2012 Playoffs Injury Thread

Good news for the Canucks this morning with both Daniel Sedin and Kassian back on the ice for practice.

For the Kings, Jeff Carter was also back skating with the team today, but he was wearing a different colour jersey.

Elsewhere around the league, Toews continues to practice, but signs point to him suiting up for the Hawks first game.

Ballard on the ice too. I don't suspect they'll let Ballard back in the lineup unless someone gets injured - when was the last time he played?

My money is on Halak would be a better choice for the main starter in the playoffs anyway... makes me appreciate our netminding duo even more!

I mentioned the report briefly in the series thread but didn't really comment on it.

I wouldn't be shocked to not see Daniel in the lineup because as Crosby has noted a guy can be symptom free and cleared based on anything medical but still not feel quite right. That was the mistake Crosby made earlier in the year when he came back. This second time coming back he mentioned specifically he felt much better this time around despite being cleared before. Ballard has mentioned similar things of not feeling quite right despite being able to do everything.

I would be shocked if Daniel actually experienced a headache and they allowed him to skate the next day. I just don't think the canucks let him back on the ice at all after experiencing symptoms again.

With all that said what Dad wants or thinks might not mean anything. We'll know soon enough if Daniel has a game day skate with the team or not.

Good news was Daniel went out for a skate this morning before main practise.

I think he could be back for game 4, and maybe an outside chance for Sunday.

I curse Duncan Keith and his whole entire family.

I hope next time we meet, Kassian takes your head and smashes it into the end glass. I'll contribute $20 to the $2500 fine that will ensue.

C'mon math, Kassian?

He'd get 10 games easy.

Bad news on the Daniel front.

Via Krisin Reid's Twitter:

"I've been told not only will Daniel Sedin not travel to LA for Games 3 and 4- he will not be available at all in this series"

Not good at all. The Canucks are in tough without him. Hope he's not suffering too much and will be ready for the second round providing the Canucks can show enough moxy to come back and win this series.
