2012 Off Season Discussion

Recommended Posts

I have noticed that Tlusty hasn't been on the Kladno game roster/box scores for the past eight games or so. Does anybody know what's up with him?

Assuming I am intrepreting a translated webpage correctly, it looks like he is recovering from a write injury (torn ligaments). He is back practicing, and is expected to be able to return to play at the end of the international break. (Again, assuming I am intrepreting the translation correctly.)

I wish I knew too Whaler, I've been trying to find something but I guess you have to understand Czech to know.

Seems to me that if possible, Skinner shold think about getting a few Checkers games in.

I was against him risking injury for the long haul, but now he will either get a few games in to tune up, or if the season is gone he will get to keep his skills up.

A few days ago guys who played in the shortened season from the second to last lockout who were'nt playing somewhere previously hit a wall after a couple of games back.

In a shortened season, the fewer guys hitting that wall the better. Teams with a lot of them might find themselves in a hole there isn't time to climb out of in a short season. Might also make sense to use a few extra Checkers early.

@ice_chip: Skinner's agent, Rick Curran, said uncertainty of CBA negotiations and status of guaranteed contracts led him to advise Skinner to stay put.

@ice_chip: @horaxhorax Hall apparently had to insure his 7-year extension against an injury in AHL.

@ice_chip: Curran said Skinner wanted to play for Checkers. Said he told Skinner prudent decision was not to take the risk because of dollars involved.

I agree with you. Here are some comments by Chip as to why Skinner hasn't\isn't lighting up some AHLr's.

I wonder if he could get a cheaper insurance policy if he committed to just a few games. I will play no more than 7 games without a new policy. Could the Checkers pick up the policy and the Canes re-emburse them when the lockout is over?

Just keep hearing about how no amount of training and scrimmaging can get you in game shape.

The more guys arriving in game shape the bigger advantage.

Guys like E.Staal historically start slow anyway. There will be no time to make up a slow start this year.

I've thought about slow starts and E. Staal for a while, since they seem to go hand in hand. No play that I've heard of at any level may mean another slooooooow start to what season there is. To be optimistic, I can hope that last season would make up for a couple of seasons, if not several.

Chip Alexander@ice_chipRyan Murphy on Team Canada for WJC.

In all the discussion sarcasm.jpg about our prospects kind of forgot about Ryan.

Wonder what happens to the 10 game tryout rule.

Wonder how his D has been.

I had figured he'd get a shot w/ the Canes.

Looks like Tlusty is back from his injury after missing something like 12 games. First game back after Christmas he had an assist, the second game back he scored two goals. He now has 23 points in 23 games and is a +17.

Bad news via Craig Custance's twitter feed:

"If season starts soon, Hurricanes will have to do it without Tuomo Ruutu. Told hip surgery will sideline him until May 1 at the earliest."

Bad news via Craig Custance's twitter feed:

Did he injure it this season or was an old reoccurring injury?

While the NHL may soon solve its labor issues and could end up playing a 48-game regular season, the Canes will do it without forward Tuomo Ruutu.

General manager Jim Rutherford said Wednesday that Ruutu recently underwent hip surgery in Colorado and would sidelined until April at the earliest.

"We're not sure how long he will be out," Rutherford said. "Certainly through the regular season, if we play it. Maybe longer."

Rutherford said he did not know how Ruutu sustained the injury, noting the hard-charging Finn passed his year-end physical after last season.

"In August he started complaining about it," Rutherford said. "He tried a number of things to rehab it but it got to the point the doctors recommended surgery.

"There was really nothing that signaled surgery might be necessary. It just flared up. Like most athletes, hockey players have a lot of wear and tear on their hips."

Ruutu, 29, was the Canes' fifth-leading scorer last season with 34 points in 72 games, scoring 18 goals and adding 16 assists. He led all Canes skaters with 151 hits.

Well this just totally stinks.

From a scoring point of view I think Tlusty can step in and at least provide what Ruutu did point wise last season. But were going to lose that physicality and what a great attitude too.

Good thing we're deep at wing.

Jussi-EStaal-Semin

Skinner-JStaal-Tlusty

Is still a formidable top 6.

The question still remains who is the third line center, and this pretty much rules out Jussi for that.
