Tim Connolly told Ron Wilson after practice that he's doubtful for Thursday.

So it begins.  I know people will say "relax" but I can't believe how injury prone this guy is.

Starting to wonder if this guy has AJ Burnett disease, where he didn't see to be willing to play through any pain and would pull himself from the lineup.  I don't know anything, but when a player (not a doctor) goes to the coach and says he's doubtful, it makes you wonder.

Disappointing that he'll be out but hardly surprising.  Burke knew exactly what he was getting when he signed the guy.

I kind of see your point but then again pushing himself into action and then making it worse would be a dumb thing to do right at the beginning of the season.

What could he possibly have from falling into the boards, that is serious enough to keep him out 2 weeks and not heal, but not serious enough to have a length of time put on it?

Franson's direct quote:

"Right now I'm not too thrilled with it," Franson said of where he's at. "You've got to just, I don't know, stick with it. It's a tough situation. We've got some good players here. Be interesting to see how it turns out."

"It would have been nice to be able to get locked down with somebody," Franson said. "But we're big boys, we can handle it."

Not exactly anything to be worried about. I'd be more concerned if he was alright with the decision.

Lots of things - sprains, strains, bruised shoulders, jammed wrists, etc. And, based on the fact that he's at least been practicing, none of them too serious.

He said what he heard from Wilson in the media scrum wasn't a good thing, but it seemed pretty good to me (despite the circumstances).  From that same article...

Quote
Wilson's only comment on Franson that day?

"Right now [Franson] is our seventh defenceman, but I wouldn't hesitate to play him in any situation," he said. "That's just the way it is right now."

I have a feeling watching Connolly is going to be like watching Coco...rare and nerve racking.

If anyone is going to be in my neck of the woods.  (Trenton)  The Leafs will be at the R.C.A.F. arena for three days.  Told the skates would be open to the public.  Wonder if they bused or flew in?

"And a day after being placed on waivers, Joey Crabb was back at practice, as with all the injuries, he gets a chance to stay around a while longer. Darryl Boyce and Matt Lashoff, meanwhile, cleared waivers and went to the Marlies. "

Im surprised they would keep Crabb around over  Boyce. I thought Boyce had a decent camp , better than Crabb , and I thought Boyce was a better player last year

The arrival of Steckel has sent Crabb back to the minors.

I don't think their relative worth had anything to do who stayed around. I think it was when the Leafs wanted to send the other two through waivers. It's like a chess game this time of year I think and with so many players going through waivers, Boyce being a bit more valuable than Crabb, made it worth it to send them down at the same time I think. That's my take on it. I don't think anybody cares if Crabb gets picked up.
