News Not Good On Ohlund And Fleming

from Damian Cristodero of the St. Petersburg Times,

Lightning coach Guy Boucher gave the grimmest assessment yet about D Mattias Ohlund, who has not played a regular-season game because of two bum knees Boucher said “are worn down.”

Boucher on Thursday even hinted Ohlund might not play this season….

“It just hurts him a lot more than what he would have expected or the doctors would have expected,” Boucher said.

“It’s not about damage. It’s just something that’s difficult to manage because you can’t do much more than what’s been done. It’s pain tolerance now. It’s a question of mobility. It’s a question of can he skate at the level in the NHL he needs to follow.”

FLEMING UPDATE: Assistant coach Wayne Fleming, battling brain cancer, has been moved from his Calgary home to a hospital, said GM Steve Yzerman, who added Fleming has stopped texting and emailing his observations during games.
