Paul Ranger likely to be shut down

http://blogs.tampabay.com/lightning/...ranger-to.html

Quote:
Rick Tocchet said after Thursday's morning skate that defenseman Paul Ranger, who has missed four straight games with a mysterious upper-body injury, likely will be shut down for the rest of the season. He gave no specifics about the injury, but indicated Ranger will need surgery to correct the problem.

From what I'm hearing... he may not be the only one.

This is a quote from Tampabaylightning.com:

"Myself and Mezzy both decided that by us shutting it down for the rest of the season, the better the chances of one of us being able to play along side Victor Hedman next year." defenseman Paul Ranger said with a smirk on his face.

If this was the case they should have been in surgery a week or two ago. They need to be finishing strength training BEFORE camp. Not after the next season (see: Vinny).

Well if anyone had any shed of hope that we would still somehow be able to sneak into the playoffs, its certainly gone now with our best two defenseman out of the lineup for the rest of the season.

We get to see more of Wishart, or Smaby, or maybe Quick or Mihalik on the bright side...for a bunch of games that don't really matter.

Talk about awful news. Why not just start Ramo and Helenius every game to see who's farther along?

They should shut Smith down. You do not mess with concussions.

Helenius is clearly not ready IMO. McKenna has played well in brief action...we're discovering we've had two pretty decent goalies playing in the "A" all this time, just one of them wasn't under contract till recently.
