3 concussions isn't really the concern - there probably isn't many hockey players who haven't suffered at least 2 concussions at some point. It's the timing and severity that really cause problems. I've personally suffered two concussions, but it's been years since the last one so a concussion at this point would essentially be the same as my first concussion (not that I'd like to suffer that concussion).

Still, it's a personal concern for Hamhuis, and far better he draw the line somewhere than suffer far too many like Eric Lindros did.

Yeah...over this last little stretch, Rome's looked good. These are the times we got him for - a #7 defenceman who can play decent minutes well for short stretches when injuries pile up.

I like Gumby myself, for Ballard. Seems to fit in with his jokester personality a bit better.

Torres was nursing his shoulder after throwing a hit last night; hopefully just a stinger, he's come to play the last few games.

Torres not practicing. sounds like a trade in the works. my sources tell me there's just a few details to work out, but also say the deal could fall through.

Can we get an a4 on that? Or is it more like an a3? I've been too busy tracking on a different possible deal back East.

I don't want to know what a "burner" is after a night at the Roxy.

I wonder if there's been any unofficial news on Edler. I imagine if he were ahead of schedule they'd keep it quiet as to not run into cap issues. Gillis did say yesterday on after hours that we will have all of our dmen back for game 1 of the playoffs, and the commentator during the game said (although I doubt he has an inside tip) that all of our injured dmen will be back in March.

I think were missing Edler more than most of us know. He is our only dman that can really take over a game by himself.

Nope.

Which is why I believe even if he were ahead of schedule it'd be kept relatively quiet. I have a feeling he'll be back and in game shape for game 1, round 1.

Just wondering.

Is Bieksa still the whipping boy around here? I noticed he is +26.
Or has his play improved drastically and is now one of your better defensemen?

I still rag on him but most people are pretty thrilled with him this year.

Re: Trauma room: Did anyone else poop a brick when Salo didn't participate in the breakaway event yesterday? I was frantically scanning the benches to make sure he was still alive.
