Smith out 3-4 weeks (per twitter)

obviously this was coming, a few of our players were starting to get healthy, 1 comes back so another goes out. When sammy comes back I fully expect bert to be injured, although I wouldn't be upset if cleary had to be sidelined for an injury for a bit

So much for it not being a serious injury. I thought he'd be out two weeks at the most from what it sounded like.

It's really ridiculous. All of these injuries are unexplainable. A few? No problem. But I've counted nine. Nine!!!!!

Hopefully the new Illitch arena has vitamin-fortified water.

We can look for explanations but really, it's a dice roll. We're on the bad end. Sometimes we confuse the hell out of ourselves trying to find reasons for chance. Save yourself the headache, it's random. A shorter season may play a part but not that much.

Too old, damnit Kenny.

Bad news, Smith finally gets a chance to be up fulltime and work on his game, and gets hurt.

On the brightside at least Smith-Quincey is not going to be a pairing for a bit, it's too bad this is what it took for them to be broken up though..

Really could've used him tonight.. Someone needs to clear guys out of the front of the net. The first two goals were unacceptable.

smith and helm back in should help revive the team, kets just hope it won't be too late :(

Exactly. My only hope is that we get the injury out of the way and somehow squeak into the playoffs just as everyone is completely healthy and clicking.

I've heard next week being possible for mule and smitty

Ya I'm pretty sure the announcers said during the game that he'd be back after the back to back weekend games. It'll be nice to get Smith back up in the top 4.

Brendan Smith, Carlo Colaiacovo: Holland said he anticipates both (out with shoulder injuries) will be ready to play next Sunday vs. Chicago, if not during the trip to California (Wednesday in L.A., Thursday in San Jose).

What's the over/under on how many games Colaicovo plays?

This is good news, but with the way Lashoff has been playing, I really could care less if Cola comes back...

I hope Smith stays healthy now, because he has some chemistry with Lashoff and would make a great duo!

Kronwall - Ericsson

Smith - Lashoff

Huskins - White

...that is a lineup I think would be our best. Kindl picked his game up a bit last game, but I still believe his time is over. When Smith comes back, Kindl should sit. I like Lashoff and Huskins too much on this team.

Thrilled Smith is coming back. Indifferent about Colaiacovo as I would rather have Lashoff keep playing and he seems like the odd man out.
