    Default JVR out until mid to late November

    Not terrible in terms of how long he'll be out, but far from ideal in terms of trying to get in sync with a new team.

    Yikes. Glad I just traded him in a big blockbuster in my other dynasty.

    Damn man, JVR, Tuch, Perry and Wilson's suspension mean I'm down 4 wingers in the Dobber Pro league already and the season isn't even a week old yet! They were all healthy/active when we drafted too
    Without me, it's only "aweso".

    Ouch. Tough also that the NHL doesn't require specificity in terms of the injury.

    We know generally it's a knee, but not what exactly. The specifics of what exactly with the knee is ailing makes a BIG difference in terms of true timeline for return and the potential for re-aggravation upon return.

    To be honest, you have to expect the suspensions with Tom Wilson. He just plays a reckless style trying to hurt people. It's what he does.

    For sure... but with the DoPS the way it is, I don't think anyone expected him to get a quarter of the season.

    yep, whether he deserved the 20 or not is beside the point that DoPS doesn't typically hand down suspensions like that. I'm glad they did, but it was unexpected for sure.

    Back to JvR ... this is really going to hurt his PP1 aspirations with the Flyers. Simmonds should be entrenched now with the big boys on the top unit, and if he performs well there (which he should, if healthy) that won't be good news for van Riemsdyk owners.
