Losing Schneider hurts, but I'm more conserned what it might do to Lilja's game. He's been our 2nd best defenseman in my opinion, and of couse, his partner was Schneid's.

He adjusted well in game 5, so that's a good sign.

aww thats some realllly bad news.....
i hope lebda can come back for monday
question if we get to the next series and then to the SC finals

I dont know how long ppl are usually out when they brake their wrist?


Everybody feels the same way, but I think it's a chance for Quincey to step up

I get the feeling the next month could determine whether Schneider comes back, and at what price.

If the Wings get destroyed and Schneider's absence is a noticeable factor...he'll be back. If Kronwall steps in and plays just as well as Matty...Schneider might be gone.

They just said he's going to have surgery next week and will be in a splint the next 8 weeks or so. sad.gif

Such an innocent play turns out to be so damn ugly.

Also, Krons is going to start skating by the end of this week. If the Wings make it to the SCF he'd more than likely be ready to go.

Looks like we are going to need Lebs to step it up big time. He's done great, but he's going to have to do even better now.

Well, they got started off on the right foot without Schneider. Thier PP went, what? 2 for 6 in his absence, and the 5th and 6th PPs didnt really count given that we were holding off at that point. I love Schneider and all, but if Anaheim is as good as the Sharks were at blocking shots, his absence might not be as noticeable on the point since well have to play more down low. And if the Ducks decide to take away the down low players on the PP now that Schneider is out, thats going to leave Lidstrom open A LOT.

IMO, the Wings will adjust. Theyve done so perfectly so far.

There are quite a few teams in desperate need of an offensive defenseman. That could up his pricetag. The Wings likely wont get into a bidding war with Schneider given his age and the fact that the young NHL ready Dmen the Wings have are starting to pile up. I wouldnt be surprised if Kenny wants to get Kindl and Quincey into the lineup ASAP while Lidstrom is still around for 1) mentoring purposes and 2) to make smooth the transition when Lidstrom retires. It might be too much for the WIngs to handle if we have too many 1st and 2nd year defenseman without Lidstroms presence.

As soon as they said he was out for the rest of the game I turned to my brother and told him it was broken...there'd be no reason not to put him back in the game if it wasn't a fracture. This sucks. Does anyone know what Kronwall's original injury was?

I just saw this and got kinda choked up by it.

Schneider's words of wisdom.

That's such a great gesture by him to pull Lebs to the side and have a heart to heart with him to take his place. Wow. clap.gif

Always thinkin'! Agree, although I still worry about Kronwall's defensive zone puck handling!

The thing that really is making me not worry too much about Schneider being gone is that he was never really spectacular on defense. Of course, we'll miss his offence, but I'd rather it was him that went instead of some more defensively capable player. I'm still a subscriber to the idea that defense wins championships, and we didn't take TOO big of a knock by losing him.
