NHL network is reporting Modano has a severed flexor tendon in the wrist. They say he is out indefinitely. Complete recovery time can be anywhere from 6 weeks to 3 months... many variables.

Well, I didn't see that one coming, I was really hoping it was something minor. Here's to a fast recovery with as little variation as possible to delay his health.

Thosef****** skates can do alot of damage, they are worse than groin and most knee injuries, if it slices you open you're gone for weeks/months :/

I guess that means Hudler, Miller and Eaves are all in. Good thing we didn't dump Huds like some people on here wanted to do yesterday....

Draper should be returning this week. That dream can still continue.

Modano should take extra time to recover and not rush things. Good part is he could still skate but with no contact.

Draper will sit most games or they will alternate Miller/Eaves and Draper on the 4th line. Huds doesn't fit in th 4th line roll and Abby is to good to relegate to the 4th line.

My bet is that we see Abby/Huds/Clears on the 3rd line.

Helm and Miller/Eaves/Draper on the 4th.

That blows..Huge hit to the line-up.

My guess is that Abdelkader will slot back to center and will play the 3rd line with Hudler and Cleary.

That is a bad injury. Hope he recovers as soon as possible. It's been a rough year for him so far.

I'm calling it now. Abdelkader with 20+ points in 30-35 games with that line.

I say this every single time an injury like this happens, but given the pace & intensity of the NHL I am amazed there are not more injuries like this.

Sucks big style for Modano though.
"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk
