Jonathan Ericsson out with fractured wrist, no timetable for return.

This is weird.  I'm not proud to say this, but a couple of games ago I watched Ericsson throw the puck up the sideboards, blind, and turn it over for about the 3,000,000th time and I thought to myself, "why doesn't HE ever get hurt?". And then he did.  It was purely out of frustration at having to watch him needlessly throw the puck away over and over and over.

Now, I'm not saying I am or am not happy about this.

But I am saying that I've probably got superpowers.

If those young guys are good they will play themselves on to the roster and into significant roles. We don't need ericsson to be injuried for that to happen. 

Not wishin injuries on anyone, but it seems the young guys did need him to get injured to get in the lineup. And that's a problem because if Errorsson wasn't making $5 million plus per season (with an NTC too I think?), he would have been off this team long ago. He rarely has a good game, yet he's never even a healthy scratch now and then. Can't have a player making that kind of money sitting in the press box when healthy, so we all have to put up with his defensive brain farts, lazy play, missed assignments, and deflecting pucks into his own net. And we have to put up with it for a couple more years after this.

You can certainly have a player making that kind of money in the press box.  It just takes some guts to make the call.
