Hainsey - Flu
What happened to Dvorak anyway?
Well. While I appreciate our confirmed inside source giving us an update at the time of the injury, he was pretty wrong about Khudobin...
This was an injury that simply took longer to heal than expected. I wouldn't call out the "source" for something like that.
Not calling out the source, he gave the info he was given and I appreciate it.
Just pointing out that we get an inside source for the first time I've ever remembered on these boards, and the info ended up being incorrect.
There are a couple posters here who have some inside connections, though they don't really trumpet it much.
Is Skinner possibly playing tomorrow??
No. As you can read in the OP, he's still practicing in a no-contact jersey.
Did you actually read the report? Muller said he may play.
I wouldn't call it incorrect at all. He told us what the injury was and what the prognosis at the time was. He was correct on what the injury was and correct on what the prognosis was (before official reports came out). This was not his prognosis, but what the team / Dr's said and he relayed that info. The fact that it is taking longer to heal, doesn't take away from that IMO.
Muller seems to be very optimistic when it comes to injuries. I'd be surprised if Skinner went from not practicing for 2 weeks to one non-contact practice (plus a morning skate, which doesn't really count) to game action. Might play tomorrow in St Louis, but I'd bet we don't see him or Cam until next week.
This. Not sure how you can say he was inaccurate at all, blame the Drs/nature of the injury for being inaccurate.
Once again, not calling him incorrect, calling the prognosis we received incorrect, not through fault of the poster but through fault of the doctors (or whoever gave it to him).
Never mind. Clearly the irony is lost. No one thinks it humorous that in one of our rare chances to know what the team knows, his recovery is found to take longer than we both thought?
EDIT: One more attempt at explaining the humor I see, then I'll leave it alone, because I've apparently touched a nerve.
If we, as a fanbase, are just as informed about the Carolina Hurricanes day-to-day operations as Jim Rutherford, are we really all that informed about the day-to-day operations of the Carolina Hurricanes?
The doctors cleared him weeks ago. Khudobin is pulling a Pitkanen.
Ward is backing up tonight but Skinner didn't even skate this morning.
Although it sounded yesterday like this might be what would happen, today the Canes org tweeted that it would be Murphy in the back-up role:
Didn't think it made any sense for Ward to be the backup. Nothing good could come of that.
IMO after these last few games just play Peters until he gives us a reason not to, or Ward is 110%. Hard to argue with what's working against some pretty strong teams.
It tells me they have zero confidence in Mike Murphy so if by chance peters gets hurt, a 75% Ward is better than Murphy.
edit.. see the Murphy is backup.
Yeah, I think everyone just assumed that it would be Ward because Murphy didn't practice. I'll agree that it doesn't make much sense for your starter to be a backup in this scenario. He's already on IR, so it's not like they need to save a roster space or anything.
EDIT: By the way, Muller confirmed the other day that it's Khudobin's ankle.
Skinner won't play this weekend. And contrary to rumor, Ward is not playing either.
Wouldn't expect to have it any other way.
Is Jeff Skinner supposed to come back this week ?
Any news on that ?
Check back tomorrow around noon.
syomin has a concussion #seasonover #ekblad
