Eric Staal - MCL sprain, 3 months recovery, no surgery required
in the game vs. Sweden today - couldn't walk off the ice on his own - by his reaction on the ice it looks bad

Broken knee, ligament tear maybe? Looked very bad. He might be out for a long time.

Lucky Lindy 05-16-2013 01:41 PM

This is just brilliant...

Came to post this. Looked very, very bad. He was pretty much screaming on the ice.

Knee-on-knee from Edler. He was helped off the ice by O'Reilly & Grioux, could not put any weight on his (right) leg.

The way it looked it could be anything, from ligament to a broken knee cap.

Edler was kicked out of the game and Canada was given a 5 minute PP due to the play.

Wow, you guys are fast.

Looks brutal. Hope hes back by Christmas. Trade everyone and hope for the first pick next year. Definitely not getting season tix next year now.

Cue Semin playing lazy again.

It's a torn ACL, most likely. Depressing to say the least.

Obi Wan LaRosie 05-16-2013 01:46 PM

Knee ligament(s) I could make a fairly educated guess at. Hopefully its not all of them and only one.

Fuzzy Bunny 05-16-2013 01:47 PM

Jordan Staal played as pissed off as you'd expect on his next shift.

ShattStar03 05-16-2013 01:47 PM

Anyone got a replay of the incident?

Gr8Dan 05-16-2013 01:50 PM

See you in 6 months Staal... Dammit

Just watched replay of Staal injury. Gut-wrenching. Not a doctor but did not look good.

DaveG 05-16-2013 01:52 PM

**** this ****ing tournament. Seriously

Joe McGrath 05-16-2013 01:53 PM

Well that should pretty much end any Hurricane participation in that tournement for the rest of time.

Lucky Lindy 05-16-2013 01:54 PM

Are we leaving WO next year and get a top-2 pick?

Jack Bourdain 05-16-2013 01:55 PM

He might not be in full flight for the Olympics either, which sucks for Canada.

Novacane 05-16-2013 01:57 PM

**** these tournaments.

Lucbourdon 05-16-2013 01:58 PM

Really sucks for Staal, Edler was skating in, and Caught his knee, dumb stupid play by edler, Certainly does not look good.

Which sucks for the Staals cause they pretty much used this tournament to get a head start in canadian team selection with yzerman watching. He didn't go to this tourney the past 3-4 years
