As for Crosby, I don't give a rats ass what that guy does, one way or the other. He's a pet of the NHL and sports writers.
So you would rather see Kopitar in the States, not playing games than vice versa in Europe? Excuse me, but thats just foolish. Supporting the Union? Come on...:WTF2:
He was a top scorer in last season playoffs and one of the best players on the roster, yet some still find a way to complain. What's wrong with you people? Just be glad there'll be 48+ Kings games this season.
Ill take a 32 year old injury prone 40+ goal scorer in what may be his last year in the NHL I will bet the guy pots 30 goals and people on this board go ape**** for Gagne.
Theres a lot of guys who - with extra time off - are going to be really really good through a mini-season.
Good news for Kings: Dean Lombardi says prognosis on Kopitar made in Sweden was basically right. 2-3 weeks recovery expected.
so is that from now or when he injured it, seems like it's been a week already
When you consider the 8 hour time difference it is really more like 1.9524 weeks to 2.9524 weeks
Didn't see this anywhere else:
No timetable for Willie's return.Quote:
The Kings expect him [Kopitar] to be sidelined for at least another two weeks.
