via the Tampa Bay Times,

Lightning veteran wing Ryan Callahan had an emergency appendectomy Monday night, and his return date to the team is undetermined.

Callahan, 30, will miss tonight’s Game 6 against the Canadiens, a big blow as Tampa Bay tries to close out its best-of-seven Eastern Conference semifinal. Callahan didn’t practice Monday, with the team saying he first felt abdominal pain in the afternoon. He was admitted to Tampa General Hospital, where he was diagnosed with acute appendicitis. Callahan was in the emergency room by 9 p.m., out by 10 and in stable condition, team spokesman Bill Wickett said.

Tsk tsk tsk.  The real problem is no heart.

If he was Canadian he wouldn’t miss a single game.

Garth. A few of us Canadians will not find that funny. Even more so if your French or european.

Why would Franco Canadians have a problem with that?  Quebecois in particular. I seem to remember a certain rather famous goalie by the name of Roy, who missed one game due to appendicitis but put off surgery so he could finish the playoffs.

I can live with people not finding my joke funny.

Sorry. Better explain in case it gets taken out of context.

I thought Garth’s comment was great & had to think (and make fun) of Coach’s Corner. Good tough Canadian boy, French guys with visors, weak Europeans and all that stuff he spews. It’s poking fun at Cherry’s „subtile racism“ (thanks oldsuck).

Hell. If I wanted to get everyone’s shit in a knot I’d say: „Unsere Schlittenhundeführerverein meinte, das Uwe Krupp die Besten Red Wing alle Zeiten war“
