Very traumatic looking there for Eric Staal...Edler assessed a kneeing major and a game misconduct. I have to imagine he's looking at an international suspension as well. I hope Eric isn't out for any extended stretch of time, but boy, it sure looks like he's gonna be out a while...

I didn't see the hit, but if it's as bad as people are saying then I wouldn't doubt he's torn some ligaments - in which case he could miss a fair chunk of the NHL season.


Just saw this:



That looks like the kind of knee injury that could end a guy's career :?

wow. that looks BRUTAL!!!! knee injuries like this very rarely end a guy's career these days because orthopedics have come so far. no doubt that he will miss a significant chunk of next season though, maybe all of it.

Hey Alex Edler, Brian Marchment is sending you a cease-and-desist letter for gimmick infringement.

Wow, that is horrible.

And are the Staal brothers cursed? Jordan's foot, Marc's eye (which apparently still isn't healed), and now Eric's knee. Man...

What would you like to know? I think you probably saw him play,soo you have some insight in his capabilities..
Young promising goalie,maybe a little small,but very quick,agressive,smart,quick legs.. Best goalie prospect we had in last 10 years,after Kristan who wasnt good in this WC!

John Gibson,born 93' in Pittsburgh - is USA no.1 goalie in WC,what do you know about him?


It was just a general information query. I know he is friends with the Koptiars...I think Gašper is one of his best friends even. He's caught my attention a little bit recently, so I was just wondering if there is a lot of excitement about him in Slovenia. Can you provide a pronunciation for me? This symbol "č" exists in Czech and seems to indicate a "ch" sound it seems. So my best guess would be: Loo-ka Grotch-nar :?:


Luca Gratchnar pronunciation :) yes

Edler got suspended for the remainder of the Championship for his foul on Staal.
