Even Fucking Jay McKee Is Fucking Injured

Apologies for the profanity, but I’ve run out of ways to describe Penguins getting injured that don’t involve the word “fucking,” so you’re stuck with that title…

Defenseman Jay McKee has a finger infection that will keep him from playing for two to four weeks, coach Dan Bylsma said after practice today at Mellon Arena. He is the fifth regular on defense to be injured.

On the flip side, it appears there is a good chance defenseman Sergei Gonchar will return tomorrow night when the Penguins play at Ottawa. He has missed the past 12 games because of a broken wrist. If Gonchar can’t play, the team will promote a defenseman from its Wilkes-Barre/Scranton farm club. (P-G)

“Finger infection?” I think that’s just medical mumbo-jumbo for “Upper body injury.”

On the plus side, Gonchar might return against Ottawa, which would force the Pens to come up with some new excuses when their power play keeps sucking. And if he isn’t ready to go by Thursday, the Pens will call up another defenseman from Wilkes-Barre, raising the question: Who in God’s name is playing D for Wilkes-Barre right now? Francois Leroux? Brad Werenka? Craig Patrick’s entire draft classes from 1995-2000? Me?? I think it’s me.

    ++ for the Leroux.

    Up to this point, I was doing ok with the injuries. I saw McKee take one to the chest the other night and thought “great, here we go”. I have no idea how that turned into a finger infection though, wtf.

    If Orpik comes back and Eaton goes out, we can call this a conspiracy. Not as deep as the Russian Olympic team conspiracy going on right now, but still…

    and I just received word that Mark Eaton is questionable tonight.

    I believe if this was a game, I just won something.

    Oh yes, pain and suffering. That’s right…
