    Sure hope Habs eye is ok… same for Joe as he was doing so well.

    Wow, was hoping Snipely wouldn’t be out for too long. Here’s hoping for a speedy recovery for both players. Scary stuff about Hags, I guess it was a detached retina or something? Let’s hope he doesn’t have any lingering vision problems once he heals up
