Bennett is a given. Bummed about Maatta though. Wonder how much work was too much work. Being 19, playing a full season, Olympics, and two rounds of playoffs is probably asking a lot.

Oh, sure. I wasn't implying he was handled neglegently. But when you play that much at a new level of competition the chance of an injury of any kind increases. I doubt either him or the team have any regrets.

It was that car commercial. Holding the stick up snapped his wrist.

Bennett was supposed to get this surgery earlier, but put it off. Everyone can look at the negative, but the real positive here is that if that's how he looked not being 100%, I'm excited to see what he can do 100% healthy.

He's not Beau Brittle...he's had bad luck with one specific injury.

Had it done at the Cleveland clinic also. UPMC has one of the best hand and wrist surgeons in the nation, so the guy at Cleveland Clinic must be a wizard. In my experience, Cleveland Clinic is where you go for the best of the best. Hopefully this Doc got it figured out for Bennett. Had to be a difficult procedure. A friend of mine just broke their wrist/lower arm and had a titanium plate and 7 pins installed. Their arm looked like a jigsaw puzzle that this guy had to put back together, pieces broke off, rotated on every axis and shifted around. Nasty stuff, but this guy was awesome, the after X-Ray looked like it wasn't broke except for the hairlines around where the bones should go back together, everything lines back up perfectly, except for the Wolverine looking plate and pins... I told them to ask the Doc to spring load those suckers. On a serious note, the Doc is an artist. But my friend won't be fully healed for at least 6 months, so I hope Bennett didn't get the Wolverine special also.

Didn't Bennet say it wasn't ever broken? hand or wrist. i thought he made that clear when everyone told him to drink more milk after the season ended he tweeted "For the record, I've never broken my wrist....... Or hand...... And i don't like milk". could he have had tendon or ligament damage and they tried rehab before but when he damaged it again he had to get it fixed for real? Not sure thats better than breaking it though.

Do we have any idea when that might actually come to fruition? His track record isn't very good.

At least they didn't lose much at all in Bennett. Maata hurts a helluva lot more.

Yea because this team is swimming in top 12 wingers and are bereft of defensive depth.
