We just can't win

First of all, the news of the day, but Iíve confirmed through different avenues that left wing Andrew Brunette is playing on at least a partially torn right ACL and maybe a fully torn ACL.

Neither Brunette, nor GM Doug Risebrough, would confirm the exact injury, but both confirmed that Brunette has a major decision to make after the season regarding surgery. You can read the story in Mondayís paper or on the Star Tribune Wild page in a few minutes.Brunette said heíll ďprobablyĒ have it, especially if itís going to be like this again next season.

You would not believe the things Iím seeing daily from the gutsy Brunette. It is taking a lot to get him to play. When he gets off the buses or moves through the hotels, he can barely walk. Itís taking lots and lots of treatment to get him on the ice, and yet heís still producing and playing well.

If the Wild goes belly-up here, you just have to wonder if heís going to shut it down.

And letís be honest: The Wildís season is slowly dying.
Russo also reported that Gaborik is far from returning

ACLs are bad. But its not as bad as some make it sound.

I played football with a torn ACL. I had to wear a brace and it hurt really bad. But once you get it snug in a uniform with pads and tape it up. You can play.

Still i remember what it hurt like when i played on saturdays. I cannot imagine the pain going through it on an alomst nightly basis and Brunno pivots way more than football player ever would. And its the NHL.
