Needed a few looks before reaching the decision to perform surgery on his tendon. Only played 26 games this season, although it's believed he hurt his foot blocking a shot in the first game.

He'll turning 33 this summer with a foot injury they had trouble diagnosing. Everyone was crying Forsberg on local radio yesterday.

Guaranteed Mirtle is not a fan of his publication pumping out a fluff piece like this.

Quote:
There are few players around the NHL that have an aura about them anymore. For the few who do, it is generally because of their offensive exploits, the things we can watch them do on the ice with our own eyes that make us marvel at their skill, their gifts. Sidney Crosby has an aura. Connor McDavid already has one as well. But so does Weber.

Except Weber’s aura is difficult to appreciate from the outside because much of it stems from things we can’t easily see on the ice, or things we can’t see at all off the ice.

But it’s there. And it’s unmistakable.

This is why the Habs are bad. The belief that they're missing intangibles and not talent.

Fallin' for Dahlin'.

The best thing about the Habs right now is that when your building a team, you start with the goaltender.

They don't need a centre. They're looking for a unicorn that can skate!

Seriously though, the Habs have about a million picks this draft and if they don't end up with lottery pick, Veleno and/or Groulx I'd be disappointed.

Kotkaniemi
Veleno
Poehling
Groulx

Those guys up the middle in 3 years would be sweet.

The more prospect-savvy Avs posters on HF are all about Veleno and Kotkaniemi.

Veleno's from my backyard so I know he's good. Lacking big game ability but he's such a smart player, I feel like he'll figure out the NHL game quickly. Ducharme is doing wonders for his career.

Kotkaniemi is a young Finn succeeding in their pro league. Habs love that. Button compared him to Kopitar a little. I feel like after the lottery guys he could go top 10 if someone likes him enough.

On one hand helps the tank both on the ice and off with an excuse. On the other you could be watching an asset rot on the vine to use for the rebuild.

Whoopsies!

That sucks though. Hope he heals quickly.
