With Hamhuis out, there goes one of the potential Olympic replacements, too.

Holy shit, he had a stroke and it's been discovered he's had a hole in his heart since birth:

Blood thinners and expected to be able to play in six weeks. Not career threatening, but absolutely bizarre.

Holy crap. My first thought was Vertigo. Hopefully he can recover...

I've said I can't stand the guy, but I certainly hope he makes a full & quick recovery. That's scary shit.

Letang out 4-6 months after neck surgery. There go the Pens chances of repeating.

Re. Letang: Has a team ever lost its No. 1 defenseman for the entire playoffs before the playoffs began and still won the Stanley Cup?


My reply: Depending on how you felt about Konstantinov/Lidstrom at the end of the 1996-1997 season. 1a/1b?

First thing that came to mind was when the Wings lost Konstantinov permanently after the '97 Stanley Cup win, so he was out before and for the entire '98 playoffs. So depends on if you felt Vladdy was their #1 at that point(finished runner-up in Norris with Lidstrom 6th in '97, Lidstrom was runner-up in '98), but they still lost a #1.
