Tallying up the injuries

Monday, April 6, 2009

I bet you by the end of this season - whenever the end may be - there will be talk about the injuries. Most likely the talk will mostly be about the underachieving and overpartying guys - and Carbo - but there will be talk about the injuries. And why not? After enjoying a season of relatively injury free in 2008, fate decided to make the Habs pay for the 2009 season. Not once have all the players that Gainey and Co had in place at the beginning of the year all played together. Someone has always been injured. Let's take a look, shall we? This info was nabbed from sportsnet. Unfortunately it doesn't say when the guys came back but that's beside the point. And... I'm not sure why Sergei and Andrei weren't listed after they were injured against Chicago and the Islanders. Was Andrei technically benched for that Leafs game?

Andrei Markov (from Apr 3, 2009): Left game - undisclosed injury (will be gone 3 weeks according to RDS)
Mathieu Schneider (from Apr 3, 2009): Left game - upper-body injury (heck, I'll be presumptious and say IR)
