Yeah, I mentioned it earlier, I had a high ankle in one of my last year's of competitive hockey. After 6 weeks I returned but I was gimpy as heck - had no business being on the ice. It was MONTHS before I really felt better.

But, of course, there are varying degrees of sprains and I think it waaaaay too extreme to think he'll never be the same. But I agree we should be careful to assume he'll be 100% this season. Glad we have sick depth.
