Video: More on Karlsson from NHL Network, Sens GM Murray

By Mike Harrington

Click above for the NHL Network's take on the Erik Karlsson injury. Here's a solid column by good friend of the blog Pierre LeBrun on, who points out that as much of a loss Karlsson is to the Senators, it's a bigger loss to the league as a whole

Ottawa GM Bryan Murray held a press conference today, confirming Karlsson has had surgery for a 70 percent cut of his Achilles and will be out 3-4 months.

"His year is finished at this time," said Murray, who explained this is an injury that could have taken up to a year of recovery time if it was more severe.

Murray was outraged by the play last night and was disappointed today there was no suspension of Cooke by NHL discipline czar Brendan Shanahan.

"They suggest it was a hockey play gone bad," Murray said. "I suggested that Matt Cooke has somewhat of a history and that maybe that should be considered as well but I don't believe that's the approach they took."
