    Default Michalek and Asham Out For Pens

    Pens' Michalek, Asham out with injuries; Crosby fine

    Penguins defenseman Zbynek Michalek will miss two to four weeks with an upper body injury, head coach Dan Bylsma said today.

    It is believed the injury is to Michalek's right shoulder. He left in the second period against New Jersey Monday and has not played since.

    Also, Bylsma said that right wing Arron Asham will be out of the lineup for another two weeks with what is believed to be a shoulder injury.

    Brooks Orpik, dealing with a groin injury, is considered day-to-day.

    Penguins star Sidney Crosby was given the day off from practice but met with reporters at Southpointe and indicated that he is fine and will play Friday against the Islanders.

    There's got to be a hex doll laying around with Pittsburgh Penguins "Defense" written on it. How many years in a row is this now that we've lost a top Defensive guy for a few weeks? We lost our entire Defense last November for some time, we only had Gonchar in 2008-09 for 25 Regular Season games ..

    Now Michalek is out... We can never seem to catch a break. We never lose guys for extended period of time that are really easy to replace like Craig Adams or the 6th Defenseman

    Its because those guys aren't on the ice enough to get injured, and the expensive ones are on the ice all the time

    Yeah but freak injuries can happen at any point... I mean, they happened to Kennedy and Talbot last year who are both lower liners I guess

    True... We have a little over $12 million out of the lineup right now with injuries ...

    Orpik - $3.7
    Michalek - $4
    Staal - $4
    Asham- $700K

    That's almost 1/5th of our payroll
