    TB's announced that Hedman has a "lower-body injury", and won't return tonight.

    Would be a huge loss for them.

    After Hedman, Stralman and the currently-sheltered Sergachev, there's not much to like about that Tampa defense.

    Hedman may be Tampa's second most important player, after Vasilevsky

    The silence is deafening on the Hedman front. Can't be good news. They must have finished tests by now.

    Tampa has announced that Hedman will be out 3-6 weeks with a "lower-body injury".

    All in all, that actually seems like pretty good news for them.

    Given the video of the injury & the recovery time, it seems like it's probably an MCL sprain.

    Great news for them.

    League has done a terrific job creating rules to protect the knees of players. There used to be several players who specifically targeted knees and those hits were deemed legal. Shit has changed.

    Talbot gives up two early goals and he is done for the night.

    Is he just having a bad year? Playing behind a bad D? Or is he just not good enough?

    Jack Johnson has requested a trade.

    Odd considering where Columbus are in the standings

    From the story in the athletic... he basically wants to go to a team where he can have a bigger role. He need to show his worth for him next contract because of his financial situation.
    When my time comes, I want to be burried face down, so that anyone that doesn't like me can kiss my ass.

    How many staples did they put in his head? 13?,” Leiweke asks, getting more animated. “They sewed his head back together and he never missed a minute. He literally yelled at our trainer ‘Band-aid it, I’m going back in’. This is who we are at MLSE now, Michael Bradley."

    Is he playing bottom pairing minutes?

    I barely noticed him in the game a week ago

    Used to be the too defender but now is 2nd pairing at best with jones and werenski. They were close to a multi year deal in August but that didn't get over the line.

    I feel for the guy, getting screwed over by your parents is rough.

    Johnson-savard were huge for the bjs last year but have been pretty bad this year.

    depends on whether they feel Dubois and Jenner are legit centers or not.

    I guess I don't really know. Is Johnson any good? Or is he an upgrade over any of the multitude of left-handed defensemen we've already got?

    I kind of doubt it.

    Nope, you're thinking of Erik.
