It’s early, but so far the outlook for Marian Hossa‘s latest injury from Monday is pretty optimistic.

Chicago Blackhawks head coach Joel Quenneville said Hossa’s condition is “not bad,” according to’s Tracey Myers. He’s labeled as day-to-day with an upper-body injury.

In fact, he even left the door slightly open for the 34-year-old to play in Wednesday’s showdown with the Anaheim Ducks.

That might be overly optimistic, although Hossa has managed to make some very swift comebacks from two seemingly worrisome injuries already in 2013. Despite all the health questions, he’s scored 13 goals and 10 assists for 23 points in 28 games so far this season.

    I had a real good look at this in several slow motion replays: It looks like the Avalanche filled several rows behind the Hawks bench with a menacing troop of Girl Guides…?

    Marian was so unnerved by their fierce looks and colourful badges, he bottled out and headed for the sanctuary of Hawks’ dressing room claiming injury…the League is investigating!

    In the meantime, unsettled by Hossa’s habitual day-to-day status, Hawks management is looking at revising his contract; not on day-to-day basis but pay for play. A punch clock is expected to be installed at the Hawks’ bench before all games forthwith…

      Yet another useless, nonsensical comment from the “high” one. A true hockey fan wants to see ALL of the best players remain healthy and on the ice where they belong. I want Hoss back in the lineup just as much as I want to see Malkin, Karlsson and every other superstar compete and continue to make the NHL the best league in the world. Crawl back in your den and hibernate, oh High one.

      In the meantime, ignorant bandwagon “fans” like yourself throw crap at a fan! TRUE Hockey fans enjoy the game and the many players from ALL teams that make the game exciting. Hossa is one of the most respected NHL players in the game today, by his peers and most “true fans”. Your rambling has done nothing but solidify your ignorance. Well, and show that there are 4 other people that are in the same boat as you!

      Here’s some advice……when you have something smart and intelligent to say, say it…until then I would save face by shutting the hell up! I suggest watching as much Hockey as you can, that is not your team and learn to respect the game and the players that play it.
