It's never the same again, it will never fit together as snuggly and be prone to getting separated again.
That's what the specialist told me. Even worse because I tore the hell out of my rotator cuff too. That's why I feel really sympathetic towards Gunnar. Hopefully his isn't as bad as mine. I've got no end in sight when it comes to physio.
I thought he had a great season. The best of all the Leafs defencemen, in fact.
He basically got injured last night by playing the same way he has all year long: taking punishment down low to make the right play, reducing risk and danger in our own end. No player played as well and as smart in our end than Gunnar. Not one.
I actually like Marcus to an extent. Nick is a gigantic d-bag though.
Marcus Foligno plays the game that is reminiscent of how once Wendel played for the Leafs in the past .. Hits, fights, scores what is not to like. If Tyler Biggs can play like Marcus Foligno does than Leaf Nation should be very happy.
It was too bad Gunnarsson got hurt on the play, but that hit shook the building, that he took from Foligno yesterday.
Thought I'd drop this link in, quotes Gunnarson talking about the injury.
Interesting to see the injured play take some responsibility for getting injured. Not sure I've ever seen someone come out and say 'my bad' about being injured before.
Gunnarsson was admittedly upset about the play in question because he felt the collision was avoidable. He noted seeing the six-foot-two, 215-pound Foligno charging in on around the goal, but took an extra split second to make a play, allowing the Sabres 20-year-old to deliver the thunderous hit.
"Situations similar to that happen a lot during the season," he said. "That was just a bad move by me. I usually come out of it in a good way, try to spin off the guy and take the hit in the right way, but this time I didn't do it and I've got to pay for it."
