This is getting ugly. Don't expect the bleeding to stop anytime soon unless we get amazing goaltending and D-zone play, even then we'll be.... uh, challenged, to score goals with the line-up were icing. The injuries we've had every season since winning the Cup have been ridiculous.

I still say its because of lack of grit.  Hard to stay healthy when all your players are made of pudding.  Is bill cosby the trainer or what?

Lets go RED WINGS!!!

I say we forfeit the next 5 games and pry no one gets injured walking the stairs.

At this point I want to see Cleary and Samuelsson on the first line for pure entertainment.

The GDT would be epic for sure :lol:

I just had to laugh.  It's gotten to the point of ridiculousness.  

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Cleary - Samuelsson. They don't get a third forward, just them two. As punishment. They have cursed us all.

I don't think even having 4 guys on one line and 2 Pulkkinens would help much right now. 


Why is every injury happening to the guys that we desperately need!? Sammy, Quincey and Cleary are gonna go through this season fully healthy aren't they? 

its because guys like sammy and cleary are floaters that never get into the action. and no one cares to even defend against because they suck so bad. hahahahaha


I'm not sure if you're being sarcastic....because that's 2/3 of the Griffins cup winning 1st line.

I'm a Knight..how can I help you?

That lineup is bah-ruh-tall.  Is this why Sheahan was called up?

If Jordin Tootoo were playing Nyquist would never have pulled his groin.  Scientific fact!

I was watching football and one team had a string of hamstring injuries i forget who, but they were planning to have an "official" inquiry into the training staff and medical staff. made me think of the red wings injury woes.

Get me a real fourth line Kenny!

Gus has looked like our best player of late, creating plays with his speed, skill, and smarts whoever he plays with. This is (another) huge hit right now...

And as an even crueler twist of fate, as we are all discussing whether Sammy is out of the lineup for good, given all the other call ups proceeding him in our taped together depth chart, we lose another player, likely pushing him back into the lineup. Lucky us. Couldn't buy him out because he wasn't healthy enough to play elsewhere, and now we can't get rid of the guy.

True story.  Nyquist would be safely in GR.

In reality, things aren't on fire.  Fire is on things.

@AnsarKhanMLive: Babcock said Nyquist has a groin injury. That's usually a week to 10 days
Edit: this is ridiculous. Is this a training/conditioning staff problem, or just a s*** luck problem?

I cannot believe this is just a case of bad luck. Remember this happened last season too.

If this doesn't stop they should consider dressing Mickey Redmond and other alumnis again because everyone else seems to be injured....

Well, the Detroit Griffins are getting plenty of experience. It just costs me a lot to drive from Grand Rapids to see almost the same product for a lot more money.

Something seriously has to be looked at in our training department...this is too much of a problem to be a coincidence!


Now we KNOW our return from injuries will be our deadline acquisitions...


I guess we are going to get to see our kids for sure now! 


My only question is....why the hell can we not get Bertuzzi - Sammy - Cleary to go out on LTIR?

This is NOT what I wanted to read when I came to the site today.


WTF is up with the seemingly endless string of injuries lately?

Guarantee a lot of those alumni players are far better than Cleary, Sammy and Quincey...I'd take Feds and Lids over Cleary or Sammy and Quincey today!

Remember when we dumped Carlo Colaiacovo because he's so injury-prone?

"If I were to wish for anything, I should not wish for wealth and power, but for the passionate sense of the potential, for the eye which, ever young and ardent, sees the possible. Pleasure disappoints, possibility never. And what wine is so sparkling, what so fragrant, what so intoxicating, as possibility!" - Kierkegaard
