Detroit d-man Brad Stuart just suffered a similar injury a little over a week ago. When it was announced, they said he would be out 6-8 weeks. Its NOT reading too much into it and in this case, several weeks means more than 1 month.

If you want more examples, a couple yrs ago Pascal Leclaire had a broken jaw and he was out 5 weeks. Nick Leddy last season while playing for Univ. of Minnesota was expected to miss 6 weeks (but I think it was 5 weeks also). Jack Hillen of the Isles also missed about 5 weeks last season from a broken jaw. I think its a fair thing to say that McCabe is probably going to be out at least 5 weeks based on past examples and that leaves just 1 week before the trade deadline.
