That being said - Hall had to fly into EDM and probably had to go through the public system to get that MRI done - the Colts had Wayne playing at home, and could get an MRI done within hours thanks to paying for it.

That's just speculation though - I have no idea how quickly athletes get ushered in for imaging in Canada.
Oilers go to a private clinic for MRIs is my understanding from a little bit of hearsay
