Didn't Stastny get hit on his heel? If so, it must be a bad bone bruise. If it were a broken bone, the time frame would be longer, and more precise for minimum time out. So, it seems he's probably out at least one week, probably 2 weeks. Not good. But, it could potentially have been a lot worse.

I like how the article said it was "another blow to the team, with Lehtera already out." How the crap is Lehtera being out a blow to the team? They've been a million times better in his absence.

So who's coming up to fill the void for the time being?

According to Rutherford, they don't plan to call up anyone. There's nothing suggesting he's been placed on IR from what I've seen. I guess that could change, though.

Yak's the only other healthy forward although Jaskin skated Monday. Who is this "Lehtera" you speak of?

They should just LTIR Lehtera for the cap space and bring up Agostino.

And since Sanford plays a similar style to Stastny.... But that won't happen. They'll just move Steen up.

What this hurts is depth scoring. The Blues were finally getting production from the 3rd line with Barbashev and Sanford playing together regularly.

I agree, they'll move Steen up. Putting Sanford up there would be thinking outside the box; won't happen.
Jaskin seems to be preferred over Yak (which is fine, I guess), so if he's healthy he probably plays.

17-20-91
82(?)-21-57
56-49-23
10-28-75

I'd also prefer Agostino over Jaskin or Yak but as long as Lehtera doesn't play another shift, I don't care.

That's basically what the lines shifted to vs the Avs by the 3rd period.

Just be back for the playoffs. That's pretty much all I care about.
