I'm not convinced that no one would trade for Weiss. Tallon only let him walk in the first place because his hands were tied financially. That's no longer the case; he's been given the green light to spend this summer. If not Florida, then perhaps Toronto. Bolland probably won't be back, as he's reportedly looking for a big-ass contract. So, you'd expect them to tell him to GTFO, then turn right around and acquire an ugly contract (e.g. Weiss) as his replacement.

Monster out with undisclosed injury, Jared Coreau in the meantime will serve as backup. Interesting choice i'd say, not sure why they went this direction.

Mrazek's the backup tonight.  Recalled late this afternoon.

I heard it was a shoulder injury but nothing serious.

This is very exciting - to summarise:

 

  • Hank skating with the team at practice today - not for long but still skating. 
  • re-evaluate how he feels wednesday, if he's good, he'll skate again. 
  • KH said they need another week before he can be cleared for contact stuff.
  • Ericsson out for the first round

The complexion of this series changes entirely if Henrik Zetterberg plays tomorrow.

I'm not getting my hopes up, but man what a huge boost that could be.

It's massive. I always used to think that pavel was our best player over hank, and although pavel is my favorite I can't say it. Z is our best player especially in the playoffs, if he's back tomorrow it not only makes our team way better, by we gain leadership and IMO the best playoff performer in the last decade. Please hank play tomorrow

If Zetterberg is back in, and Ouellet replaces Kindl or Lashoff, we're back in this thing. At least it'll be competitive.  Even if Zetterberg isn't 100%, having another talented player for Boston to cover potential frees up Nyquist or someone else who is being smothered.  Z could be useful even just as a distraction for Boston's best shut-down guys.

We're not out of this thing. Even with the current team, all we need is a better start in those last two games and things could've been different, and it's still only 2-1. I'm not 100% convinced Zetterberg rushing back is for the best. Obviously I'm hopeful, and perhaps it'll help motivate guys at the very least, but I just have a hard time believing he's close to truly being ready to compete. But who knows, the guys got a ton of heart and that can overcome a lot of physical issues.

Well I remember right when he was scheduled to have the surgery, I believe it was holland who said that he could be back as early as the last few games of the regular season, so I'm not really sure how early this really is. I always believed that he would be back in round one and thought aiming for round 2 was a smoke screen

Wow!!!

 

Here's hoping, because the Wings definitely look like a team without a Captain. 

 

Zetterberg-Datsyuk-Abby

Franzen-Legwand-Nyquist

Tatar-Sheahan-Jurco

Miller-Helm-Glendening

 

Yes please.

Exactly. 

 

Also, at the risk of sounding callous, a player lives for the playoffs.  There's no point saving himself.  This is it.  No point waiting for the second round if we never make it there.  I'd rather him rush back early at the risk of hurting himself so we can get to the second round.  In my mind, no other round other than the finals will be as tough as this round.  If Z can help us survive, he needs to come back.  

 

I have faith he will do whatever he can, even if he pushes himself. Having him back, even with reduced minutes, would be huge.

This is very, very true and something I thought of last night during the game. Yeah, it was brutal, and it doesn't look good. But we're not out, and if we pull this series out, we've got a really good shot of going the distance to the finals.

Nothing that I read in any way indicates that Zetterberg will be back tomorrow.  It sounds like things are going well, but if he has to be cleared by the doctors before he plays and has no plan to see a doctor anytime soon, that doesn't seem to indicate it will be tomorrow.  But it is the playoffs and I can see the sandbagging aspect.

Ansar Khan tweeted two interesting things:

 

"Babcock said Zetterberg filling in for Datsyuk on the line. Was vague on whether he might play tomorrow. Said if he's ready he'll go.
 
and 
 
"Zetterberg said today was his first real good practice. Doesn't sound like he;s playing tomorrow but wouldn't completely rule it out."
 
So yeah, tomorrow's game is probably a long shot, but neither Babcock or Zetterberg is ruling it out.  But if he's that close, I'd say a Game 5 appearance is pretty likely.

Yeah I noticed that as well. They seem to still be just shooting for a round 2 return still. Unless they are being as vague as they can so the Bruins don't know what the lineup will be for game 4 until last minute
