Both have been out at the same time for a big chunk of time.
Every player projected to be even a semi-regular center has missed at least 12 games, Andersson is the only one who has played more than 45.
Miller, Quincey, and Kronwall are the only players to have played 70 or more games.
Tatar and Lashoff, along with the three above, are the only players to have missed fewer than 10 games.
Nyquist and Tatar are the two leading goal scorers.
They have dressed 30 skaters and have had 11 rookies dress.
If you had been told those facts at the beginning of the year, haw many games out of the playoffs would you think they'd be right now? I would have figured close to the bottom of the division. Instead, if the season ended today they would be in the playoffs.
I don't know about you guys, but I'm pretty proud of what this team has accomplished, even if it's not what past teams have been able to do.
This simple question led to one of my favorite exchanges in the history of my time on this forum:
It looks like Yellow Mustard is going to miss some time after catching that elbow last night against the Sabres. Its really bad timing too, because our defense already thin with Big Poppa out with a concussion and Bandit serving his 5 game suspension. I would say this forces us to call up someone from GR, most likely Billy the Kid or The Player Formerly Known As Steve. We might be in trouble on the back end until we get some regulars back, since this leaves the Boogeyman as our #1 defenseman. And you know what that means!!!!
