Price Needs More Time
The argument is certainly there that the Montreal Canadiens and/or Carey Price may have jumped the gun for returning from his lower-body/leg injury, as he was pulled from Wednesday night's game against the New York Rangers, starting the game, playing two periods and not starting the 3rd, after his injury flared up again.
The first time around, Price missed 11 games with the injury and already on Thursday, he was placed on the Injured Reserve, which will cost him at least a week on the shelf and it will be interesting to see whether or not it will cost him any more than that.
When Price left the first time from his injury, he was 1st in pool scoring, upon his return, he was 37th and now, with 24 points this year, he leaves again in 18th place in pool scoring. Price has already won 10 games with 2 shutouts and has been good for 2 points for every 60 minutes he plays.
John S., who was sitting in 3rd place for four weeks, has dropped down to 5th place in Week Eight, improving his Waiver Draft position and could still improve upon that draft pick before the end of the week. His team is only 2 points up on Troy, but now 11 points clear of Ryan in 7th, so it would take a pretty good collapse to fall that far. If he can improve his pick and still keep pace, that would be ideal, but it would be even more ideal if all of his players were healthy for upcoming games.
