Green LTIP, Pearson and Jones Called Up
So Darryl Sutter finally admitted Jeff Carter’s foot is broken. Didn’t I tell you this about a week ago? There are no secrets. Like when Buffalo called a press conference for today. Darren dredger knew everything at least an hour before the conference.
Last night I heard Quicks injury was “significant” and posted that on LGK. Today, my insider told me “no idea” when asked how long Quick would be out, but judging by the fact that he was a) sent back to L.A. for an MRI b) Jones was called up and c) they put Greene on the IR, it doesn’t look good. But I won’t speculate how long Quick will be out. Carter, yes, I knew. Quick, I don’t.
Greene had his back surgically repaired last year. You do the math. Probably why he hasn’t been signed to an extension either.
Jones better play better than he did in the pre-season because from what I saw, he blew chunks with corn kernel bits
Pearson will be interesting. The Kings now have skill (Vey, Toffoli, Pearson) as well as grit (Fraser, Nolan, Carcillo) so maybe if ANY of these players is excellent on the penalty kill, they can replace the absolutely inept Trevor Lewis once and for all who couldn’t hit the broadside of a barn with a medicine ball.
I do feel really bad for Colin Fraser as he’s simply on borrowed time.
