CuJo has surgery

According to the Toronto Sun, Curtis Joseph underwent surgery yesterday in a Clevland hospital to repair an injured ankle. The expected recovery time is four or five months, meaning he'll be back in January at the earliest and making it just about impossible to trade him anywhere for anything. There aren't many details yet, it isn't known which ankle it is and how he got it. I'm not even sure what kind of injury it is. I'm guessing it's a broken ankle but it could be something else. This truly is terrible news for Ken Holland. I feel really sorry for that guy. His job gets harder every day. Now the Wings pretty much have to pay two goalie $8 million goalies for at least a few months. It was hard enough to trade Joseph before he had this happen. The Wings still need a center but it looks like they won't get one. They can't really spend the money on a free agent any more and they can't make a trade. Thanks, Joseph.
