Okposo Out With Swine Flu, Weight Also Out

According to various sources, Kyle Okposo has the H1N1 virus and will not be skating for the next three games.

Also reported is that captain Doug Weight will be out 4-6 weeks with the same "upper-body" injury sustained in a game against New Jersey a few days ago.

This will put a damper into things with Okposo being out and Weight will be missed on the powerplay. Once again, as stated in my previous blog, Comeau and Bergenheim need to step up and fill in for Okposo. Maybe a nice contribution from Tambellini would not hurt either. More to come.

I'm totally sick of this 'upper body injury' BS. What advantage does it give them over anyone to keep this injury a secret?

Weight missed a lot of time last year too. This is a bummer.
