Ryan Suter's injury slipped through my fingers yesterday.  Further proof is that he's in my lineup for this week.  Damn.   He suffered the UBI Saturday night and will miss tonight's game.  The Preds (and me) are hopeful he'll be back on Thursday.

Matt Duchene practiced yesterday and should be good to go tonight.  This information would have been much more useful for weekly leagues if it was a day earlier.

It's official.  Mikko Koivu has a broken finger and will be out three weeks.  Sounds like he won't be having surgery but that's not 100% yet.

Paul Martin missed the game last night is day-to-day after being shaken up on a hit on Sunday.

Jordan Staal was well enough to play last night after getting hit in the face with a slapshot on the weekend.  Start 'im if you got 'im.

Chris Kunitz and Mike Green practiced with their respective teams yesterday and should return sometime this week.

Jamie Benn should also be returning this week... even as early as tonight.  Perfect timing too as he could fit James Neal's spot on the top line.  I think Benn should be a big winner of yesterday's trade.

Joni Pitkanen practiced yesterday and might play tonight.  He's no guarentee for the game but even if he doesn't play it sound like he'll be good to go later in the week.  Reserve him for tonight.

Just a heads up... we were expecting to see the return of Martin Brodeur tonight but the Devils are going to ride the hot hand that is Johan Hedberg...  for at least another game.  Marty's not injured anymore, just unlucky.
