I'm not sure this means anything more than the Texas Stars might need Wathier this weekend.
While Jere Lehtinen (intercostal muscle) and Mike Modano (ribs) skated today and will skate tomorrow, I don't think either will be ready to play on Friday. Instead, my guess is Mark Fistric moves up to forward and Jeff Woywitka plays on defense.
Then, Steve Ott comes back in on Saturday, and all is well with the world.
Modano or Lehtinen might play on Saturday, but both could just as easily miss that game and come back next Wednesday against Calgary.
I guess we'll sort it all out at the morning skate.
By the way, practice on Monday is at 10 a.m. at the Dr Pepper StarCenter in McKinney. It is open to the public.
