Wil Borgen out 6-8 weeks with a Fractured Forearm

With Borgen only having played four games so far this season, the regular season projected to finish May 8, six to eight weeks from today being April 6 to 20, leaving only 10 to 17 Sabres games afterwards, I would expect he gets five more games in and then is shelved the rest of the time to preserve his ELC.

I think he was making a good case to get ice time, especially considering our injuries, but the shrewd asset management move is to give him a cup of coffee and then we'll see him next year.[edit: see below]

Hmm, why do I doubt that will happen for any number of reasons. Either we will somehow still be in a playoff race, will have lost more dmen by then to require his usage, or the team will just be stupid. 

 

Granted I think his ELC ends regardless; the only time the ELC is pushed on is that the start of their ELC. Borgen's expires this year regardless.

Let me do some reading.

Quote

ELS (Entry Level Slide) – If a player who is signed to an entry-level contract and is 18 or 19 years of age (as of September 15 of the signing year), does not play in a minimum of 10 NHL games (including both regular season and playoffs; AHL games do not count), their contract is considered to ‘slide’, or extend, by one year. For example, if a player signed an ELC for three seasons from 2015-16 to 2017-2018, and their contract slides, their contract is now effective from 2016-17 to 2018-19. An exception to this rule is that if the player is 19 on September 15 of the first year of their contract, and turns 20 between September 16 and December 31, their contract does not slide.

Second Slide: If an 18-year-old player (at the time of contract signing) has his contract slide and then doesn’t play in at least ten games in the second season either, his contract will slide again.

According to CapFriendly, Will signed when he was 21 (after his junior year at St Cloud), so his contract doesn't slide.  He's already on his third year of his ELC, and it will expire at the end of this season, resulting in him becoming an RFA.  Therefore everything I said was wrong, and they should play the hell out of him if possible to evaluate his next contract.

My mother.  I could never tell her that I loved her.  (This is what lets Kirk know that Spock is affected by that thing that Lt. Tormolen brought back from the surface.)

It sounds like a scaphoid fracture, Which wouldn’t necessarily appear on the initial x-rays usually requires repeat imaging about 48 to 72 hours later

Either that or a non displaced radial fx but surgery? Guess a screw in scaphoid makes sense... But that would be characterized as a wrist fx... not forearm... could be a green stick fx.  Must not have done an ulnar deviation view initially

Don't be so literal.

PS: Healthy at F doesn't seem to be doing us any good.

The sentiment that the Sabres needs to write off the season is rampant on twitter and it's grinding my gears, my apologies.

I understand the sentiment.  The D and G haven't been the problem.  The problem is that our top 4 highest paid forwards have 3 goals total.  There is a huge problem when depth players Lazar and Reider have more goals then Staal, Hall, Eichel, Skinner, and Okposo combined with Staal the leader of the dubious stars with 3 goals.
