Jeeesus. This sucks.

In other words;
Back for the Stanley Cup Final, game 7, with a GWG

Btw, wonder if the Rangers are happy with Zuke commenting his injury to the norwegian media...

I'd like to stress that the minimum 8 weeks is the Norwegian doctors opinion based on hockey being a contact sport...

Yes. All he did was to that he was operated and that they put in some plates. Can't be a big problem for the Rangers?

6-8 weeks means from the end of april, till the middle of May, so around the end of the second or third round is plausible.

What the newspaper writes is: it COULD be a break in both bones in the arm, and it COULD be 6 to 8 weeks. This information is coming from a doctor that does not know, have not examined, and have no knowlegde to the injury whatsoever, other than a text which the newspaper said they got from MZA. According to the newspaper the text said "I had surgury yesterday, put in some plates". In other words speculation from the doctor and the newspaper.

Also, the newspaper and doctor are talking about a break in the arm and not the wrist.

It will take 6-8 weeks becasue they have to send away for some tiny instruments to operate on him.

You are not a doctor, obviously. Neither am I, only I had similar surgery done twice. Second time the plate was replaced using same holes drilled originally, but surgeon used larger screws. For me it was my left forearm, but it called broken wrist. It is true, when one bone is intact, no open surgery needed. I am not anywhere near pro, but for me it took a year to get my slap shot back.

Still does not change the fact that the newspaper article and comments from the doctor is nothing more than spectulation.

Also, when it comes to recovery time, the fitter you are the less recovery time. Usually

True, I just do not get why would you discount it? If you are looking for proven facts read official releases from NYR. Good luck to find anything useful there.

I dont understand why you are arguing the fact that this doctor has no basis to make a statement about his injury. He has not seen the arm, nor the records, and is basing his diagnosis on a text message.

What i am saying is that i am not going make any judgement based on this doctors opinions of an injury he knows nothing about.

The doctor was talking about the injury. So did I. Neither him or me have to examine Zucarello to conclude that he is done for the season and Conference playoffs. Sure, injuries have some specific with respect to person incurring such, but the time of recovery is known in general. Besides, all x-rays of broken forearm are similar. If you argue that doctor is wrong, than what else cound be fractured that required surgery? Hand? That, god forbid, much worse and could only be longer.

He is most likely gone for the year. Sounds like it as least. If not - we will go far in POs - which is all good! Too bad for the little guy - thought he did good after recall. I really miss him and his creative passing on the PP (yestraday was abyssmal again). Something tells me he will be wearing True Blue next year again on a one way deal for around a million.
Not much of a gamble for the Rangers organisation - if he gets waived (unlikely) he is likely a goner (meaning that then we will have a very good team assembled). If not (for a lower cap hit than this year - that is important to remember) he should be able to contribute something valuable.
He might also be resigned and then used as a tradechip (minor) as part of a bigger deal next summer, but I think not...

Excuse me, but did you read the article in question? And also, do you know anything about the publishing newspaper?

No, I don't know the language. I am sure you would question authenticity of information that is not in original form.
What's your point besides just questioning someones post? Or you are not sure that Norway actually exists, has newspapers, doctors like in here?

A doctor can make an educated guess though, why would you argue that? It's better than the "Indefinetly" that Rangers gives us.

Why rush him back..hes not callahan, gaborik, richards, or henrik. Hes done for the year, its a moot point. drop it. Whether he will be a ranger next year or not is different, hes done this year though. Just destiny for Kreider to enter the fold IMO.

Well he just joined today and if he tweeted too often, twitter would probably break down due to all the retweets
