Zetterberg out 2-3 weeks (inflamed disc)

Obligatory: This sucks.

Long-term (which is a short couple weeks...): We'll be limping in and around Nashville, it seems like. Anything can still happen with this line up, but if we do drop the ball against the Preds, let this be the first, "Don't Panic, We're Still in the Playoffs and We're Healthier Than Ever" post.

We'll have to buckle down and play smart hockey. Lang will have to get up off his duff.

Awww, I feel really bad for Hank. Any chance at a Hart run is gone now :(

I'm spinning this really hard...but.... :P

On the plus side, more minutes for Hudler and Flipper?

That hurts, but we Wings fans know that the playoffs are what really matter. Get well soon Hank!

Hopefully if it is only about 2 weeks, he should only miss a max of about 4-5 games. I'm being VERY positive here.

Get well soon Zetterberg!

the biggest reason this hurts is those 3 games against Nashville in the next 14 days. i don't know about the rest of you guys but if we finish 4th more than likely we'll have to meet San Jose first round and that us the number one team i don't want to see in the playoffs.

Yeah, well guess what! It's a herniated disk so there are no guarantees he'll be back without surgury, in which case kiss the playoffs good bye.

Ummm...except it's not a herniated disk. Way to be negative though...

welp, we had a good season. lets just enjoy the tigers during the off seasons and prepare for next winter...

The season is a lot longer than 2-3 weeks. So are the playoffs.

This is one of the stupidest things I've ever heard.

ITS 2-3 WEEKS! NOT A LONG TIME!

Atleast it's now and not the end of March.

true that.

dallas has the same point total as san jose. its just as likely that we play them if we finish 4th. and I'd for sure rather play dallas than calgary who's 8th now.

Don't care as long as he's healthy by the playoffs.

You kids are as reactionary as Bettman was about the safety nets and politicians were about Sept. 11.

We've got tons of depth guys- there's more then enough opportunity to really make this work. What happened last time Z wasn't scoring? LIDS! When the scoring up front dies down Lids starts peppering the opposing goalie with hot rubber.

Flame-bait much?

Well ooptar...

I know the Wings are in a fight for the top spot in the division, but personally I am not too concerned if the Wings finish 1 or 4. Any of the teams in the Western Conference are capable of making a deep run in the playoffs. All matchups will be dangerous ones, so while I'd like to see Zetterberg in the lineup obviously, the Wings are pretty entrenched to being 1/4. Having Zetterberg out really won't have much affect in the Wings' place in the standings IMO, so no need to rush him back. Mid-March hopefully.

But the good book does say "Feareth not my children, I shall take my son from you at the birth of a time in which you shall have dire need for him, but this will force your second line to increase production and groometh them for what is sure to be a testing and steady road to Stanley's Grail. And all will be good."

It's all in there, i just don't know where. If anyone has the time to find this verse please let me know. . .

Get better soon Z!

it was only a matter of time before the boys broke your back.... You can't carry the team by yourself the entire season. This is a prime time to see if the rest of the guys can pick up the slack. I know holmer is up to the task so far!

This might not be the most horrible thing for the team. Last year we glided into the playoffs and got licked by a bunch of thumpers in the first round. A little adversity might be just the ticket.

I don't like seeing Z hurt though, he's our guy.

Ok!! I'm very superstitious, and my Mom bought me a signed Zetterberg jersey for my upcoming birthday, so I will take the fall for Z's back injury, I'm sorry everyone my Mom was just trying to do something nice for me. Oh, and as for finishing 1st or 4th in the conference, I'm not so sure that San Jose won't win the Pacific Division, which would mean we would play Anaheim or Dallas. One thing I can tell ya I don't want to play Minnesota or Calgary first, but to be the best you have to beat the best!! GET WELL SOON Z!!!!!! :(:(:(
