And after one game, I come looking for the injury thread
Wonder what Macy's injury is? Was there a play where he got hit in the offensive zone and was slow to get up?
I remember late in the game, I saw Raymond go down in their corner, and the play came back the other way without him and I was worried. However, then the camera moved left again and Raymond was there so I thought all was well...
It sure didn't take long to see the ramifications of the Canucks not dressing a nuclear deterent to match Kevin Westgarth. At this rate we're not going to have anyone healty by game 10 of the regular season. Doughty just creamed Bolduc once he realized Darcy Hordichuk was in Florida - you wouldn't have seen that last year when we possessed nuclear arms.
It's time to load the cannon with Andrew Peters.
Now that we go out and solidify the defense with 2 of the most durable defenders in the sport is it time for the forward corps to get riddled with injuries? As a Canuck fan I wouldn't have it any other way.
Those are tricky. Although, he seemed stable in his last few shifts.
Then again, he only took 3 short shifts in the 3rd after taking 5 shifts in each of the previous 2 periods.
It's the re-hab that's difficult. The area will be completely healed but there is a sense of weakness there for a long time. The rehabbing is what gets players back in 3 weeks rather then a couple months.
How bad was Rypien at C? Maybe a line with Schaefer, Glass and Rypien could work. For five to eight minutes a game.
We seem stocked enough with PKers that we don't really need all those guys to do that. Kesler-Hansen, Malhotra-Shaefer, Raymond-Glass once in a while.
I don't want Perrault to be anything more than a short term injury replacement. Don't like his game at all. I'd rather give Bliznak a shot at settling into the pace of the NHL.
