Good grief. Denis Grebeshkov’s knee injury is “significant”, Fernando’s colitis has flared up again and he’s flown home, Stone’s knee has him a ways from recovery and Jacques is days away.
Horcoff and Souray are getting closer on the good side of things, but O’Sullivan apparently left the ice today.
This might be one of those seasons where the organizations empty’s all of the shelves and we see everyone play in the majors.
This ordinarily happens only after we’re out of the pennant race, but injuries seem to be deciding that early on for these Edmonton Oilers. If they can recover from the flu, the plague and the hammer of the Hockey Gods and make the second season, it’ll be one for the ages.
This team is in a world of hurt.
