Skinner and Pitkanen out with concussions

14 Dec

The Carolina ¬†Hurricanes are down two of their best players plus Brian Boucher being injured recently. As a Canes fan, I’m devastated and I hope for an incredibly speedy recovery and that they are better soon. With that being said, as a Canes fan, I don’t know how the Canes are going to play without them. They obviously haven’t been doing very well and this is yet another obstacle they have to overcome this year. I really hate the fact that Skinner is gone. He’s one of the best on the team!

I don’t want Skins to be another Crosby. I don’t want him out for almost a year. This is horrible news because he’s such a young, talented player and knowing he’ll be out for a long time doesn’t make me happy at all. The Canes not only lost him but Pitkanen as well! Pitkanen, known as ‘Pancake’ in Kristonian, is a promising defenceman who has helped the Canes over the past couple years. I’m not the hugest Pitkanen fan but I know he’s a good member of the team and it’s such a sad loss that he’s gone for now. Not only are these two amazing players gone but also the Hurricanes new goalie, Brian Boucher. Brian Boucher hasn’t won every game he’s played with Carolina but he’s doing much better than people expected. He’s a fantastic new member of the team and the fact that he’s injured early this season sucks!

The fact that these guys are gone is horrible and I, and the rest of the Caniac nation, will miss them very much. I know I am praying for a fast recovery and wish that the Hurricanes do well.

Now if only this could make up for this loss...
