Salo and Kubina are gone gone gone so long long long

TSN is reporting that Sami Salo is at least another month away from returning from his severely broken nose/cracked sinus cavity injury. Mmmm, a cracked sinus. That's got to suck.

Word is that Lukas Krajicek is out about 2 more weeks away from returning after cracking a bone in his ankle last month. In my opinion, the loss of Krajicek is worse because he was playing so well at the time he was injured. Salo wasn't. It seems like Nonis was a Nostradamus in the offseason by acquiring so many defencemen. I thought he was on crack. Now he looks like a wise guy.

Pavel Kubina will miss some serious time after suffering an MCL injury during the Leafs' Saturday night loss to the Rangers. You know how it is with MCL injuries....a fair chunk of time missed.
Uh-oh, I'm talking about the Canucks AND the Leafs again. It's almost time to start changing the banner on this site again isn't it?

How many of you watched the Sens-Habs game early on Saturday? What a classic. That is what hockey is all about right there. Lots of chances, great goaltending, a suprise ending. Great game.

I was just talking hockey with a few of my co-workers and we were wondering which coach is going to get the axe next. One guy said Mike Keenan. I disagreed. Who do you think?

-Mike Keenan
-Dave Tippett- Gad the Stars are awful right now.
-Paul Maurice- Leafs are terribly inconsistent and seem to tune him out half the time.
-Wayne Gretzky-No love for the great one in the desert
-Glen Hanlon- the Caps are fading again and had high expectations.

I say Dave Tippett. The Stars have no excuse to be losing with that kind of roster.

Enjoy your long weekend everybody. And a big thank you and massive respect to those who have fought in the past and the present for our freedom that we so richly enjoy.

So sad about kubina.. Not.. Perhaps he'll come back and not suck horribly, sorta like McCabe hasn't been his usual terrible self since coming back. Saw some flashes of his dumbass self shining through yesterday though.

Does any team suck worse at shootouts, btw?

As for the next coach to get axed, why not Maurice? He preaches this defensive system but apparently he can't get any buy-in from the players.. Although I really can't see any coach that could do much with that bunch of goofballs..

Well, I nearly agree with you on all fronts there, J. With the Leafs' inconsistency, it's hard to believe they have a playoff spot right now. I guess you could say the same about Vancouver..
I have never totally appreciated the signing of Kubina. Or Hal Gill for that matter. The LEafs would have been better off with a healthy Jay McKee or someone like him

I agree that there is no reason for the Stars to be sucking - the roster is so great, it makes absolutely no sense. While I love Dave Tippett as a person, as a coach I can't help but question his abilities. First round playoff exit for what, four years in a row?

Yeah, it's almost time for the axe to fall on Tippett. It doesn't help the Stars' situation that Modano isn't putting out either. He only had 2 points in the first round against Vancouver. He isn't that dominant player anymore.

Since Doug Armstrong has just been axed, you'd have to think it's a message to Dave Tippett that he's got a little more time (since it wasn't his head on the chopping block), but not much more, to turn that ship around.
