injury clinic that is....
Surprised that we don't have a thread for this. Probably a good thing since it probably would have crashed the server.
Michalek is undergoing knee surgery in NY. Sens are hoping to have him back for the playoffs.
Should probably have gotten the surgery done a month ago.
whoops, sorry. I thought this said free clinic.
i believe I said I smelled surgery in 9mm's near future. got to wonder if he'll ever be right again.
Ehhm Homer, maybe opening this Underground Clinic caused some bad luck....
Seems Methot is in our clinic as well. I'm very sorry for him. Also for the team cause it will be hard to fill up these minutes as well. What I would be really sorry for though is, if Methot's day-to-day turns out to be like Anderson's, that Murray has to offer up a piece of our future (be it a pick or a prospect) just to help out this season.
I know, I was thinking the same thing.
On a different note... Boy am I glad spring is here.
I hate you all so much.
The windchill was -35 this morning. MINUS THIRTY FIVE
SD, those sunny photos were from last March. It's not -35, but got about 15cm of snow yesterday.
Lundin and Dziurzynski were both on the ice today for practice. Methot, Gonchar, Phillips, Alfredsson and Latendresse were not.
....and SD, if you click on the small pictures below the big one in the article that Homer linked to, you can see what the comparison is between last years 25C heatwave and this years we've-still-got-a-crapload-of-snow looks like.
ha ha sorry... I just... was so angry when I woke up this morning and saw the -35. Good to see the rest of the country (except probably Vancouver and Toronto) is as disappointed at spring than we are.
I think last year at this time all our snow was gone too
trying to find spring this year is like trying to find an African-American girlfriend with Tiger Woods.
Russell, don't be racist. That's your first warning. It should be your 15725353729th warning, but it is your first.
hey, its not racist. the man seems to have an eye for blondes, that's all. but point taken about my count getting up there. go figure you did the math on that one.
How did this turn from a clinic into a weather channel into a 'am-not/am-too'-shout match about racism? All within 10 posts?
Was that you Homer, trying to get rid of the curse of the Underground Clinic?
OK back to clinic talk then... Does anyone know anything on Anderson? At first I was like, "Oh, he'll back in a week or so." Then, "Oh he can't be out more than a month" Now it's like, "uh... what happened to this guy?"
The team has been pretty tight-lipped about Anderson, especially of late. He did a few "twirls of the ice" (Coach's term) but I haven't heard much since then. I'm not sure if I can read anything into the change from "day-to-day" to "indeterminate" as an injury status.
Add Gonchar to the clinic; no word on why he left the game in the 3rd period other than he'll be reevaluated tomorrow. If we need another D from Bingo, I'm not sure who it'll be as Borocop is hurt. Lebda? Eckford?
I think we're down to Brad Marsh on the depth chart.
better than Kravchuck
Kravchuck would fit with the team's current trend of difficult names to spell/pronounce, but I think Neckar would be a better fit in that regard.
Still can't believe that they traded Steve Duchesne for Igor Kravchuck...
We might decide it's better to close the Underground Clinic, nothing but bad luck.
Now Gonchar? Come on!
If we closed it, where would Ivan White go to get his penicillin?
@RussellYou've got a point there. Well doesn't Toronto have something like 'A Foot in the Clinic' or something?
Craig Anderson is out on the ice in full gear and working with Rick Walmsley.
how lucky are we that Andy is close to returning and we can be like, ennh, whatever. take your time. we haven't even missed our starting goalie! how many teams could say that?
@RussellWith you there. Imagine if we had Elliot and Gerber or something. Yikes. In that case Andy couldn't come back soon enough. Injured or not, just save us! Now goaltending is the least of our worries.
