Injury Update Thread (Gio Skates/Hammer Questionable)

Injury update as of 12-21

Habs-

Gionta- Broken foot, back on the ice skating, day to day

Hammer- Questionable, will be on the road trip

Dogs-

Olivier Fortier- Out till at least Feb.

Danny Massé- Knee, could be back in 3-4 weeks .

Michael Busto- Tricep out 4 weeks


Juniors/NCAA-
Steve Quailer- Heard he's all but listed as out for the rest of the year. Nothing official though, he will likely be redshirted, so it just means that they don't count this year, so he can stilll play 3 more years if he wants to. Brock Trotter was redshirted in his first year.

Andrei Kostitsyn - broken heart, cause he's separated from his baby brother

Georges Laraque - bruised ego for being put in the stands

Hal Gill - limited in his movements on ice by a very slow cerebral cortex

Come on. If you would be as tall as Gill, it would take a lot of time for your brain signals to get to your feet too.

actually i remember hearing that hal gill could be a math teacher if he wasnt in the nhl... so the problem is his body, not his brain.

Bergeron's childhood idol was Brisebois, wich he would imitate in every way on the ice.

That should explain it all..

Markov IR and the Olympics

A quick pessimistic thought.

Markov is 95% come the week before Vancouver 2010. The habs doctors say "We will not clear you". Markov gets evaluated by a second party (which he is allowed) and this second party doctor (crazy Dr. Nick Russian) clears him to play in the olympics; and he plays and aggravates the injury and is out for the remainder of the season.

Possible? VERY

Yeah, I heard that he wants to be able to play for Team Russia.

I don't see how he can aggravate that type of injury, unless he suffers another cut in the same spot ? By that time, it should be practically healed and he'll have trouble re-adjusting to the speed, so it should just hurt Team Russia.

I would imagine there,s a chance albeit an extremely small chance he stresses the tendon causing it to snap since it might not be fully healed...

Habs-
Markov- The only thing I heard was on TSN the other night when they said Markov told them he wants to play for Team Russia in Feb and that he was expected back in January.

January seem too good to be true

Because he values playing for his country high? If he feels he's ready, he'll go.

Yes that is true. In this perspective I see him trying to play. I can understand players wanting to represent their country. But I doubt he'll want to put himself in harms way if he doesn't feel ready. That's all I'm saying. Players know they can get injured in any game, its a risk.

I agree as far as aggravting the injury is concerned; but if habs say "NO YOU CAN'T GO" and he does, are there future issues?

Can you see the Habs wanting to keep him out if he is just coming off of injury?

No, I doubt the team tries to stop him from going and playing for his country. He may get advice on how to avoid injuries and get warnings from doctors. But I doubt the organization tells him not to go, that could be taken as an insult.

Hope you're right. Because I forsee this as being an issue between: HABS / NHL V MARKOV / NHLPA / RUSSIAN FEDERATION.

The only entity with common interests is Markov....I feel his loyalties lie with Russia.

Markov is 95% come the week before Vancouver. The Habs doctor say ''We will not clear you''. Markov gets evaluated by a second doctor and clears him. He plays and gets better game after game.
NHL starts again and he makes his presence felt right away.

Possible? JUST AS MUCH.

Btw, I don't think anybody in the NHL wouldn't play for their National Olympic team if they were 95% healthy. So, if Markov is 95% good, I'll be cheering for him in the Olympics.

double negative??? The question is this:

If Habs doctors say no.

and

Russian Doctors say yes

Are you

a) Angry he played, hopes he doesn't get injured?

b) Happy he played, North American medicine is behind the times anyways?

c) Hope the Habs suspend him; freakin' Ruskie!

d) Hope he doesn't get injured?

e) Indifferent, Go LEAFS Go?

Well, it's just going to reflect negatively for the habs.

1) Other players will see that the organization doesn't value outside opinions on medical problems and won't let a player, who probably prefers playing for his country over his team go do so.

2) He's a top defenseman in the league and if they get mad over this and suspend him, or whatever, he will ask for a trade and we'll get close to jack **** for him mainly because he's unhappy and every team will know that.

3) The team losses its best player for the past... 3 years ?

If he wants to go and he feels he can play, he'll go and he'll play and he'll play for the habs after. If the organization does anything to try and prevent him, or suspend him, or anything like that, well... you, me and everyone else cheers for a team with a completely retarded group of individuals running it.

Sergei Kostitsyn is a talented kid, but just a punk kid who hasn't proved jack, so if he's unhappy, let him. Markov, can't make that guy unhappy.

I agree with you wholeheartedly, but....IF the habs doctors are certain he isn't ready, and Markov gets a 3rd party Russian doctor. Wouldn't you be just a bit skeptical?

It wouldn't matter though, because as you basically said Markov holds all the cards.....That kinda worries me.
