Thanks. He's not coming back this season, is he?

My doctor actually encourage me to walk to keep my muscle active before surgery


So, while you were waiting for your surgery, had someone met you on the street and randomly threatened you unless you did a shuttle run right then and there...you would've been SOL!

Possible he won't be back for the start of next season too.

I would not expect him to come back this season.

For most mortals not named Adrian Peterson, ACL is a year until "fully healed". Dupes may be back in the lineup before then, but it's usually at least a year before strength and confidence in the leg return to normal.

-Gibbons doesn't really stand out but he's getting it done. Shame Ott n Scott started gooning Sid as (understandably) Glass was riding shotgun from that point and I'd hoped to see Megna get some time there.
-Megna has played on line 1 through 4 and looked pretty good. I love that versatility and wonder if he could/should be with Sid over Gibbons...
-Engo is a freaking warrior, held his own vs a freak of nature and still looked solid cycling n grinding. Good job.
-MAF is looking like the goalie we all know he can be, Bales and the sports psyche should be proud.
-HZ is another guy who contributes when called up but as said earlier there aren't enough spots available when healthy.
-Poor Miller, a trade couldn't come soon enough. Not sure Ott or any other rentals available will be worth the asking price, esp after last years failures.

Not much for me to say that wasn't already said. Except I like Harry "Zoom Zoom". These plucky AHL call-up guys remind me of the Talbot/Kennedy days. Just enough talent to come up big when need be.

My dislike for Ott increased during this game. Sure, he shouldn't have had to fight for his hit on Harry Z, but to have Scott fight his battles for him is weaksauce.

Ott is pile of steaming bung. However, If your carrying Scott on your team, he should be fighting and its evident why, the guy is a monster. Now, having said that, Scott made a few decent plays for Buffalo last night, including one where he anticipated a pass in the Pens zone, stepped up and grabbed it and got a shot on MAF. That shot was weaksauce.

Hey guys, intermittent lurker here, just wanted to weigh in real quick on Dupuis/ACL convo. Quick background, Im currently an orthopedic resident physician; after finishing residency I plan on being a sports medicine specialist so Im very well versed in ACL injuries, and have assisted/performed numerous ACL reconstructions. Plain as day, Dupuis seaons is done, no question. It is highly recommended to continue to undergo activity and pre-op physical therapy before ACL surgery to prevent post-op complications, namely arthrofibrosis (joint stiffness) and graft failure, hence his jogging. Many people live with chronic ACL injuries and do not have surgery, it really is an elective procedure; however without an ACL your knee undergoes severe and rapid arthritic degeneration. As far as recovery, even in the face of a perfectly performed surgery coupled with intense, dedicated rehab only the most elite athlete can hope to return to play at 6 months. Peterson was an absolute freak during rehab, hence his incredible recovery. Even with that, best prognosis is 6 months out. Does Dupuis have a great shot to be ready opening night October '14? Absolutely. But theres no chance he will return this year. Sorry to jack the thread here; any other musculoskeletal medical questions I'd be glad to answer

I got a pain, right about here, whenever I reach for things. What do you think that could be?
