Legwand and Sully Injury Updates

As we suspected, Legwand to have his ACL done soon......meaing today.

Also as we suspected, Sully appears to have a sports hernia, and will see the guy in St. Louis who fixed Walker's earlier this year.

Some discrepency as to when Legwand is to actually have the surgery.
This article says next week in Detroit.....

I give him a lot of credit. It didn't look like his knee was as bad as this during the games.

On the Preds website in an story about some of the players summer plans, it said Legwand is scheduled to have the surgery on May 9. But it didn't say where.

So 2 out of 3 articles say the surgery is next week.

But wow, I'm wondering who's going to be the next to come out with an injury that needs surgery.

Well I can almost guarantee you that Sullivan will need surgery.

Handtrick: what about Walker....is that wrist going to need further attention?

Thanks for doing the legwork on that research handtrick. Definitely supports our suspicions that Sullivan was nowhere near 100%.

Unfortunately from what I could tell, [which is limited, of course, as I didn't get to see his MRI ,etc] it is a problem that either heals or it doesn't and some symptoms may remain long term. Surgery is usually very unpredictable.

I predict he becomes more of a checking line winger having to tape his wrist [but no splint] and will have a weaker shot, but can still play and be effective if given the proper role. There is also a chance that having the summer off may be all he needs to allow it to heal sufficiently that he comes back near 100%....very hard to tell at this point......

it's scary to think that we could start next season almost as banged up as we ended this one.

Both have surgery

It's Official.

As we expected, Sully did have a sports hernia and was fixed 2 days ago in St. Louis.

Leggy had his ACL fixed....6 days ago....also as expected.

For all that are interested...just talked to my partner this morning who does exclusively orthopedic sports medicine and is fellowship trained in it.

He said that with the current "aggressive protocol" that most cutting edge sports guys are using on ACL reconstruction currently.....they allow return to full sports at 4 months......I don't know what Michael Pagnaini's protocol is, but I bet it will be close to the "cutting edge."

So....if Legwand had his reconstruction on May 7th......4 months is September 7th...and training camp is usually third week of September......so I don't think it is out of the realm of possiblities for Leggy to be near 100% by opening day.....Oct 5th.

Of course....we shall see.

Thanks for the info. If Legwand brings the effort and intensity that he showed last season, he can be a really good player in this league.

The timetable you laid out seems consistent with the quotes we've been getting from the organization as well. From what I've read in the papers, Legwand is expected to be "hopefully" skating by the start of training camp, but most likely wouldn't be ready for contact at the beginning of training camp.

Here's to hoping that Legwand's recovery is successful and allows him to return to the lineup at full strength.
