Sourgeray

Last night Pat Quinn told the media that Sheldon Souray will be having surgery to repair three fractures in the hand that he injured on Saturday night in a fight against Jarome Iginla.  Sweet revenge, Sheldon, sweet revenge. 

Quinn suggested that Souray will be out "indefinitely" which doesn't sound good, though he did say that he wouldn't rule out a return this season.  The "out indefinitely" lanuage is also being used by TSN, though yesterday they had his recovery time set at about six weeks (the "Ice Chips" feature changes every day).  SBNation's own Brandon Worley also suggested that Souray will be out four to six weeks.  This timeline is similar to that of Teemu Selanne's who recovered from a similar injury earlier this year

So what are the chances of Souray getting traded?  Less than they were before the injury but they're certainly not zero either.  There's no reason to believe he wouldn't be ready for the playoffs and likely by mid-March.  That said, there shouldn't be any hurry to move Souray by this year's trade deadline.  He hasn't had a particularly good season statistically (4-9-13 in 37 GP with a -19 and no PP goals) and injured players don't often go for full value.  If there isn't a good offer on the table, there's no harm in waiting until the summer to see if the market improves or even to next year's trade deadline.
