The last update on Blackburn's condition included the fact that he won't be re-evaluated until mid/late December. My calender says it's still early December. There is NOTHING to update.
As for the prognosis from Sather: that's really too bad. I hope he's wrong, but everything I've seen suggests that Blackburn won't be able to play at the level needed to come back and be effective. That's now two very promising young players who've been lost to the Rangers because of very unusual injuries. At least Blackburn hasn't suffered the physical pain that Cherneski went through to try and play again. It's not much though.
