Lubomir Visnovsky sprained his ankle in the game on December 31st against the Calgary Flames. Pat Quinn showed his confidence in the Oilers' ability to give a solid estimate on the amount of time a player will be out with this gem: "They're saying seven to ten (days) for now, but that's the first diagnosis." How long until Pouliot's ready again? I know, I know... it's an ankle sprain and no one can really know how long that's going to take to heal properly. Given the estimate, it sounds like Visnovsky will be targeting the game against Nashville on the 12th as a possible return date. I just hope he doesn't rush back and risk re-injuring the ankle before the Olympics. After all, that'll be the next time Lubo plays a game where a win will be universally cheered by those "cheering" for his team. Oh, and here's Lubo after his trade to the Oilers mere days before his no-trade clause kicked in: "For a family it's a better life in L.A but for hockey it's a much better life in Edmonton." So... how's that turning out? Visnovsky must hate Dean Lombardi something fierce.
