Souray is hurting- TV 'evidence'.

Not sure if you guys noticed on TV in Game 2 (I was watching it on ESPN because I was in the States), but at one point early in the game Souray was on the bench with his gauntlet off and the camera just flashed towards the Habs bench and you could see that Souray had his right wrist wrapped tightly in an ace-like bandage underneath his light blue long sleeve shirt.

He's definitely hurt, you can just see it in how he doesn't shoot as hard as he did before the All Star Game. Our concern is that he has not seriously re-injured his surgical wrist because if that's the case I would not be surprised if he has to call it a career- others have had to with similar reoccurring wrist injuries. As we all know, a healthish Souray is a big part of our D for the coming years, along with Markov, Komi, Rivet, and perhaps Hainsey.

One last thing: Tampa Bay has been awfully impressive in keeping the Habs to the outside and not letting us get shot from the slots. That said, crashing the net (ie. Ryder) and putting some pressure on their D will go a long way towards opening things up. As good as Tampa's been, we have not really tested them yet (except for Period 2). Kiprusoff (who's been unbelievable) played a stellar Game 1 and Detroit made his life miserable in Game 2 by planting some guys in front and making him move side to side. That's what we got to do.

I agree, I think he is too. How can a guy go from being a noris candidate to a 5th D??

You cant, I mean people slack off, but to Souray's degree........

His left wrist looks a lot like a cast to me. Regardless, he's playing really, really bad.

Sure does, but that certainly must effect your game. The thing that scares me though is if Souray wrist is that fragile, is he worth keeping???

That moustache of his is too much!

Kovalev is the only player sensible enough not to grow one of those ridiculous cowslop moustaches.

I think his wrist just need time to heal- i.e. the summer. If he was severely hurt or if it endangered his career I really don't think he would play. I mean, would you sacrifice your career for one playoff run? His wrists probably a little banged up, and it is obviously affecting him, but let him rest this summer.

I was thinking the same thing. I can't imagine Anjelica's too fond of it.

The problem I have with this whole situation is:

If he is indeed hurting and it's seriously affecting his play this much, why is he playing so much? He's obviously not playing the kind of hockey he can play, cut his minutes down and hope he can be more effective playing 15-17 minutes a night. CJ needs to stop thinking he's the players of early season and must realise that Souray is hurting us playing so many minutes.

I expect a huge game from him tomorrow. Anything less would be uncivilized.

Ya i agree, he should be playing less minutes.

I think the pairings should be changed as well though.

Markov, Komo, 20+ minutes
Rivet, Cube, 15 minutes
Souray, Breezy, 10-15 minutes. Give Souray pp time.

Sourays wrist have been wrapped all season, that isn't new evidence or speculation on an injury.

Plus in the fight it is his elbow pad, it has come down his arm in the fight. Most fighters try to get their elbow pads off so they can throw better punches.

Souray is hurt, but I think it maybe more his knee than his wrist. He would have never jeaprodize his career in a fight if his wrist was hurt...he went through enough agony the past 2 years with that already.

I really think it is his knee.

souray is injured, but it's not the wrist. He suffers from a brain injury because this guy is really playing like a dumbass. He doesn't have a clue what he's doing on the ice. It's incredible all the bad decisions he takes on the ice. Pathetic..........

...a little harsh? I know he hasn't played well, but we have lost due to a lack of goals too. Everyone needs to pick up their game tomorrow night in Montreal.

GO HABS GO!!!

Agreed. I think that's all that's needed to open the floodgates
