Rick Stanley had his season of discontent puts Carlyle on shelf and jets in deep trouble by Grant Mcginnis Winnipeg free press Toronto Randy carlyles season is almost certainly the Winnipeg jets defence Man returned Home last night for further diagnosis on his injured right but Early indications Are that Carlyle is finished for the he suffered torn ligaments thursday night in i think it could easily stretch into the said jets assistant coach Clare saying four weeks was the initial the doctor has to have a closer look at usually you judge that kind of injury by the amount of movement at the time and Jim Trainer Jim Ramsey said it could be four word last night from Winnipeg doctors was that the injury May not be As serious As first doctors said they wont have a precise diagnosis until the swelling goes probably Carlyle injured the knee Midway through the first period of thursdays 33 draw with the Bruins at the Boston jostling along the end boards with Bostons John Carlyle planted his right foot and the knee gave its the first time Ive Ever Felt a tear in my said Wholl turn 34 next there is something definitely i dont know if its going to be something that lasts eight weeks or two Well have to wait and Winnipeg finished the game with four already missing Dave who is at Home resting a sore the jets lost Fredrik Olausson in overtime after he took a Knock in the he skipped practice yesterday but will play tonight at Maple Leaf Bryan Marchment arrived from Moncton in time for yesterdays practice and will play tonight and in Buffalo he could be up a lot longer than said Winnipeg coach Bob and that could be a serious blow during the jets run toward the without Ellett and car a significant portion of Winnipeg offence Stem Ming from defence perhaps 25 per cent is its particularly going to be Dicy for us i think Over the next Little while on said the plan was to just kind of rest Dave he could have played on this trip but his Back has been bothering him so we thought it would be a Good time to rest i guess he is As Long As Ellets the strategy must so much of Winnipeg flown do style comes from Ellett and Carlyle behind the now it will be up to Olausson and Teppo Numminen to do although Treyve been the jets Best defence men since the Allstar the line outside Ramsey training room has been relatively Short All the team Only lost 101 games because of injury and personal by has lost 373 Man the still without Greg Paslawski sprained close the season with a taxing schedule of games and have to maintain momentum if beating Edmonton in the opening round of the smythe division playoffs is to remain a realistic it is Only appropriate that carlyles season could end this Given the kind of year its he suffered a knee injury Early in the then lost both his parents just before it has not been a season of note for Carlyle prep Star runs hot and cold Bob Heighton is getting tired of the in still not sure where in going to said the hottest Prospect in High
