First of all Jonathan Ericsson's injury seems to be much lighter than we initially thought. It's a bone bruise and the official reports of his time out varies from indefinetly to at least 2-3 weeks. We will know more in a week or so according to master Ken. I am extremely relieved by this. I couldn't really face another guy going down long term right now.
What else can I write about? (I am bored, waiting for my spaghetti water to boil).
Oh yeah. Wanna read some great writing? Here are two great new blogposts that you need to read: First of all read how the Chief at Abel to Yzerman tears a critic/Wild blogger a new arsehole. Secondly the wildest and scrappiest of Red Wings bloggers Natalie, at the Scrappy Octopus gives advice on fashion fouls on game night. I should probably tell you that her blog has explicit content, but hey, you already read me and I swear like a sailor, so what would the point be?
Lastly, one of the weirder rumours coming out of the NHL:
The Philly Fourwrites that:
This one is out of the bizarre rumor mill, however, a credible source told “thephillyfour” a possible affair could be the reason the Flyers locker room appears to be split this season.
According to the source Jeff Carter had an affair with Scott Hartnell’s wife and the entire locker room is split over the situation.
If this is true the question must be asked, could a trade of one of the two players be the only remedy for such a problem?
Also in other Flyers Wives gossip, Danny Brierre is rumored to be close to getting a divorce with his wife.
Too bad for Tiger Woods no one cares about hockey, this story could get just as ugly.
Huh, that's quite a rumour. Let's hope it's not true. Scotty Hartnell played here in Oslo for a year and though he played for the enemy team, I still got the impression that he's an extremely nice guy. So I'm hoping for not true here, but the rumours of trouble in the Philly room are coming from everywhere, so who knows. A person I would call a credible source told be Riley Cote is getting a divorce from his truly gorgeous wife. Don't know how that would upset team chemistry though, so I am just gonna make up my own rumour and assume that she's banging Michael Richards. No wait, she used to bang Richards, but now she's with Rosby.
In other Flyer news, the only Norwegian in the NHL Ole Kristian Tollefsen got his first game in a month last night. He used the opportunity to get himself injured for a few weeks.
Now I promise not to mention the Flyers for a while
