Martin Havlat Hurt.

It's official the Wild suck and now they have injury problems as one of their only star players Martin Havlat is now on the shelf with an injury also Cal Clutterbuck, Peter Sykora, Pierre-Marc Bouchard are all out with various ailments. If anyone cares resident tough guy Derek Boogaard is hurt as well as he is still recovering from a concussion, while I find his fight entertaining I don't see him scoring many goals. You have to wonder if the former Wild Coach Jacque Lemaire is smiling yet?
ANAHEIM, Calif. — The Wild suffered another painful loss Wednesday night, dropping a 3-2 decision to the Anaheim Ducks and losing top-line forward Martin Havlat in the process.

Wild coach Todd Richards dropped the dreaded words that seem to be replayed over and over again when he announced Havlat's injury after the game.

"Pulled groin," he said. "Day to day."

For much of their game at the Honda Center, the Wild looked like the equal of the sometimes still-mighty Ducks. But too often, lapses and breakdowns left the Wild's defense and even their power play resembling recess time at an elementary school.

"What really killed us was our power play," Richards said. "Every time we got on the power play, we couldn't do a thing. It was tough for us to get it in their zone, and it seemed like they had it on their stick more than we had it on ours."

There were no moral victories on this evening, as the Wild dropped to 1-4 this season, 0-4 on the road.
BallHype: hype it up!


  1. Whats with these Europeans and pulled groins? Makes you wonder.

  2. No way.

    Martin Havlat, injured?

    That's NEVER happened before.

    Seriously, why do teams sign such often injured players and then act surprised when they get hurt again?

    "I pulled my groin last night. It was painful...and kind of exciting." --Rodney Dangerfield
