and i saw the Ruutu hit on Jagr....and i noticed that it was Jagrs left shoulder that was driven into the boards awkwardly, the same shoulder he seperated. i wonder if the 2 are mutually exclusive, it wouldnt surprise me one bit if that hit led to his shoulder being more prone to injury.
Who knows if the hit had any impact on Jags shoulder- it certainly could have. He was able to play through that hit, but who knows if it inflicted any type of minor structural damage. As long as he's healthy come October. . .
