Sportsnet says Hudson likely won't play this week and neither will Lumsden likely. As Taaffe tells them "The only problem when Jesse can’t play is it alters the ratio".
This leaves us with Hage, Rempel, Dyakowski, Thomas and Cavka starting, and just Woodard as a back-up. Pretty risky to go without a Canadian back-up isn't it? Does this mean Lumsden will have to dress and be used in the event we have to take a non-import OL out and put an import in?
The only other OL on the roster are non-imports Gagne-Marcoux (injured) and Bekasiak (injured and newly converted from DL to OL), and import Gerald Davis (practice roster).
I thought Rempel looked OK last game, but he is unproven really.
We could be in trouble...although it would be hard for our OL to be worse than Winnipeg's!
