Buried in a Freep story about Ian White's eventual return was this nugget from Babcock about Gustavsson:

 

http://www.freep.com...1046/1053/rss17

 

And as for backup goaltender Jonas Gustavsson and his groin injury, "There doesn't seem to be any light at the end of the tunnel. Whitey is the only one making any noise."

 

Obviously, groin injuries are a big deal for goaltenders, but this is starting to sound like months, not weeks.  Unfortunate because McCollum is not ready by any stretch of the imagination, MacDonald's got that back injury dating back to 10 months ago, and the Wings schedule in February will be BRUTAL.  I count 8 games that are back-to-back and many others on two days rest.  So that's at least 4 games that Monster probably would've played for Howard.  Seriously, any type of injury to Howard right about now, and this season could come off the rails in a hurry.

With a short season, a lot of injuries are expected... I really do not expect much from the Wings this year due to this, but we shall see how the tending works out... This team really never rode one goalie and I think hat was the reason for being successful in the past; of course just my view

I'm not kidding, but I can't seem to locate it, or anything related to it, so maybe I am wrong, I hope I am

Throw Mrazek into the fire if you have too. Better then giving McCollum a start (dear god) and Joey isn't any closer to coming back then Gus like what was stated. We can't ride the hell out of Howard like last year, because he'll get hurt again. And if Howard gets hurt during a 48 game season, say goodnight.

LOL it does sound like a ghost story! I would not want my house haunted by someone's lingering groin, thank you very much.

Some girl I used to fool around with in college gave me Lingering Groin once. Takes weeks to get rid of.

How come so many NHL teams have goalies in the minors no one has heard of, who can instantly come into the lineup and hold their own?  We see that every year from several teams.    

 

Yet, this team has McCollum to fall back on from the AHL.  Figures.  

 

The Wings need to do a better job developing goalies in their farm system.  Then we don't have to scramble for s***ty or injured backups every year.  


According to my profile, my reputation is excellent. LOL.

Yeah. Totally works though. Gets rid of all that lingering groin smell.

Is Todd Bertuzzi our super backup if all else fails? I vaguely recall Ken and Micky mentioning this at one point years ago...
