The optimism in me was hoping we'd have Hossa back later in this series, but to no avail. Just hope he can return to 100% again. My guess for Torres' punishment is 17 games and $2,500 fine.
Here's what I know:
"Severe" whiplash (soft tissue injury), out 5-6 weeks. Also a concussion.
Was so swollen and in so much pain the other night, a complete diagnosis could not be made but they felt fairly confident he will be OK for summer training and next year.
He is being re-evaluated today so the results can be sent for Torres' hearing.
Torres, BTW, is f---ed.
