Wow, got to give props to Cleary, Rafalski, and Datsyuk. Especially with Babs saying that their injuries were serious enough that they wouldn't have played in the regular season. Rest up for next season, boys. Got to love their heart - and balls, if you will.

Speaking of balls, Lidstrom's injury is easily the weirdest one . Did anyone ever rewind a DVR and catch the play where he was "speared"? I don't want to presume anything without seeing the footage, but that doesn't sound like a common accidental injury. Whoever did it is lucky Downey wasn't on the ice, a la Ian Lapperiere wink.gif

Sharp did it.

He knew Lilja and Kopecky (2 players who kicked his ass previously) weren't playing, so he tried to act real tough.

I hope next year PAIN TRAIN goes after Sharp again and feeds that ***** his lunch.

BTW, your description of me is a perfect description for your boy Hossa.

This is weak. You have, what, 12 months time here over him. And Hossa is pitiful and worthless? Come on. You really do seem to have issues.

Out of curiosity, will we ever find out what all the upper body/lower body injuries were that were suffered through the playoffs?
Was Datsyuk's problem really his foot?

Thanks for posting. I knew Homer didn't look like himself. I was afraid his age was catching up to him. Hopefully some rest does him good.

Lids: can't say enough about him.

Thinking about it, our top 2 defensemen were playing injured.
That's pretty much impossible to win a series without your top 2 D. We can't blame the wings.

Yes we can. The d wasn't really the problem. We had 2 games to take the cup and our offense didn't show up. 1 goal 2 games in a row is unacceptable with all the offensive firepower we have. Not the D's fault, or ozzie's fault. The forwards didn't show up to play end of story.

Mickey Redmond didn't come out and say the injuries but he mentioned the following players were very banged up:

Holmstrom
Cleary
Draper
Datsyuk
Lidstrom
Rafalski

He said none of them would even be playing if it weren't for the WCF.

I will be very interested to see what all of the injuries were.


And look how Cleary played. That's the kind of guy you want every time. Lids injury was terrifyingly painful from what I hear. Kudos to him too.

The reason that the offense wasn't scoring was that they were too tired spending too much time in the defensive zone not getting the puck out. I think the team defense was the issue.

I'm trying to understand your logic here---the team had two games to win the cup, but they couldn't win, and that was the problem... and the fact that the team's top two defensemen were injured didn't make that victory less likely?

I don't get it.

Also, please note that defensemen play a vital part in offense.

For anyone too lazy to click links like myself.

Rafalski - herniated disk in back, seperated shoulder

Cleary - severly pulled groin

Lidstrom - damaged testicles

Datsyuk - charlie horse, bad foot

Homer - hernia, bad foot, bad knee

Like that's some pretty big lifting there, too many injuries, not enough gas. They'll be back next year.

All of this made me shiver ...

QUOTE
"When I first saw the doctor in the morning, he asked me if I had any kids, and if I planned on having more kids," said Lidstrom, 39, who has four sons.
Two days earlier, the Blackhawks' Patrick Sharp had speared Lidstrom in his testicles. Lidstrom practiced the next day, which says something about the man; you don't have to be Allen Iverson to think speared testicles are a good reason to skip practice. But when Lidstrom woke up on the 24th, he was in too much pain to play. He needed surgery immediately. Now here was this doctor, telling Lidstrom he might emerge from anesthesia with one ********.
"He said he didn't know until he actually went in there and looked," Lidstrom said.


QUOTE
As Rosenberg notes, Andreas Lilja continues to have post-concussive headaches, and when three months pass without a respite from those symptoms, hockey players tend to worry whether they're ever going to play again; Kris Draper missed time with torn cartilage in his trachea, as well as a groin injury; Pavel Datsyuk dealt with both a bone bruise in his foot and a thigh contusion described as worse than the one he suffered during the 2006 playoffs against the Edmonton Oilers (and that Charley horse had to be lacerated--repeatedly--to prevent it from calcifying)


QUOTE
And yet, when I asked Lidstrom which Wings impressed him most with their toughness in the playoffs, the first name he mentioned was Dan Cleary. Lidstrom said Cleary had "two partial tears in his groin." Every stride on the ice must have been excruciating for Cleary. He played every game, scored 15 points and was plus-17.


QUOTE
Brian Rafalski told Rosenberg that, in addition to suffering from a herniated disc from his back, he suffered a separated left shoulder. His back injury gave him "tingles"


QUOTE
Overall, Lidstrom spoke with his usual mastery of understatement in discussing the Wings' injuries (take note that Henrik Zetterberg has yet to admit that he played through a wrist injury and other ailments that deemed him a "70%" status from Mickey Redmond)

Seriously. Add Draper, Kopecky and Lilja to that list, and I can't believe the team managed to get one win away from the cup. After reading all this, I hope no one is doubting this teams willingness to put their heart, soul and body into winning games anymore.
