Homer feeling better

Tomas Holmstrom had an ultrasound and an MRI on his lower abdominals, this morning. The ultrasound results are back and showed nothing wrong. The MRI results will be back later today.
Encouragingly, Holmstrom said that after feeling sharp pain Saturday, he felt better on Sunday and better still today.
"It feels better and better every day," said Holmstrom. "Saturday was so bad. There was no way I could practice. I was worried."
Holmstrom said that he hopes to be able to practice with the Red Wings, tomorrow.

In other Wings news, Monday ...
-- Rookie defenseman Jonathan Ericsson was assigned to Grand Rapids after a seven-game stay in the NHL. Ericsson was moved so that he'd get ice time. With Brian Rafalski and Nicklas Lidstrom back, there was no spot for him in the lineup. Coach Mike Babcock said that he considers Ericsson an NHL player right now, one that he would put in the lineup without hesitation.
-- Chris Chelios (chipped fibula) said that he's ready to play Tuesday, in fact he was ready to play Sunday. Babcock said that he still needs to talk to the training staff to see if Chelios has the green light.
"I was ready yesterday, so I don't know what's going on," said Chelios. "I'm ready."

Oh god please let this be Chelios last year with the Wings. I would like to see the younger, faster guys that we have play D. Chelios is just taking up a roster spot these days.
