Since the beginning they have said it is his knee messing around and I would guess they have found some **** with his ACL as well. The timeline for recovery would reflect that of an ACL injury if he would undergo surgery now. As DL said they will know later this week. An ACL surgery at the age of 36 doesn't give me any hopes of seeing him on the NHL ice again.

DL mentioned that there were debris in his knee and some some cartilage removed (LA times). It is known fact that if you have those kind of symptoms it is very commonly related to an ACL injury, new or old doesn't matter same result with the exception, an older gives you alot more damage from "being worn out" and less "material" left.

We will see if my assumptions are correct.
