Realistically, somebody needs to stick a fork in him, because he's done. I don't think the Wild had him out on the ice for a single defensive faceoff in his two months here, and he is a DEFENSEMAN. He had the most sheltered minutes on one of the worst teams in the league. The only reason he was playing at all was because the Wild desparately needed warm bodies.
apparently he spent all summer with a physiotherapist which he claims greatly helped his leg. he claims it has changed the way he plays the game as well as how he is living his day-to-day life. he also claims that his leg is just as good if not better then before his injury. i guess we won't know for sure until we see him in action if it truly made a difference. either way i don't think he'll be playing for more then a couple weeks (until some of are guys get back) assuming no more injuries. plus he'll most likely be playing few ES minutes and just serve as a pp specialist.
