When you see the replay of him taking the wrist shot after the penalty my wife says to me that's exactly what happened to you.

From my experience he will eventually tear it completely and have to get it reconstructed.
No offense, but your experience has no impact on the prognosis of Taylor Hall. As knee injuries are relatively common I know people want to relate to this situation; however, we should trust the diagnosis and treatment of an orthopedic specialist who has examined this particular injury over that of personal anecdotes. There always is a chance that the specialist could be wrong, but they are significantly more likely to be correct.

Well played.
