Rucinsky Update

Any update on Rucinsky? I know he only played 5 mins last night and got injured again. He should have sat out at least 2 games.

Sit his *** since he's injured and put Prucha on the second or first line.

According to the Post...

it doesn't seem like he'll play. Hollweg will play instead, if he's a no-go. He says he feels something loose in there. That's not a good thing, but I believe the MRIs haven't revealed any structural damages. He should rest a couple games and get that thing to full strength. Everybody needing a rest should've been resting so this team would be healthy and peaking going into the...playoffs.

I know hockey players are supposed to be tough guys and play through injuries, but sometimes it's just better to sit a few games and get back to 100% rather than keep going out there and making things worse.

I agree bmoak...

when you miss 6-8 weeks due to a knee injury, and it once again feels unstable, you risk a greater injury - like an injury to the ACL, which will put him out at this point until about November, and at his age, who knows how he'd heal. And it's not pain he's experiencing - it's an unstable knee and I think he's just a bit worried (heck, I went 15 years with a torn ACL and meniscus with minimal pain - the bone rubbing sometimes gets to you). This team needs Rucinsky for the final push and into the playoffs. A couple games off to ensure that happens won't hurt his team, it will actually help it.

Let Rucinsky rest up as NY needs him healthy for the playoffs, someone else will have to pick up the offense, but at least we'll see one less hooking call.
