In Topic: Mantha's Injury

Someone needs to explain to me why some posters believe this helps Jurco's chances...?

 

It wasn't like Mantha was the reason Jurco will start the season in GR.

 

Not the sole reason but if Mantha had impressed enough to make the team, that pretty much would guarantee Jurco would start the year in GR at least in my opinion.  With one less body to compete against, his chances of sticking with the big club at the start of the year improve dramatically, especially without Alfie around & his main competition being Callahan & Ferraro who I still think would both make it through waivers.

Awful luck for the Kid... Take your time in your recovery.

 

I honestly was not expecting him to play with the Wings this year... spend a full year of pro hockey with GR and go from there.

 

Oh by the way, anyone blaming this injury on the red wings staff deserves to be banned lol

 

At least it was sort of hockey related & not from kicking a wall like an idiot... (said while glancing towards Josh Harding)

Just don't rush the kid if he misses day 1 so be it

Can't link to it from work, but Khan's just tweeted that Mantha's out 6-8 weeks with a broken right tibia.

Guess that means Jurco will start the season with the big club.

{sarcasm mode /ON}

 

Who wants a goon like Probert playing alongside such fine talents as we see with Datsyuk, and Zetterberg?

I'm sure Red Wings owner Dave Ilitch would.

And that sums up the entire prequel trilogy.

 

There were many more things wrong with the prequels beyond the plot holes.  I mean really, they could have signed Dan Cleary to play a role in them & it would have been an improvement.
