Both Havlat and Ohlund undergo season ending surgery.
links are listed below.
Not surprising. Ohlund has been a shell of his former stardom since that eye injury ages ago.
Havlat… sigh. Last time I pick him in my pool. Serves me right, though I took a risk on him, I also took a risk on Gaborik, who is having a career year.
This is a blessing for Chicago if they can pick up a top 5 draft pick. With a healthy squad all year, this team woulda made the playoffs.
I agree Ohlund hasnt been the same since then and sorry about the Havlat part good player just a cancer for his team as for Gabby what can you say bout him such a great player.
All in all Chicago would be a scary team to face while at full health especially with all the young talent but they just need a goalie when
Hehe clicked ok before i could finish but i was going to say they will need a goalie when Khabibulin is done
I have an idea to reduce injuries around the league.
And that is?
That's the idea…..to reduce injuries around the league.
Ohlund didn't look good last year, but he's been really steady this year. This is a major blow to our defense. He's had a good season this year.
Where's that guy who was claiming Havlat's repetitive injuries were purely incidental??? The guy's shoulder is friggin made of glass!
So you're saying that Ohlund peaked in 1999?
Not exactly.I think playing for Team Sweden in the Olympics in 2002 gave him his confidence and form back. He had a good season in 01-02, got injured again the next year, and had another good season in 03-04, but since then, despite his team's overall performance, he hasn't been so good, and his +- shows that too, despite finally be on a playoff bound team to boot!He's only been over +10 in those two years mentioned above, and +5 thrice! He's a Top 4 on few teams these days.
This is why no one wanted to trade for Martin Havlat. It would be like signing Eric Lindros now. Always one hit away from being out half the season or longer. You cant' depend on him, and certainly can't tie up huge salary for a guy never in the lineup.
Probably wouldn't crack the top 4 on that juggernaut defense of the Penguins hey.
