If we lose Nicky, we have no one that can center the top two lines.

cause for concern, yes. but life goes on and they will have to find a way.

that said, last night's precaution and this morning's migrane is troubling. sounds a lot like backstrom is going to be out for a period of time.
this is where the caps policy of no information is a killer. beagle wanted to come back in the game and his not practicing was purely a precaution. then he didnt play for 35 games or such.

based on that backstrom is out for the season. too bad the caps cant be straight with us.

I don't like the sound of that.

But I don't believe migraines are caused by physical contact. Just own up to it and say his ****ing head hurts. The concussion test won't lie and neither should the team.

GDMFPOS

EDIT: Oh i see now its a small concussion/migraine. Inching closer to the truth.

What a bunch of ****ing Nellies.

Isn't there a league mandate that you have to chill in the quiet room after a hit like that? Christ.

It's a mandate that hasn't been followed at all, though. Understandable for a hit like this where the game is practically over and he only got two shifts afterward, but the quiet room has become something of a joke around the league for how many concussed players never seem to end up there.

That said, plenty of cases where the symptoms have a bit of a delayed onset so it's not totally surprising.

I was hoping for better news. Maybe that will still come too. Bummer.

On the bright side maybe something positive is found with some rearranged line combos.

But get back quickly, Nick.

Center depth is not a strength of this team. Let's hope 19 is back soon and fully healthy.

Got my tickets got my tickets got my tickets.... The downside to no longer being in the area.

But hopefully new schedule means I'm guaranteed two games or more per year.

WRT Backstrom. Sucks. The outcome will be interesting. I think Shanny is going to nail him. Too many things line up especially since we dont know extent of injury.

That was clearly intent to injure. Hopefully he gets 8 games.

I highly doubt this is a Beagle situation and he misses 30 games. The Caps only have two games in the next week so Nicky has plenty of time to get the cobwebs out.

God damnit. Migraine is not a word I wanted to hear. Hope I'm not overreacting here.
He's had Migraine's in the past. Not the end of the world, day or so problem (I know, I get them). As long as its not a concussion.

Bourque should be suspended. That was blatant for the head. If he had done that to Crosby?

He's Perreault with less speed. I mean, an admirable warm body for a game or two but still...

Maybe Ovi battling the CBus chief punk helped fire him up. Whatever it takes to win. If you aren't mad, you aren't trying your hardest - words from a famous philosopher whose name eludes me.

If Ovi spit in his face, he was mad. He scored two goals right after that. Dorsett shouldnt have hit him dirty if he didnt like it.

I like mad captains.

Cue Tex for his rebuttal.

I assume this is for the upcoming L.A. game? Will you be sitting in the first row directly behind the Caps bench, so we can all watch you eat the healthy nachos smothered in microwave heated cheese wiz.
