How about the contraction of teams rather than games? Could easily contract by 4 or 6 teams. I don't want any less games though. Enjoy them too much.

Here's hoping it's not too serious and he's back for the playoffs.
Another two points. We've pretty much locked up the West and the Presidents trophy. It's not going to matter too much if we keep losing bodies...
Either way, I think AV should be seriously considered for the Jack Adams. The guy has made the team a powerhouse while playing with some serious man-games lost to injury.

Second one in a year boys... we certainly ain't seeing him until the playoffs, and even then... Sigh a couple key pieces now. But still a chance with this one.
kinda pessimistic Toucan.. just cause he got his bell rung is not the same as " gone for the year ", he went off under his own steam not on a stretcher or even needing help from a team mate.. Good chance he'll get an " all clear " in a few days though probably will be rested until the playoffs . I wonder if in this " modern " era we aren't making a mountain out of a molehill with the Doc of the opposing team making the concussion call.. I imagine Tiger Williams would have been diagnosed by todays standards as having maybe 50 of those , yet he retired from hockey with all his marbles in place and is now running a very successful business. Every boxer that ever went into the ring .. same thing and very few had permanent damage..
