Straka was playing with Torn Bicep

http://www.hockeyrodent.com/

According to Rodent the guy was pretty banged up.


Quote:
If you've been wondering why Martin Straka has been reluctant to shoot the past couple of months, I can finally reveal that he has been playing with a torn biceps muscle. It will require surgery... an operation he has been postponing for the sake of the team. Nominal recovery time is "four to six months".

What you also don't know is the intense pain he has endured along the way. Shots of painkillers were a daily regimen before games and practices.


What a warrior. and what a game 6 he had, he was everywhere.

Way to go Straks...

I just read that as well. Hats off to Marty. I hope he's ready in time for training camp.

Sorry if this seems a bit mean, but please, can we not call athletes warriors? That word should be reserved for those who really are, and not athletes...it's so cliche and ridiculous.
Straka is certainly one tough guy, but honestly, let's not call him a "warrior" or "soldier"...just something that's been annoying me.
That said, I love Straka and he played awesome, so much respect for him.

Man that deserves major props. I thought he played a hell of a series and to find out how truly hurt he was and didn't even show it is amazing.

It will suck to miss some time without him in the lineup, but his contributions to this run will not be forgotten. Great job, Marty

Wow a true warrior indeed.

4-6 months though is tough, he going to be extremely rusty when he does get back, at least he will be able to continue skating.

Very good opportunity for a kid though to get in the lineup early on in the season and hopefully stay.

I don't think it's out of place. Being a warrior is about character and attitude, not killing people.

It was obvious something was a little off with him after that amazing first half, we just didn't know what it was. I am as glad as anyone right now to have him back next season

Remember that goal against the Pens with 2 seconds left? Awesome times

Everyone plays injured down the stretch and in the playoffs i don't why people get excited each time we learn a player played injured.

Straka is a gamer...

Dude is important to the team. Great guy and can really work well with different linemates.

Look forward to him playing next year.

Because that is no joke of an injury... And when they do it, they deserve credit. This isn't a sore hammy.

playing with muscle strains, bruises, etc, is WAY different than playing with a torn bicep.

every movement with your hand is excruciating. i dont know how he did it.

This is a true Ranger right here.

I hope Marty Straka plays the rest of his career in the Ranger blue. What a player.

So i guess you must have a shrine at home of all the players that played with completely busted ankles.

Players play hurt in the playoffs, yes, but a torn bicep is painful. Hats off to Marty for manning up, and he was the best NY forward in Game 6 IMO.

Great series, guys. Be proud of your boys.

I know, I don't get why people get so excited when firefighters rescue people from burning buildings, or cops save peoples lives, or soldiers die defending our country. I mean, those people are just doing their jobs like everyone does so no reason to point out their efforts I guess.

Your right, this thread should be deleted, its silly to respect a player that plays though injury in the playoff.

Absolutely one of my all time favorite players. He comes to play every single game and is tough as nails. The guy played with a broken foot last year and now this year he plays with this. Incredible.
