The quote about his wife and bloody eye I'm sure was absolutely terrifying for her. I mean, I guess they knew he'd recover so that helps - but still very unsettling to see someone you care about with that happening to them nightly.
This is awesome news. The Rangers D will instantly be better when he joins the club, even if he is at 90%. I'm hoping he will be close to 100% vision in that eye, because that could become a factor considering you really use your peripheral vision in this game.
