Good news for Colorado.
Never like to see a kid get hurt, even if it could potentially benefit us draft wise.
Should have let him develop in London
Damn that really sucks. Hopefully doesn’t hinder him too much when he’s back.
With the way he plays I am not surprised, so far he looks like a beauty!
That's truly awful. Hopefully he doesn't rush himself and try to get back too soon. Hope he takes his time and heals properly.
Not really, it's a compliment essentially. The truth is this does positively affect the Avs. He didnt say he was happy Tkachuk is hurt.
Better hope he rehabs properly instead of rushing back to play. That style of grit wears and tears at the body, injuries early into the pro career can be pretty serious to nip in the bud. Kid was looking like a real competitor hope hes back soon and no worse for wear.
Never good to see a young high profile player get injured so early in their career, he was well on his way to a Landeskog/Matthew Tkachuk level rookie season.
Fortunately torn ligaments are now considered non career threatening injuries. It is inconvenient. But better now than later in the year. Sens have been a pleasant surprise this year to some. They are better with him for sure.
It's not like he had to have his leg amputated and can never play again, all the guy means is that it is good for Colorado that one of the Sens better producers is out for a month.
the sens already beat the 2019 stanley cup champs without him
Well, that sucks.
time to trade him or did Melnyk find enough money in his piggy bank to pay 5 grand a day to someone that isn't even playing?
will he be able drive before he comes back? maybe he can be the teams uber driver for a bit?
Melnyk must be behind this.
Too bad. He’s been really good and much better than I expected when I’ve seen him play.
Huh? Sens haven’t beaten the Bolts yet
Why? He's been good with Ottawa, certainly doesn't look out of place. It looks like junior probably would have been too easy for him.
You let him develop there so he bulks up and gets used to the grind of an 80+ game season, as well as habituating himself to the systems in London. More body energy/training means less of a chance of these things happening.
Wish him well, don't rush back though. He's our property for the next 7+ years, no need to rush anything.
