Sykora likely out for this weekend...

Postby spi on Wed Oct 08, 2008 5:10 pm

So says MT in todays presser on Pens TV.

I am wondering if there is something else going on with Sykora. I hope he is ok because it would be nice to get him back in the lineup.

Didn't he have a groin injury? Those things can linger.

This isn't good though.

Bah. Sykie would've been a nice boost to the powerplay and the team in general. Hope he's ready soon.

that's is too bad~ we're not exactly deep in that position and certainly not with Sykora's shot.

i was just thinking about our powerplay blunders over last weekend... i'm really not worried about it at all. From last year, the PP is missing as many as 6 different ingredients (malone, the guy that went to detroit, whitney, gonch, sykora, and even gary)...

Getting sykora back would be quite helpful in that regard. Plus allowing time for chemistry to develop will be helpful as well. I like what i saw from Mr. Goligoski on sunday. Obviously we will never be where we were last year, considering we are short our top-5 NHL defenseman, but we will still have a top-10 powerplay.

Sykora seems more injury prone then I thought.

We have to keep in mind the penalty kill that they were playing against. Thats a tough unit to play when your powerplay is still trying to gel.

Agreed. A shortened camp and pre-season, **** ice in an irregular rink, a lack of your two best Offensive Defenseman to quarterback the pp, and Ottawa having a damn good pk squad all mixes together to make a pretty crappy set of circumstances in regards to the pp. With time, practice, and healing I'm sure things will get better.

sucks to see him miss more time, but if there is a time of year you'd want it to happen this would be it. Plus this allows us to get different looks at some other guys on the top lines and see what they can do.

I'd say somewhere between 99 and 101 percent.

yet he still got a point on the pp at the end.

the entire WB/S team got smoked tonight. but I'm willing to cut him a little slack since he just got into town that day. give him a few practices and he will be fine.

He's probably very down about not getting a chance. And he's probably not adjusted to getting back from the trip yet.

Sykora is probably out for another week .. at least .. and this would be a chance to try Pesonen on the powerplay, and in Sykora's regular spot on Malkin's line as well. But, no .. they sent him down to WBS.. never having bothered to try him with Crosby during any of the camp or preseason games. Way to go, Therrien, you effing moron !!!!

Huh? He missed a total of 1 game last season. In fact he missed a total of about 25 games over the last 8 years.
