Injury Gods.

The other day I was kidding when I said that I thought the guys appeared to have taken the summer off judging by the number of groin pulls that were showing up in locker rooms.

But now i'm serious.

Check out the Montreal Canadiens locker room and you'll see ten veterans suffering from minor injuries. Because alot is a lot i'm going to give you it in list form:

Saku Koivu

hand (on someone's face in a fight)
Steve Begin

sore hip
Guillaume Latendresse
Robert Lang
Alex Tanguay

Christopher Higgins
Roman Hamrlik
Georges Laraque
Patrice Brisebois
Alex Kovalev

From the Canadian Press,

"Carbonneau is loathe to pick a single reason for the run of ailments, although he said bad luck certainly played a part. Most of the players had been skating on their own or in groups at least two or three weeks before training camp began.

There is also the soft or substandard ice on some of the rinks teams have practised and played on in the pre-season."
