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