Kobasew Out With Sprained MCL

from Michael Russo of Russo’s Rants,

According to sources, the Wild will be without right wing Chuck Kobasew for four to six weeks with a sprained MCL. There’s also some damage to the ACL, but the swelling needs to decrease before the extent is determined. Kobasew’s scored four goals and five assists in 27 games since being acquired from Boston.

Bruins Will Be Rooting For Kobasew

from Allan Muir of Sports Illustrated,

The three ramifications: it puts every Bruin on notice that their early season malaise has consequences; it clears Kobasew’s $2.33 million hit off the cap this year and next, creating space either for an immediate deal to bolster the sagging blue line or possibly to extend center Marc Savard; and it gives Claude Julien a chance to juice the roster with a couple of hungry minor leaguers in Brad Marchand, Vlad Sobotka and Guillaume Lefebvre, all of whom were called up from Providence. It’s not a shot at Kobasew’s effort to suggest that this deal was all about addition by subtraction for the Bruins.

And maybe that’s all it was. But it wouldn’t be a surprise to hear that his former teammates will be rooting for Kobasew to provide a big boost to the Wild. At least enough of a lift to keep 29th-ranked Minnesota ahead of the last place Toronto Maple Leafs…the team whose first-round pick the Bruins own this summer.

Kobasew Focussing on a Better Year in Boston

From Fluto Shinzawa at the Boston Globe,

Like most of the Bruins, Kobasew had a season to forget in 2006-07. On Jan. 4, he suffered a concussion that knocked him out for eight games. Then he cracked his elbow Jan. 26. Finally, Kobasew (5-14 -19 in 50 total games with Calgary and Boston) missed the final seven games.

“I’m not even thinking about it,” the 25-year-old said. “Just focusing on this year.”

In the first two games of 2007-08, a healthy Kobasew has shown why the Flames signed him for $1.2 million per season.
