If he doesn't go to the All-Star game I hope we trade him even though he's my favorite player ever, this's just getting to me he's pure,PURE ******** injury prone the guy can't play close to 80 games not a player you want on your team yes he said he likes it here and everything but too bad he barley plays hockey.
Who do you think would trade for such a player?
What would be a realistic return at this point? A second round pick?
Every team has their own version of Marion Gaborik.
Bad foot, ankle, knee, groin is one thing. Yeah, you miss some games.
Head trauma like concussions has a much deeper impact on a persons life in general. A friend of my wife had a bad concussion from hockey, it messed up her ability to work for 6 months and she was dealing with difficult symptoms the whole time. Even after she didn't feel 100%.
he is the oilers samuel l jackson.... and no not the bad ass. he's mr. glass. its god awful how injured he always is. not only does his circling the net 5 times before he gives away the puck on errant passes in the offensive zone, doesn't shoot enough, he is always injured. he's nor reliable. he shows flashes of brilliance but its a flash in the pan thing. he's also inconsistent and i never understood why people liked him. i've been saying trade him since 06 and still stand by it.
Smid had neck surgery never a good thing.Loss of feeling in the hands means there is a problem in the neck.I know this because I had the same issue.I was helped immensely by prolotherapy and triggerpoint injections.
And once again, to all those "We must resign Hemmer no matter what" supporters, I state again, why would you want to keep a guy that spends more time in the infirmary than on the ice these days? I will say again. The guy is injury prone. We need to cut bait with him and get what we can while the going is what it is. We need guys that can play most of an entire season on this team.
