Even if its not broken, having ONE eye to see out of renders him unable to play. Bickel playing would be a disaster, kids in Hartford aren't ready. Hamrlik fills the void.
Hockey players are very different than average human beings. Not a clue how long Staal will be out, but comparing him to your friend doesn't really mean anything.

Players get there teeth knocked out and play the same game. I had my face shattered by a baseball and missed my entire season and it took weeks for me to recover in any sort of normal manner.

These guys are machines.
