That's 6 weeks before you can even begin therapy to prepare you to start to skate again. So lets say, 7-8 weeks from now, he starts skating, that's June, or at best Memorial Day weekend.
He'll be nowhere near game-shape. You can't do much cardio on one leg.
Torts said it: He's done.
It's terrible luck for a guy who really gives his heart and soul for this team every night.
disappointed? Cally must be devastated.
Team has got to push on without him as best they can. Secure the playoff spot and keep trying to win games.
This is a real test.
I think the team can overcome if some guys step up and play the way that they are capable of playing. If Gaborik, Wolski and/or Dubi can find their prime forms again this team can be very dangerous.
