James Wisniewski has had better days, as shown from his new Facebook photo he took himself. Wiz apparently has fractures in his face and could be gone for a month.
Along with the obvious seriousness of Wiz’s injury is the obvious seriousness of the team being dangerously shorthanded.
If the Canadiens can survive this amazing string of injured defencemen, then the sky must be the limit. Vancouver’s going on about missing three D-men. (It’s five, as corrected by Malandro). We’re also missing five – Markov, Gorges, Gill, Spacek, and now Wiz. Along with Mike Cammalleri up front.
But no way am I whining. Shit happens. We’ll just have to see how things evolve.
One other thing – if PK Subban can lead his team through this mess from the blueline, surely he must go to the top of the list for Rookie of the Year honours.
