That headline is misleading.
The actual headline is " Wings receive good news on Helm; Kronwall to return on Wednesday"
OH SURE RAIN ON MY PARADE
The Habs have guys dropping like flies right now.
Prust (out 4 weeks)
Pacioretty (out 3)
They could use a big, hard shooting , Stanley Cup winning, PP point specialist.
On the one hand, this would make a lot of sense. On the other, Prust is a(n overrated) third-line grinder, and they were able to have a lot of success last season without Briere. Pacioretty is the big loss, but three weeks actually isn't all that long, so they'll probably just elevate the roles and responsibilities of their young guns, particularly Galchenyuk and Gallagher. They're a proud franchise, and Bergevin has a lot of faith in his troops. I just see them promoting from within instead of bringing in a guy from the outside (which they might consider a black eye) who may very well add a whole lot of nothing to the lineup (double black eye). I mean, certainly if they really, really struggle, something will have to be done. And I'm sure holland would make That Phone Call. But so far they're right up there with us in the standings. And, really, do we want Sammy to come back and haunt us? I'm not a huge believer in the Habs, but I think they might give us problems in a postseason series.
Now, the Rags...that might be more realistic. Because, wow, they are incredibly terrible thus far.
