...and has decided that it's Joe Sakic's fate to miss six more weeks of the season.
Now, this causes me some stress.
I'm going to two Avalanche games this season. The first one is in about two weeks when the Avs come to town to face the Flyers. I have been to every Avs-Flyers game in Philadelphia since '97 and I'm saddened that I won't be able to see Sakic one last time in Philadelphia.
The second game is February 28th against the Rangers. That will be my last chance to see Sakic live. I just hope that he's healthy for that game.
Despite the injury, the Avs still have a chance. They're offense has been better the last couple of games and all this means is that the top players (Stastny, Hejduk, Svatos, Wolski, Smyth) need to consistently play well in each and every game.
Ah well. We'll see what happens.
