Hilarious link posted right here in the forum . It's a must see. hahaha
TJ Hensick had four points in the AHL All-Star Game. The Avs called him up today.
Michel Ouellet was back in full practice yesterday for the Lightning. His return is imminent, but I don't know if it will be next game or the one after. He practiced on the fourth line, though.
Joffrey Lupul is back skating again and anticipates that he will be able to return to the lineup in about two weeks.
Henrik Zetterberg's back is improving and he hopes to play in Wednesday's contest, but will make a decision today or tomorrow.
Sergei Zubov will be out for "weeks" instead of days. He is definitely on the shelf for this week and will be re-evaluated early next week. He has a sore foot, but they still are not saying if it is broken.
Paul Stastny will probably be back on the ice today, but will need at least a week to get his strength and conditioning back. A return late next week looks promising.
The Sharks recalled Setoguchi, Vlasic, Plihal and Greiss from Worcester.
Radek Bonk will return to the Nashville lineup tonight. Darcy Hordichuk is questionable.
David Legwand is out for tonight and questionable for Thursday. Jordin Tootoo is out for this week and likely beyond…
Ray Emery was late for practice again yesterday, by four minutes, and there is quite the hubbub about it in Ottawa. He went to the wrong arena (on Long Island), is the reason that he gives. Glean from this what you will. While I think it's a problem, it is not the nuclear holocaust that the media is making it out to be.
There's even a POLL in the Ottawa Sun about whether he should be WAIVED!! LOL. "Yes" is winning by a large margin. Click here to vote "no" to that stupidity.
Patrick Eaves (shoulder) will not play tonight.
Dan Fritsche will be back in the Columbus lineup tonight.
TSN is reporting that Maxim Afinogenov is hoping to return by the end of this week. Tim Connolly, however, is looking at offseason surgery to repair a bone spur in his hip. He is out indefinitely and will be playing through pain when he does return. Maybe next season Connolly can stay healthy (yeah, right).
My article yesterday for the Hockey News is the Top 15 fantasy surprises. Check it out…
If you didn't check in later yesterday in the ramblings, I had several things added throughout the afternoon, including my own thoughts on Teemu's return. At the bottom, click "next" to check it out (in case you are new to the site).
