So who steps into his place on the opening night roster if he's not ready to go?

@ByMHarrington
Housley says Rodrigues has a hand injury. Status TBA. McCabe upper body week to week. Optimistic for opener. #Sabres

Week-to-week, yet optimistic for the opener in 10 days?

Saying they expect him to be out at least 1 week but hopefully not 2 or 3.

Guess that frees up a LHD spot for a little while.

Ya. I mean, it sounds pessimistic, but we are seemingly always near the top of the league in man games lost, and this news does nothing to curb the worry for me that we'll be right there again. Could potentially be without 2/3rds of our left D side to start: Scandella and McCabe. Wings dropping, too. It's training camp and we are already without 4 guys.

At least they'll have the built in "injuries" excuse to work with, again. :/

What wingers are dropping? Are we really losing our ###### over ERod being out for a bit? It's gonna be a long season.

I'm not losing my #####, relax. Rodrigues, and Nylander. It at least seemed that the staff were eager to give Nylander a real chance to make the roster this year. Then add in the D. Bogosian isn't even injured yet.

How many other teams have 4 injured players already, just during training camp activity? We talked about the Leafs injury luck last season, how many injuries do they have so far? Is it truly all luck and coincidence? Likely. But there could be something more to it.

I just don't like the early season trend so far.

Well obviously this team does not have the depth to handle a lot of injuries and if we get them we are toast for sure, but there's nothing big yet, nobody's out for the year or months, just a few minor issues. The only one that worries me right now is Scandella cause he has a history and I have a small worry maybe we got saddled with damaged goods that can't be fully fixed. But that's just a maybe, no reason to worry about injuries just yet.

Hey, I'm a fan. I'm just not one of those fans who doesn't face reality. Show me something to cheer about and I'll be cheering but I've run out of blind optimism.

^Hard to say. I don't think the 'stach in the picture corresponds to when he uttered the famous quote, but I'm not positive. If it was, it wouldn't have been for Movember as he said it after early-season struggles.

Verdict: he pulls off the 'stache.

In the games that have been on television, Falk, Fedun, and Tennyson have clearly outplayed Gorges. Gorges is in a tier with Goloubef and Guhle in terms of what they've shown in those two games. This has been reflected in Gorges' early pairings (though he moved up for today's practice), with guys like the Goloubef character (not sure if I have his name right). I really, really hope that this means that Housley can see that Gorges is done. Gifting him the 7 spot over better players in Falk, Fedun, and Tennyson (in some order) and thus using him in a situation where McCabe is hurt will actively hurt this team whose depth is already stretched thin, for no reason whatsoever. We can't afford to ice a team early on that is worse than it has to be just to make somebody feel better.

Agree completely. And if the best of the bunch is Fedun or Tennyson, play Antipin on the left side until McCabe is back.

Hmmmm.... not so sure.  The article says:
 

Meanwhile, defenseman Jake McCabe (upper body, week-to-week) and center Evan Rodrigues (hand, day-to-day) missed the session.

Housley said McCabe was recently nursing a sore shoulder.

 

"was recently nursing" does not mean that's what his current injury is.  It could be, and maybe it's a direct quote taken out of a longer statement, but it also sounds like it could be evasive wording:  Was recently nursing a sore shoulder, but the was still playing until he got his bell rung (or something to that effect).

I think the implication is 99% accurate here
