I'd like to be optimistic and say that this is precautionary because the Canucks pretty much have a playoff spot in the bag. Tanev did go back out after the hit and played. I didn't see Higgins go down, but it seems his is not a very serious injury. Then again, Kesler played 6 games on a broken foot, so you never know.
Truth be told, I would like to see Schroeder get called up to play wing with Roy and Hansen. He would be a huge offensive upgrade over Weise and it's not like he's a liability out there. Maybe he can learn from being up close to the kind of player both he and the organization hope he can become. If I'm Roy, I'm looking over at Weise and thinking, "F*ck me, how am I going to succeed with this guy on my wing?"
Tanev's injury could be a real kick to the junk if it lasts well into the playoffs. Garrison's been looking better on the right side of late, and Ballard/Alberts held their own last night but I don't think anybody's comfy looking at that right side long-term if Tanev's not there.
At least Kesler's back...
