Stastny apparently okay; Moulson not

When #isles -nation heard about Paul Stastny being injured in last night's #Avs game, thoughts were that this could open an Olympic spot for someone such as red-hot Kyle Okposo.

However, this afternoon's word from Denver (Adrian Dater of the Denver Post) is:
"The good news on Paul Stastny is he's only day-to-day with an ankle injury suffered Thursday night. He hurt an ankle in a collision with other players and didn't practice Friday.
But he should be on skates again soon and his Olympic participation status is still good to go."

In other news - former Islander Matt Moulson is expected to be out until after the Olympic break after suffering an "upper body injury" that resulted from either "a slash or cross-check to his arm" in Buffalo's win in Phoenix last night.  Moulson, like Thomas Vanek, is an unrestricted free agent at the end of the season is rumored to be on the trading block, again.  That deal will likely have to wait.
