So... just how much does anyone think the loss of Max for the next month or so will affect the Habs as a team?

Yes, he had amassed 4 assists, but the line with Desharnais and Cole were not going great guns IMHO. Max may not have been the problem himself, but he did contribute with some iffy play the way I saw it.

Now it may end up the team adjusts quite well with Eller (who IMO is more skilled with the puck if not scoring goals). It surely will change the type of play on the line. A new look for Cole and Desharnais could get them going.

Solid points, Cole is known for slow starts so I wasn't concerned but as of now this was/is the second line, maybe playing teams second lines will get them going as well

Max didn't do too well in Europe I believe. He was injured at some point and returned. Maybe he was still tentative as a result and not too confident.

I love it when we seemingly have to accept when players are slow starters... we've heard it so often it loses some value IMO. Cole's first year ir was a new team new linemates etc., but to start this year after last... not acceptable to me. Desharnais looked decent in Europe and looks slow and weak on the puck so far... go figure.

I seem to recall another pro athlete was back playing after 2 weeks. The appendectomy they perform today is just 3 little holes, not like the old days when they sliced you open. It's a lot less intrusive.

The "out 3-4 weeks" thing might just to being careful. Better to err on the side of caution, as it were.

I don't think they can do that if it burst after talking with my dad.

From HIO

Pacioretty sent out this tweet shortly after noon on Sunday:

“Thanks for the support fans, just a small bump in the road , but can’t wait to get back to playing soon.. ”

Wolverine!!!!

Can't say i'm surprised. Wouldn't be uncalled to see an athlete return to duty after only 2 weeks following this type of surgery. I doubt it will be the top end of 4 weeks knowing Patches.

Took the full 90 minute practice today, did all drills including the wind-sprints at the end. Rediculous.

I kind of expected it. Top flight athletes are a different breed from you and me. Patches probably also had the best surgeon money can buy in Montreal to do the operation as 'neatly' as possible.

Dr. Recchi would probably accuse Pacioretty of never having had the surgery.

:lol:

Per Habs I/O

Pacioretty was not wearing a non-contact jersey and looks like he’s ahead of the team’s original prognosis putting him out of the lineup for 3-4 weeks.

Pacioretty did every drill with his teammates during the 70-minute practice.
