30 Days Out: Healthy Mike, Healthy Brooks, Healthy Nicky

mike green

The first puck of the 2013-14 season will drop in exactly 30 days, so we’re going to spend the whole month reminding ourselves of all the good things coming our way on October 1st. I thought I’d start with this little gem: Everybody’s healthy. For once.

Over the last two seasons, Mike Green, Brooks Laich, and Nick Backstrom have combined to play just 63.5% of games. Concussions and #brittlegroin have cost those players a combined 142 man-games, probably a big factor in the Caps’ struggles since 2011. After successful rehab for all three, we’ve got reason to think those troubles are behind us now.

    Now it is good time immediately to spit, turn around and knock in the wood RMNB, b/c you decided to spoil everything! From now on what ‘s left is wait and see who would be the first who will go down, probably with groin injury!?
