Schneider: Done For Playoffs

Well…if you’re looking for another bit of adversity, another footnote to recall when the Wings raise the Cup in a month or so, this should do nicely.  Mathieu Schneider has played his last game of the 2007 postseason.


Mathieu Schneider suffered a broken wrist in the first period of Saturday’s game and will not play again in the post-season. Either Brett Lebda will return to action or Derek Meech or Jonathan Ericsson—both up from Grand Rapids—will be pressed into duty.
Mike Babcock: “(Lebda) When he’s ready, he’ll play. We have Meech and Ericsson here now. There’s nothing you can do. I kind of expected to have Kronwall, Lebda and Schneider, but that’s just life.”

So…a blueline corps of Lidstrom, Markov, Chelios, Lilja, Quincey and Meech? 

No firm word on the return of Lebda, but the urgency is definitely accelerated.  Naturally, there’s been nothing written lately of Niklas Kronwall.

About Abel to Yzerman

Welcome to Abel to Yzerman, a Red Wing blog since 1977.  No other site on the internet has better-researched, fact-laden and better prepared discussions than A2Y.  Re-phrase: we do little research, find facts and stats highly overrated and claim little to no preparation.  There are 19 readers of A2Y. No more, no less. All of them, except maybe one, are juvenile in nature.  Reminding them of that in the comment section will only encourage them to prove that.
