I don't even have words to express how ludicrous that hit was. Then the zebras call it a deuce for roughing? Stuart is a HUGE loss on our blue line. :ranting:

You don't need to be made of glass to get hurt from that.

If Stuart played for the Bruins, Flyers, Ducks etc Kostopulous wouldn't have made it to the box. Just sayin'...

Where would Kostopulous have gone then?

A bit of hyperbole here. He's a loss on the blue line, but not a huge one, much less a HUGE one.

Stuart's play in the defensive end led directly to at least one goal against tonight, as his play has in a lot of games this season.

I'll miss him, but probably not nearly as much as a lot of you will.

The Ducks have a cup and The Flyers were in the Finals last year. Where were we smart ass?

They'd be packing him up in the ambulance.

Pwn'd.

How did a penalty that drew blood not, at least, result in a 4 min double minor?

My guess is 6-8 weeks. Or actually, my hope is 6-8 weeks considering some cases where players would be out for the season.

3 games? That should be 5-7 at least. That was a dirty hit with intent to injure, not to mention that the puck wasn't at Stuart's feet or stick -- absolute garbage.

Why are you guys saying out for season? Not a chance, cleary only missed 19 games people. Stuart out 20 games MAX.

Third, f*** you Calgary

Fourth, f*** you Ref's

I remember JR suffering a broken jaw and he came back after a few games in the playoffs quite a few years ago (he was with the Yotes then). Since the Wings are only half way through their season, I highly doubt Stuart would be back on the ice for a while. Still a bad injury as Stue will probably be drinking through a straw for while and not be anywhere in game shape when he can come back.

okay, i'll ask,

who replaces him on the backend? Obviously salei gets more minutes,...Janik? Kindl?

It's funny. Reading the game day thread on the Calgary boards, you wouldn't even know Kostopolous hit anyone let alone broke someone's jaw. They literally have said nothing about it.

Oh but one of them did.

I don't really think it was that bad. From the angle I saw in slow mo I thought he led with his shoulder and he happened to catch him in the jaw.

I won't argue if it's a suspension for a few games. TK's a fourth liner anyways and I'm sure Meyer is jawing (no pun intended) at the opportunity.

Maybe poetic justice for the dude to what he did to Iggy and then shying away a couple games ago against them.

A blindside shoulder that just happened to catch him in the jaw and break it wasn't that bad? I guess I shouldn't be surprised by that answer.
