Souray.

Get him out of the lineup before he injures himself.

It was quite obvious that he does not have the same movement that he did prior to getting injured. I hope the FO/Coaching Staff sees this. We can't afford to roll the dice and lose on this one.

It looked painful. He had real problems turning and he got abused by the Devils all night.

Get him out of the lineup and bring him back maybe if he is capable a couple of games before the playoffs start.

I'll agree. Souray looked pretty bad out there. Even when he got a clear shot on the powerplay, he hesitated to shoot.

He just needs time.

However, Komisarek looks better and better.

Yeah he looked shaky last night, but you gotta admit, Komisarek has been playing amazing alongside him. I'd be a little hesitant in taking him out, see how he does in a couple more games.

i'll second that. No need to overuse him though. Just slowly get him back in shape. Now is the best time for him to get his timing back. half a dozen games before playoff should be enough.

He needs to get back in shape and he needs to play for that. Bulis was shaky too against the Avs. He needs all of the games to get back in shape, dont worry guys.

He may be fine and just over compensating for the injury. He has had such bad luck with injuries that he may have that in the back of his mind, and it will affect your game if you play and think that way. Once he knows he is 100% and can compete he will play like he did in the earlier parts of the year before the injury.

I'm sure he is fine, the Habs didn't need to rush him back..he has stated that himself in past interviews before his return.

Souray is coming back from an injury and played two games in two nights, I can understand if he didn't look good since these games are now playoff caliber games. You can't expect him to go back to the Norris-caliber hockey he was playing before his injury right away. He will probably get one or two days off since our next game is only wednesday. I think we will see a much better Souray against Buffalo. I don't see a need to push the panic button on Souray's case. It took some time to Koivu to find his groove back after his injury earlier this season. Give the guy some time.

Don't panic! Pavel Bure had severals injuries to knees that were 5 times more bad than that and he returned to scores the 50goals & more seasons...

Same thing with Saku Koivu.

Souray injury is nothing compare to those nasty injuries...He have 6-7 games to adapt before the playoffs, plenty of games!

Souray will be fine. They just need to cut his ice time for the time being to let him get his rythm back. 6 games should be more than enough. In the mean time give komo more ice time, and let the kid play.

Just my two cents!

He did look a little slow last night, but it could be because he hasn't played for about a month and needs to get his legs back. He should be fine. The team doesn't play again until something like tuesday or wednesday, so hopefully those few days should give him the litle extra time to practise himself back into shape.

I thought it was interesting when he squared off with Brown during the scrum, Brown looked like he wanted to fight, but Souray said something to him. He clearly didn't seem interested. Souray doesn't normally do that. Lingering effects from the knee?

Aphotic, is that you with the inflatable doll ? Years ago they were called Judy dolls, or so I've heard, but I digress. I think Souray is just getting his game conditioning back. I trust that that CJ wouldn't use him if he was risking injury. I suspect that he didn't fight Brown because it was explained to him back in January that his place was on the ice and every push and facewash doesn't have to be avenged with the gloves off. Brown is aware that trading himself for Souray is a good deal for his team.

If management felt bringing Souray back at this time jepordized his long term performance (playoffs) they wouldn't of brought him back when they did. The way the team was doing and the fact that the playoff spot was pretty much a lock, it doesn't make any sense for them to rush him back, and I'm sure management/coaching staff/medical staff know that. The last thing management is doing right now is rushing players back from injuries.

With that being said, alot of times when a player comes back from injury it takes a game or two or three to get back to the point where he was before the injury. I remember hearing the number a game per week missed, so.......
