Other then the lower body injury, Day To Day, nothing yet... only positive (if there is one) is Callahan may stay up a bit longer now....

Hope he gets well soon, has been a warrior for us all year...

Renney just said in the post game interview, it's not too bad. He hasn't been looked at by doctors yet but its not in the category of the other recent knee injuries....

I'm really hoping it's just that. I think Straka, despite being appreciated, still doesn't get enough love in general from Rangers fans. He puts in night in and night out. I've been so impressed with his play. During the Rangers Devils PO series, he seemed to be the only Ranger on the ice taking it to the next level.

I think they had an update during the 3rd period, but all they would say is that it's a lower body injury (what a surprise, vague injury reports late in the season ) and that he's day-to-day.

But yeah, it's a shame to see guy who works so hard like Marty Straka go down like that.

Straka has become one of my favorite players this year. Always knew about his talent but his intangibles stand out: incredibly hard worker, team player, intensity, passion for the game, intelligence, tough as nails, plays with pain, and boy oh boy, can he still skate. It's amazing nobody talks about his size (5'9"), he plays much bigger.
He's really been hurting recently and his offensive production has plummeted. But even with one shoulder, he's valueable. Hope he's back soon.

Looked like a hammy. Straka's always been a favorite of mine, but man has he had some injury problems in his career. Here's hoping for a speedy recovery.

Does it concern anyone that we may have a couple of guys (Shanny, Straka) returning for the Philly game?

Awards:
Weinman is saying exactly what we've all heard thus far:

"The early indication from Tom Renney is that Straka’s right knee (the team is saying “lower body injury”, but it sure looked like a knee to me) isn’t as bad as the other three Rangers who recently sustained similar injuries. And a telling sign is the fact that the team is already listing him as day-to-day, so maybe there actually is some hope."

I've never seen so many injuries to so many key players in my life. I'm just praying the most important guy on the team, the man in net, stays away from the bug.

Hopefully Shanny comes back this week as expected. I'd put him in Straka's spot and let Straka sit a few, so his now compounding injuries can heal. We need him 100% should we make the post season.

Straka has been invisible offensively lately, and while he is still a valuable back-checker and puck rusher, it might be in the team's best interest to give him time to heal and let a kid play an offensive role.

I agree, his numbers aren't that great lately (Or I could be wrong, anyone got stats?), but I love the guy. He's solid and refuses to give up. The only thing that worries me is he is no the kind to walk off the ice, I hope it's not being played down. Remeber when he hurt his shoulder the 2-3rd game back? He sat on the bench ignoring the trainer, he is a very tough, gritty, dedicated guy, let's just hope it's not bad.

Going on 35... this might be his last NHL season... he wants to play at home and with the ways the season is ending for him, I personally think he will retire in Czech Republic.

Didn't he sign a three year contract extension with the NYR a few months ago?

"As for Martin Straka, there’s been no further word from the team on his condition, but I suspect he’ll miss at least tomorrow, and that Brandon Dubinsky will be back in his place."

We can find a way for everybody who posted to be considered correct:

1) Straka signed a one year extension.

2) Which makes his current contract for two years

3) Which means he'll have served three years come spring of 2008, which is when (barring another extension) he will make a decision to become an unrestricted free agent or return to the Czech Republic.

Which (4) suggests 2006-2007 won't be his final campaign as a Blueshirt.

Now everybody is happy.
