    Best wishes for a recovery without complications but the rest of the team is going to have to step up big time if we are to avoid another basement year. We will see how good the kids can do, that is for sure.

    Here's to a speedy and complete recovery. He must have been really pushing the weights to tear a pectoral, that's usually a football player offseason injury. This plays havoc with the lineup. Not ideal to force feed Nico or McLeod into that role. Maybe Zacha plays in that spot for now?

    You know, injuries are gonna happen on the team. Zajac was a guy who never got injured when our center depth was pretty bad

    The good thing is that our center depth is very deep with Henrique, Hischier, Zacha and McLeod. It will let the youngsters get more playing time in their natural position along with getting more minutes instead of being sheltered on the 4th line.

    Damn. Looking at half the season, maybe a hair less if we're lucky.

    We were always going to have injury trouble and that was always going to create depth problems, but this still sucks.

    Speaks to importance of keeping a guy like Rico around. Would he be better s a winger? Yeah probably, but he can play C.

    Sorry to hear it folks.

    At least Henrique now becomes somewhat fantasy-relevant in deep pools.

    He probably saw that picture of Greene in the new uniforms and said "**** this".

    At this rate we won't even have to try to fall for him.

    Although it could open up more of an opportunity for one of the kids, which might not be the worst thing in the end.

    Not Good. A chance perhaps for someone to step it up.

    You think Mojo steps into the first line center role? I don't advocate throwing Nico there at all.

    I'd rather Henrique play center than MoJo and I'm not a fan of Henrique at center. Might as well go Henrique-Zacha-Hischer/McLeod down the middle and go from there.

    It means someone else has to find chemistry with Hall too.

    Rico, Nico, McLeod, and Zacha should all get looks while we wait for Zajac.

    This news absolutely sucks, but the silver lining might be a kid taking the role and running with it.

    He could but I think Rico gets first dibs on that role.

    Zacha might get a chance too. This could end up being a huge opportunity for him in disguise.

    Of course it is possible Nico just muscles his way in there and runs with it. I wouldn't force it on him, but if he earns it who are we to say no?

    Looks like Rico's in the middle again this year. Good thing we signed Boyle.
