Have to agree, there was way too much injury this year. Most teams would have bowed out a long time ago from the quality losses we suffered. I think they played pretty hard considering what I am GUESSING to be some terrible injuries to fight through.


Don't you think a lot of the Penguins were playing with some bad injuries too?

I have a great deal of respect for all of these players. Some of these injuries are crazy.

With the playoffs over, Red Wings general manager Ken Holland shed some light Saturday on the team's key injuries:

-- Pavel Datsyuk also had a charley horse, in addition to his foot injury. Both were sustained in Game 2 vs. Chicago. Holland said the foot was not fractured and it was fine by the time he returned, but the charley horse, similar to the injury Datsyuk suffered prior to the 2006 playoffs, really hampered him.

"He didn't have that jump, he definitely was not 100 percent but he had the hands and the hockey sense,'' Holland said. "He wanted to play so bad.''

Holland said if it was the regular season Datsyuk, who missed seven games before returning for Game 5 of the finals, would have sat out at least two more weeks.

-- Brian Rafalski had a herniated disc in his back, a freak thing that happened between the first and second rounds when he was just getting out of his car. He missed the first five games of the Anaheim series.

"He was never 100 percent,'' Holland said. "In the regular season he would have left him out another two weeks.''

-- Dan Cleary had a severe groin pull, so much so the the club didn't think he would play in Game 5 of the finals, but he gutted it out.

-- Nicklas Lidstrom had a groin injury after getting speared in Game 3 vs. Chicago.

"We rushed them all back when we knew there wasn't any danger of them hurting themselves any further,'' Holland said.

Holland said those were the only significant injuries sustained during the playoffs. None will require surgery.

And you're acting like he is your lover. If that's what makes him feel better, let him complain.

Let me guess. You're another odd Hossa supporter?

I just asked a simple question about his health status, which people over the last month have brought up as an excuse to his horrid play. I was wondering whether there was any merit to it?

For instance, if Hossa was playing with a detached spinal cord, then I'd say that his poor play was justified.

Wow Rafalski had a herniated disk in his back, he really gutted it out. No wonder he couldnt catch Staal in Game 4, and finally we see why Datsyuk was out for so long, 2 bad injuries. Dano played like a man possesed in game 7 up until the 3rd, and with a pulled groin, man, couldnt be more proud of the guys. Sucks to lose, but they played with alot of heart.

With those injuries, they're lucky to have been in a position to have won the Cup. I'm proud of them.

Amen to that.

Those injuries would easily put them out for a month or so if it were regular season. Amazing they played through it.

I live in central michigan (home of Ferris State University) and the support the Wings is getting here is simply amazing. I swear every one here is wearing a Red Wing jersey, wearing Wings paraphernalia, and have Red Wings flag on their car.

Everyone who is a Wings can who read this, I solute you! You guys / gals are the best!!! It's a beautiful day in Hockeytown! smile.gif
