Latendress having surgery

Recommended Posts

Apparently he's got a torn labrum in his hip and a sports hernia. Fletcher says he's confident LTD will return before the end of the season. I'm not holding my breath.

Just as he was having a couple of good games in a row, he goes out. Is there something about the ice at the X? Lots of injuries last few years.

He looked like something was wrong since training camp. I knew this was going to happen with him. I wonder why they waited a month before figuring this out?

What the heck. That just sucks. The have been better then a lot of people expected, but we need all of our players to go anywhere. IS this bad off and early season conditioning? or what? Seems there is never a shortage of grain injuries and hornias in the Wild lockerroom,.

There has been a lot of talk about Lats having a poor work ethic. Rumor has it that he came into training camp way out of shape and that is what triggered his injury. Would not surprise me if it is true. Him and Pouliot both have had poor work ethics in the past and that is why the trade was equal.

He will be out for the rest of the season I am guessing. So now we have him and PMB out indefinitely. I honestly think PMB's career is over but that is a different story.

If guys on this team like Havlat and Koivu start stepping up and performing like they are getting paid to do then we will do okay. We are right down at the bottom of the scoring totals so far this season and nobody is really stepping up as a goal scorer. Cullen, Brunette, Havlat, and Koivu all need to step it up because as we sit Clutterbuck leads the team in goals. That is just pathetic. Number two in goals is a defenseman Burns. If the Wild want to make the playoffs they need more guys to step up their play.

    • Pumper don't forget to register your bird.
    • Had 3 long beards come out gobbl8ng and running but not to me.  Had them all fired up but they obviously had another destination in mind.
    • I didn’t know grackles fished either.  Interesting. 
    • Was checking back to see you with a bird pic @Borch
    • So this is not a new thing!  Interesting.  I keep finding more and more complex behavior in so many of these "dumb" animals!  So many of them are anything but dumb.
    • When I was a kid, we used to have a pond in our yard. We would keep fish and minnows in there. The grackles would clean in out! We had to resort to putting a cover over it.
    • Last Thursday on a visit to my sister in Rock Rapids IA, we made a circuit through the Island Park there.  At the low dam just past the former railroad bridge which is now a walking path we saw a group of grackles fishing at the edge of the white water where it ran against the rocks at the shore line.  There probably were a dozen or so all told moving back and forth and some on the rocks at the other shore line.  In something like half an hour or less we saw various of the birds bring out minnows and eat them on the shore to a total of at least 8.  They also contested for the better fishing spots and tried to horn in on other birds' catches;   they would fly out to quite a bit up on shore with a catch to eat it there. I never expected to see grackles fishing.  I never heard of that before, but then it wouldn't be the first time I didn't know about something relatively common.
    • I've seen deer there, too.  I go by there on my way to work about 3:30 am S S & M.
    • Now they're gobbling...  seem to be getting a little closer.
