Missing major parts of two straight seasons, gotta wonder if we seriously start questioning if we re-sign him or not
Hoping for a Bodnarchuk call up, but expecting Schultz.
Surprised Carter hasn't been placed on LTIR, he's not currently with the team and it will have been 10 games since his injury before we're back in LA.
No it won't he just missed his 4th game last night. And it's 10 games AND 24 days.
Bod's will probably get the call up, and he deserves it.
He is probably Manchester's best Defender.
We could possibly have 3 or 4 players who could be out for a long time. The only one that concerns me is the possible long term injury to Quick.
Yep. And the injuries are really piling up now for the team.
I would Still resign Greene, not going to find another D guy like him (none in the system ether).
The injuries drive down his contract demands, also when healty he is a damn fine number 5/6.
His injuries are not chronic, they have been unlucky one's like J-Dub.
Knowing Lombardi, he'll see this as a bargaining chip.
I said it before, what i've gotten was that it's a torn muscle underneath his right under arm. Don't know exactly, but that's what I've gotten from watching him.
Wouldn't surprise me at all. He tend to use that arm to knock guys down, almost like his signature way of taking guys out.
Well at this point putting Ellerby on waivers to make room for Toffoli and Vey seems to be about the dumbest move DL's made since the Cloutier debacle... And yeah I'm 100% serious on that comment.
Had to figure one of Mitchell, Regehr or Greene would need a day off at some point and now THIS. Just mind-bogglingly bad roster management.
Oh I should specify; in hindsight.
Yea I didn't like the move at the time and really don't now. I'd much rather have Ellerby in than Schultz.
How many teams regularly carry 8D?
We were kind of forced into making a move just to get down to the 7D that is normal. It's not like he cut the team to 6D.
With the cap going down it has made making any trades much harder because most teams need to go dollar for dollar or close to it. And the move to 7D was going to come sooner or later. You plan for a player missing a day maybe a week not them going on to LTIR. Having 8D was eating very valuable cap space.
In order for it to be a bad move, Ellerby would have to be a useful player, which he isn't.
Having Martinez and Muzzin in the lineup is fine, as long as they're managed properly. Now if Mitchell goes down, THEN we have problems.
Well, hoping for good news but being on LTIR isn't good, that's a good chunk of time and leaves the Kings a bit slim on D.
Unless they know something about Greene's injury already and are shopping around to trade for a D.
Thanks for the update ,TG
With the uncertainty involving Mitchell and his knee, and Greene and Martinez missing as much time as they did last year? The absolute right call was to carry 8 d for as long as they could. Carter going on ir didn't force anything to be done at all.
Poor Greene. 2nd year in a row on LTIR. It's gotta be so frustrating
Green and Cliffy now give us a ton of room.
We'll almost certainly be making a trade now.
