How exactly does a fractured arm prevent a player from maintaining on-ice conditioning?

He can still skate, can't he? At the end of the day it's not a lower body injury at all. The only thing he likely can't do is grab a stick.

With his arm in cast & sling, he should still be able to skate. Perhaps not 100%, but I'm not sure why he's not been on the ice since his injury..

Better safe than sorry
I thought we went through this already.

Although, it logically appears you can skate with a broken arm, in reality the skating isn't without risk so when you fall you try and protect yourself with ... your healing arm which you then re-break and start the cycle all over again.


The New York Rangers are the most valuable NHL franchise at $1.2 billion, taking the top spot on the Forbes list for the first time since 2004.

The magazine said Tuesday that Montreal is second at $1.18 billion, followed by Toronto at $1.15 billion.
