Comrie Injury

Appologies if this has already been discussed, but I have not seen any updates on MC in a while (either on this board or the local media). So the question is, just what is going on with his situation? Any updates or expected timelines? I think he could definetely be a big help if he can get back in at 100%...

He's sick with mononucleosis ('mono'). I doubt there's a timetable for his return. Some people recover from it within a couple of months, others it can take a year or longer.

But I'm no doctor. I just play one from time to time on message boards.

There's no timetable yet for his return.

From what I've heard, he feels lousy and has no gas in the tank right now. If we're lucky, he'll be back before the Olympics.

With it being mono, we'll be lucky to see him before the olympics. He may be healthy by January, but he'll likely have lost 30 pounds and with his size that would make him pretty vulnerable to further injuries.

There's two questions with Comrie. First, when will he be able to return. Second, who will sit in the press box when he does...

For mono, the concern is the possibility of rupturing your spleen by participating in contact sports. People with mono can get an enlarged spleen. As well, there's the symptom of fatigue associated with it.

for more info:

Mike Comrie's return?

Comrie in one of Potulny/Nilsson down? I can't see them sitting Comrie considering if healthy they could probably deal him at the deadline.

He came into my store the other day. I briefly talked to him and he just looked and sounded tired.

I'm no doctor but I don't believe he'll be back anytime soon.

I'm no Mike Comrie, but I would look and sound tired too if I were dating Hilary Duff. A guy can dream, can't he?

Really, he could be back by New Years depending on how tired he feels.

I think I heard somewhere that he has a bad form of mono and could be done for the year

The question has been raised why it took so long for the oiler doctors to diagnos it

Because its symptoms are much like the symptoms of a flu. You need blood work done to diagnose somebody with mononucleosis.

I know he's a slow skater, but he looked rec league slow when he came back from the "flu". Get better. It's not like we're Cup contenders and in truth I want us to sink into a black hole similar to what the Av's experienced last year. 3rd overall will get us one of Kabanov or Fowler. I think Hall or Seguin will go 1/2, imo.

I'd tend to lead with the Russian as I think he's going to be a dynamic and elite player in the NHL and the bottom 2 teams will be scared off by his Russian ancestry. Fowler is intriguing, but we're deep enough on the blueline at the moment and a young elite forward has been what this team's been seeking for the past 20 years.

I have had mono twice in my life and I find it interesting it took the oiler staff so long--

there are some clear differences between mono and the regular flu

There is also no vomiting commonly associated with the flu. If a person starts feeling the serious symptoms of Mononucleosis this should be a easily detectable disease. I see two problems though, at the time the flu was running rampant Comrie easily could have caught it with an already compromised immune system. Two Mono has no timetable you can be weak and tired for a week, like I was when i had it, or you can be out for 6 months to a year in very bad cases. Really almost nothing about his status will surprise me at this point.

Regardless, I was really starting to get excited about the prospect of exactly what Comrie could bring to the team (I think he showed quite a few doubters early on), but then again that was waay back when we were all thinking this team could really go places...
