    Looked pretty bad. Best wishes from STL. You guys can have Ian Cole if you want him- hate that guy…

    Looked like his head was up when he hit. Scary. I hope he broke his face and nothing with his neck or head. When I first saw this, my first reaction was not again! But this was a freak thing.

    Or how about “I hope he didn’t break anything”…

    “I hope he broke his face.”? LOL

      I hope he didnt break anything. But you dont go that fast. Fall face first into a wall and not break a nose or something. After that he’s lucky to be walking.

      First game you’ve seen at MTS Centre? The Jet’s fans (and as you can see, I’m for Colorado) are quite possibly the best fans in the NHL. They’re loyal, smart, and extremely loud. I watch as many Jets home games as I can to see which player on the opposing team they choose to get all over every time he touches the puck. The goalie is always going to get heckled as well. They know their hockey and love their team and it is always a playoff atmosphere. Pepsi Center should be so crazy.
