Thank God atleast Grabo isn't injured on that play, and Bozak is returning from his wrist injury. That would've been devastating.

What's wrong with him anyway?

I know he crashed in the boards pretty hard in practice, but we were told that it was just precautionary and that he would be good to go for opening day, at the very very least.

So much for him looking forward to the fresh start.

I heard that on Connolly's bobblehead night they're going with Porcelain dolls...

So who plays more games this season? Connolly or Lombardi?

I'm I disapointed? Very much so. Am surprised? Not in the least. We all knew this was coming. This guy is the definition of useless. Very very stupid signing by Burke. A truly pathetic at trying to rush this rebuild in order to make the playoffs. For every good thing Burke does, he does one equally bad thing to cancel it out.

I am so pissed about this because initially remember what Wilson said? That it is only a minor injury and he would play if it was the regular season. And now it is the regular season and he is still not ready.

This makes no sense. If you think Connolly is a bad stop-gap measure that rushes the rebuild, you should be happy he's not playing, because that's like not having him at all.

Can't say I'm surprised. We knew what we got ourselves into signing him, and Buffalo fans warned us thoroughly.

Hopefully he can play sooner rather than later.

I'm actually pissed that connolly could not return to the lineup. I thought he said it was minor and that he would 100% be ready. Now look, I think connolly will dissapoint us. Oh well, atleast we have our first!

It makes perfect sense. I'm not happy that Connolly is here. However, if he is here, we are better off with him in the line-up than without him.

This. Wilson said he would've played if it was regular season game.

I am as upset right now as Lloyd Christmas was when he said "What was that one in a million talk all about?" Also, given the reality, that also shows the optimism I had

Meh, so he's going to miss 1-2 games, it's not that huge a deal is it? Over-reacting because it's the opening game. Is it somehow better missing two games with a bruised hand in December, or would we freak out over that too?

This is a situation where wilson is screwed no matter what he says.

Blame this issue on TC being injury prone, nothing else.

After not getting Richards, BB should have looked to get a Centre thru a trade and not waste money on Connolly, clearly he panicked!!!!

@LeafRocket Too soon to say. His injury doesn't seem too serious so I would think sooner rather than later. Just not by Thursday.

You cant just "make a trade"

Bottom line is the best centre available was available for free, but we didnt put in an offer that was going to get the job done.

Not really sure how we ever plan to get a top line centre, unless we luck out in a late round pick that develops.

It might be better for him to miss the first couple of games and take that week off and then come back 100%. If he plays hurt, he'll have to listen to a week full of garbage from reporters and fans about how him and Kessel aren't the supposed match made in heaven.

But technically he is not here due to the injury. So therefore you are happy? Or you're unhappy because you think he can help the team but he is injured? But if you're unhappy because you think he can help the team, why are you unhappy he is here?

lol that didnt take long. poor guy, cant catch a break.

i think its pretty obvious that wilson moves bozak up. he has looked much quicker so far this pre season and he has lupul with him this time round as well. say what you want but lupul is like gretzky compared to crabb.

its a bummer about kadri because we need another skilled winger with mac out and im not sure there is any one we can really call up? maybe damigo? maybe burke throws him a bone to motivate him?

or maybe wilson goes off the grid.....


kulemin grabs kessel
frattin bozak armstrong
damigo lombardi lupul
brown dupuis orr
