Fleury out 1-3 weeks???

Postby Keith on Wed Nov 19, 2008 9:28 am

I heard this morning on 105.9 The X that Fleury is out up to three weeks according to his sources. He would not say who his source is or what the injury is. He did say that it is not the same ankle injury as last season but is on Fleury's other leg.

Bob Pompeani said this on the late news...but then this am I heard that Flower could start against Vancouver.
I am hoping that the X's source is bogus.

Yeah, the morning paper quotes MT saying he thinks Fleury might go on Saturday.

The official statement is day-to-day, so why would they tell someone in the media like Madden that its 3-6 weeks? I'm not saying he fabricated it, but I don't know where he got it.

people are going to be up in arms and demanding to know what the deal is the minute sabu gives up 4 or 5 goals and the pens lose

They're already whining about not knowing what is wrong with him, I don't think it'll get much worse.

Brodeur, Fleury, Nabokov. This crazed idiot Ducks fan traded me Brodeur for Giguere. I thought I was completely set in the goalie categories. Then they each go down 1 by 1. Luckily I picked up Boucher, Sabu, and Tim Thomas so I've still done well, but talk about some bad luck.

Some idiot in my Yahoo! league picked up...
Evgeni Nabokov
Henrik Lundqvist
Niklas Backstrom
Cam Ward
Pascal Leclaire
Tomas Vokoun

Then, he promptly stopped checking on his team. Thus, we have a team sitting in the bottom third of the league, eating up some of the best goalies in the league. I would kill for one of those goalies, considering, since Brodeur went down, I have Weekes, Sabu, Price. I'm 3rd place in the league, and I know I oculd be better, with better goaltending.

a better question is, A) why does he have 6 goalies, and B) how the hell did he get those goalies before ANYONE else picked them up?

1. Henrik Lundqvist
2. Evgeni Nabokov

Some random order the rest of the way
Niklas Backstrom
Cam Ward
Pascal Leclaire
Tomas Vokoun

it seems feasible.
