In Topic: Need help selecting Yzerman jersey to buy

Bought a Datsyuk winter classic jersey from Sportsk last winter and was very impressed (got it shipped to the UK as well), patches and everything. Would definitely recommend going to them for jerseys

well if that's the case we may be looking at the mrazek/Howie tandum a year early if his out most of the season good preview to see if the two


He'll most likely be back by Christmas or just after is my bet. Datsyuk's was a minor sprain and he was gone for 4 weeks. But it's all dependent on how much damage there is and the extent of the injury. It's all just speculation at this point.

It sounds like an anterior shoulder dislocation by the way it was described (i haven't seen it) and the fact that he basically landed on his outstretched arm. If he's torn one of the labrums then we're talking a couple months, and that's before talking about any possible rotator cuff muscle tears or strains. 


The shoulder joint is one of the weakest joints in the body as it is, which is why it's so flexible. The downside of that is the fact that it can get easily damaged. 


I'd say Petr will be here for a while, but the MRI will reveal the extent of the injury

It is, quite simply, a joke. One of the things I cannot stand about football over in the UK is the fact that not only every year do the uniforms change, but they also have a giant logo of some crappy company plastered right in the midsection of the shirt. 


From a purely aesthetic standpoint, this is one of the reasons I have gravitated more towards hockey. It also means, that as a fan, when you invest in a jersey, you're getting something that will be around for quite some time. And in the case of the wings, that could be several decades. 


Practice jerseys they can go nuts with as far as ads go. But game jerseys? Yuk. If they want jersey sales to remain high, then they should scrap this idea before it even gets started. 


That being said, how would everyone feel if they only put ads on the all star game jerseys? I mean, the game is a gimmick in itself anyway, I think I could just about live with that if that's as far as it went. I have the funny feeling though that once they get the foot in the door, it'll just snowball

In Topic: Franzen to 7-day IR

Sorry but that's absolute bull. You can't compare Miller to Jurco because both have completely different roles on this team. miller is clearly a 4th line guy who is relied on on the PK, whereas Jurco is a scoring forward who is counted on to use his body and speed to create offensive chances


If we actually send Miller down, what does that achieve? Who's going to play on the 4th line? Cleary? Sorry, but that 4th line thus far has been tremendous through 5 games, and if Glendening had the hands of Ovechkin he'd be leading the league in scoring with the number of chances he's had. 


You can't fix one problem by creating another. 


As for Franzen, I know a lot of you hate him, but screw it. He's been on fire thus far. He's 34. We know exactly what he is. And oh yea. Hockey's a contact sport. I'm sure they're far more injuries that ever get reported to the press. Doesn't make it more or less frustrating when they happen, but they just do. Luckily he's not out long term and it's only 7 day IR. So can please, just for once, when we get an injury this season, can all the haters hold off with the 'i told you so's', and actually enjoy this team for what it's worth, which right now is looking quite promising.
