in the last 6 weeks. Obviously its serious enough.

Ok just get the words "high ankle sprain" out of the conversation. It's not that. A high ankle sprain is very serious and you're not doing anything for weeks with that injury. Price was in the crease this morning.

How can it not be serious when your back-up goalie has been your number one for the last month plus?

And no, if we were losing they would rush there number 1 goalie into the mix to salvage a few points here and there, risking further injury. Obviously they rushed him in too quickly once already.

If he was remotely healthy he would play sat and tues seeing as they are two huge games for us.

He was on the ice for 70 minutes this morning doing drills with Melancon and the physical therapist.

I hope it's not his groin again. Look at Gaborik..it's almost as if those never fully heal...

He was on the ice at 10:40 when I arrived, and now, at 10:54, he's off. The ice isn't badly scratched up, so he wasn't out there long.

Stubbs makes it clear that he saw him skating for 14 minutes and it was underway when he got there...so it was definitely more than 14.

Don't kid yourself, there's no way the Habs would allow Price, their franchise player, skate and make lateral movements if his injury wasn't getting better.

TSN and RDS were saying it's groin.

This proves that nobody knows.

yes that is PROOF.

Luongo has been rehabing with his team for weeks, its not the same injury, but he participates in drills and practices. And his return is imminent.

Price hasnt seen any shots since the Tampa game, meaning his return is still some time away. Groin, ankle, whatever he is a few weeks away

you could see it the way you want. it also says :

Price continues to rehab what's reported to be an ankle injury, and is still listed as day-to-day. He was doing a few lateral-movement drills in the crease. And for what it's worth, he was in the new red pads that he'l wear in the All-Star Game, colour coordinated to the Eastern Conference jersey.

so he's still expecting to be part of the all-stars game

Luongo hasn't been practicing at all. He's been skating and doing controlled lateral movements. Luongo is still expected to return after the all-star game. If it is indeed a groin injury, which seems to be very plausible given the frequency of the injury this year, coupled with the fact that he had been playing through a flu, which is tough on muscles, he'll likely take it slow. If he doesn't, he'll have the same setback that Luongo did.

There is a big difference between lateral movements and dynamic movements.

Looks like Halak will be holding the torch for awhile....

sigh
he did it wonderfully well when Huet went down 2 years ago, so Im not worried at all.. When Halak feels everyone is behind him, he can be a dominant goaltender!

You are also exaggerating how bad it might be. For all we know he has an alcohol problem and that's why he's been kept out. Until we hear something, let's not speculate. That is the problem in Montreal to begin with....

That's bad news though. Here's hoping that Price returns sooner than later.
If Price misses the all-star game, he definitely needs to be replaced by Gorges.

Le gardien Carey Price a patiné avec son équipement avant la séance d'entraînement. Si tout se déroule comme prévu, il sera de retour avec ses coéquipiers lundi.

If everything goes well and according to plan, Price will be back at practice with his teammates on Monday.
