I know everyone here wants a top 6 forward, but getting Brewer would be extremely nice especially when everyone comes back. The man can eat up minutes and do responsibly. It would be like getting a second Hamrlik. I really think we need to solidify our D most of all.
They talk about lower-body injury and you guys talk about vertigo, but it was due to a virus of some kind... any confirmations ? I'm more afraid that it could be a concussion... remember the Boyle hit ? It could have taken more time for the symptoms to appear...
I wonder how many stitches that took to close? Lots of blood and some swelling. He has two days to ice it to bring down the swelling and let the pain subside some with pain killers, although that's going to hurt for awhile.
If it's not broken I'm going to guess that he can play Sunday with a face shield and some pain killers.
We need him.
Hamerlik - Subban
Mara - Wizniewski
Picard - Weber
is not a great defence but it's better than what we ended the game with in Edmonton.
If Gill can play Sunday than Picard sits.
Gill - Subban
Hamerlik - Wizniewski
Mara - Weber
is much, much better defensively. Our special teams will be better with Wiz and Gill playing too.
Man, this is ridiculous and depressing. The team was going so well without Gorges and Markov... then one after one, players keep falling. Is it time to pack it up for the season and either sell or keep the status quo? It'd be hard to convince me that being a buyer makes any sense.
