Manny begin Manny? Pick His Issue And Win!

190 The Bruins called up South Boston native and UNH alum, Kevin Regan to back up Tim Thomas, while Manny Fernandez tends to his "issue". According to Claude Julien it's minor and should be taken care of soon.

Although, Kevin Paul Dupont of The Boston Globe did write this gem to throw B's fans into a tizzy:

"Interestingly, Fernandez' nameplate had been removed, while other injured players–Andrew Ference, Milan Lucic and Marco Sturm (knee sugergy tomorrow)–all had their nameplates in place. However, they didn't have callups crowding their locker area."

So send me your ideas of what you think the "issue" is and the best one/closest one wins a shirt of their choosing from Hub Hockey Brand.

Shane Hnidy should be all set for Tuesday's game against the Habs, George Laraque will have to find another sparing partner since it's looking like Milan Lucic will miss this game too and Patrice Bergeron has been hitting the ice.

    i would have to say it is most likely a trade brewing as much as i hate to see them break up the tandem might as well do it early rather than at the deadline where it could prove devestating to the team…i think storming off the ice and ignoring his teammates was probably the last straw for manny in boston…yet another manny being traded from boston this year…good riddance

    I sound like a broken record today but, Manny for Bouwmeester straight up.
    I said after the Sens game over on HubHockey that Manny storming off after a late goal that it was going to ruffle feathers and I think it did. I said saturday that the claude prolly benched him for that type of selfish display. I think that indeed is what happened and now Manny is pushing trade…
    We will see in the end.

    That display where he was angry over the goal allowed, he slammed his stick and tweaked his wrist. He is unable to get full motion in his wrist (don’t know if it’s the catcher or the blocker).

    I believe there is a trade about to commence, and Manny is pouting by removing his nameplate and not skating anymore. Guarentee a trade takes place eventually.
