I hope this hasn't been discussed elsewhere, but noticed in the rag today that Ortmeyer appears [although not confirmed] to be having "blood clot issues" again in the rehab of his ACL reconstructed knee over the summer.
He has had blood clot issues before, so has a predisposition to them.
If found to have a blood clot, he will need to be on blood thinners for usually 3-6 months, and can't play contact sports during that time.
This would most assuredly open up a opening day roster spot for Pihlstrom, in my opinion.

Boy....Ortmeyer has been a weak 2 yr pick up, and Bonk too, for that matter.

Hope all goes well for him. That being said he is the worst hockey player on this team. I seem to recall ranger fans loving this guy. Not really sure why that was the case. I still think Bonk can be useful and turn it around. Ortmeyer on the other hand was just a terrible signing.
