Repairing Watersoaked Laminate Floor?

Someone left a 1 sq/ft puddle of standing water on our living room laminate floor - a quicklock type. The edges of a few of the boards have absorbed a bit of water it looks like and are swollen enough to make it noticeable.

(Never mind - found that I'm out of luck and will have to replace boards. Nuts.)

I was going to say, "watersoaked laminate" and "repair" should not be used in the same sentence. Good luck with the replacement, however.

My icemaker overflowed all over my kitchen floor just after I installed laminate. It buckled and looked horrible and I thought for sure I would have to replace it again. I was too busy at the time though, so just left it alone and it gradually started going back down. After about six months I couldn't even tell it had happened.
