Worst fears about Willie Mitchell realized, but not how we thought they might

Word on the street is that one of summer's hottest free agents, Willie Mitchell, will be sidelined for 4-6 weeks due to a wrist injury.  Many will recall how we were hesitant about signing Mitchell due to the likelihood of him suffering setbacks in his concussion recovery.  In the end, old DW was not willing to roll the dice on pretty Willie and it looks like in the short term it was a good/lucky decision as Mitchell will miss significant time not including time to get reacquainted with game-time skating.

I wish him a speedy recovery although I must admit, shamefully, that it made me happy that we didn't sign him. Which makes zero sense I know, but somehow makes an ironic kind of sense considering it was injuries we were worried about, just not this kind of injury. And while we still need a new shutdown defenseman, looks like perhaps this one didn't turn out for us for the better.
