It's official. Angry Michigan Safety Hating God has bred. And his spawn, Angry Michigan Defenseman Hating God, is pissed the f--- off.
-The week before the season, Brandon Burlon twists his ankle. He missed last weekend's games and will likely miss another 1-2 weeks.
-Tristin Llewellyn was suffering from concussion-like symptoms and missed the opener.
-In the opener, Mark Mitera injured his knee and will miss somewhere between most and all of the season.
-Now there's one soul less on His fiery list. Steven Kampfer, who was only +6 this weekend, was hospitalized after an off-ice incident Saturday night. Red can't talk about it yet, since it happened off-ice, but apparently Kampfer will be out for quite some time. He probably stepped on an acorn while moving a fridge... (Edit: MHNet made roughly that same joke, four minutes sooner)
Good thing we brought in Greg Pateryn this year. The Anaheim Ducks must be thrilled with the way their defense prospects are faring this year in Ann Arbor.
