#2484634 Zetterberg out with herniated disc

Posted by Z Winged Dangler on 17 February 2014 - 09:14 AM

I feel bad for Z. FWIW, I have had back problems since I was around 20 (almost 28 now), and I can go months or longer being just fine, and then the dumbest, seemingly innocuous thing will happen and I will have to start all over. I am a funeral director so I do a lot of heavy lifting all the time and be great and then I will take the slightest slip on some ice or lift a laundry basket or something not even worth noting to myself and it will start. Sometimes it is even 2-3 days before the inflammation kicks in to cause pain.

For all we know, the long plane ride could have been enough on Z. I hope he has a productive, long-term recovery, not only for his hockey career but for his lifetime.

The slight turn to put your seatbelt on.  That's my latest.  Proves s*** happens even when you're careful.  Best of luck dude.  May you be pain free as long as possible.

Well here's hoping this time around they award the gold based on past achievement.  If not, this time next week you boys will be watching curling, waving your little Canadian flags, and endlessly repeating "four years ago we were the best in the world". 

Last USA gold medal was 1980.  I'd take 4 years rather than 34.  I guess what I'm saying is that when Canada wins it, it's not a big enough deal to make a movie.  :cheesy:   Kick ass movie though.

Very unimpressed with Team Canada.  Considering their lineup, shouldn't they be.... better? 

 

Also, the backup/color commentator guy is awful.

Glen Healy, by far the worst part of Hockey Night in Canada every Saturday.  Guy is not only a complete moron, but a tardcore Leaf Blower.

There you have it.  Drew motherf***ing Doughty.  I said it all game, just give him the puck cause clearly, he's the only Canadian that knows how to shoot the puck "not directly at the goalie".

No CBC announcer, this isn't "technically a great game".  USA vs Russia was a great game.  This game is a chess match where Canada needs to get more quality shots to the net, but the Finns D is in their heads and they're as Kip said, skating in glue.  That's why I wanted a guy like Ladd on the 4th line to grind and hit.  USA has a line of Callahan-Backes-Brown....we have Nash in that role.  f*** me.

Technical issues with Glen Healy's mic!  There is a god!!!


And no Koivu's

Saku's no biggie, but Mikku is another huge loss.

Doughty has been absolutely amazing so far.  A goal in each game now.  Shouldn't have had a PP, but we'll take it.  Selanne is pissed with Crosby lol.

Good thing they brought Kunitz to the Olympics.  He and Crosby are doing magnificent on the big stage together...... :lol:

That really is the worst possible way to end a medal game.  I don't even get the point of shootouts anyway.  Hopefully the gold medal game ends in regulation or OT.

Toews vs Oshie.  3 day shootout.

Just tuned into the USA game.  Kessel with a hatty?  Him and JVR are deadly.

In all honesty...I hope the St.Louis Blues represent the Western Conference for the 2014 Cup Final...They seem like a decent bunch of guys to cheer for.

They were my prediction to win the west this year.  Their team is so strong top to bottom.  Them and Boston is the finals I predict and would actually love to see.  Shattenkirk is a very good player as well.  Didn't look to get too much ice time today (I could be wrong though), but he's a good guy to fall back on if needed to step up.

Also, am I alone in thinking I'd absolutely love JVR on the wings? Dood can play

Absolutely not.  He's awesome.  Nice guy too.  :thumbup:

Kovalchuk is trying to reach his number in blind pass giveaways today.
