Leopold Out Two Months

Jordan Leopold will require surgery on his injured wrist and will be out for at least 2 months. Sigh.

On the plus side, we should see Finger in the lineup for those 2 months and get a few more glimpses at Cumiskey.

I'm at the end of my rope with this guy. I mean, I was not a huge Tanguay fan, but at least he plays most nights. I mean what have we gained from this trade really? An injuried D man who never plays. However, I do agree with what you said, we'll get the chance to see more of our younger D-men.

At this point, the trade was essentially Tanguay for two 2nd round picks. Codey Burki and Trevor Cann were the result of those picks and they are solid picks.

If those 2 work out, then the Tanguay trade could be considered mildly successful. Unfortunately we'll have to wait at least a couple years to see if that's the case.

But as for now, we'll have to settle for Leopold's injury being a door for prospects to come in. Yippee-kai-yay.

I hate to say this, but the way he's been playing the team will be much better without him.

Shane Giroux said...

Yeah, he's been playing like crap lately. Turnovers, soft play, no offense.

I was just watching Sportscenter and I think where he hurt the wrist was on that hit by Penner that led to the Gilbert goal to make it 3-2.
