Caps are notorious for not sharing much information on injuries. Your guess is as good as ours. "Being cautious." "No timetable."

For all we know it could be neck injury or possibly jaw(equilibrium problems would still make a full face mask argument null).

I'm hoping on his return after the all-star break.

VogsCaps: #Caps defenseman Mike Green will undergo abdominal surgery and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks.

I'm confused.

"#Caps defenseman Mike Green will undergo abdominal surgery and is expected to miss 4-6 weeks."



I've been waiting to read news like this; without knowing the details, seemed surgery might be a next step.

sorry Appreci8, didn't see your post, when I posted originally; I don't think you should be confused, see txpd's post below

groin injuries can be abdominally based. its surgery to attempt to fix his groin. the sports hernia is also sometimes called abdominal surgery

I don't think they ever disclosed enough to say there was no surgery option.

That sounds bad to me. The good news for Mike is that I'm not a doctor.

Get well soon, #52. Or even if it takes all year, that'd be fine, too--just get well whenever!

Just heard about Green on the radio but the update guy said he was out 6-8 weeks. Sucks to lose him no matter how long it is.

I am glad he is getting the surgery. Whatever is wrong its clear its signficant. Might as well put him under the knife now and try to fix it right, then have him hanging around Kettler waiting for it to "feel ok" to skate.

Maybe when it comes to factoring in what sort of cap space he may have to work with but there really aren't that many offensive defensemen likely to be available. Suter is a maybe but always a player I'd consider above their price range most likely. No one else comes close.

I'm taking all time estimates with many a grain of salt. One, sounds like he hasn't had the surgery yet; two, every case is unique and rehabs aren't all the same. Plus there are the cap issues with Green
on LTIR and what the Caps do between now and Feb 27 at 3pm, also impacts what happens with Green and LTIR and post-trade deadline even if he's healthy and cleared.

Green having surgery seems the logical next step. Done now, it gives GM time to grade his recovery some before the deadline should he feel the need to add more depth. And is being done at a time that leaves the door open for Green to help us in the stretch run if he can regain full health. I am kind of happy that Green tried to recover using all options including playing, and using surgery as a last resort.

He is having abdominal surgery. Seems to me he will be done until at least the playoffs if he comes back this season at all. I only make that prediction after seeing what my father went through when he had hernia surgery back when I was in High School. Sure my Father isn't a professional athlete like Green, but he was in damn good shape for an average Joe and he wasn't right for almost a year.

Regardless, that abdominal area gets a lot of twisting and torquing in a sport like Hockey. 6 weeks seems optimistic nevermind 4 weeks. Hope I'm wrong.

Well hopefully the surgery prevents future nagging injuries.

Get well, get well soon, we wish you will get well!

It could be that the abdominal thing is an unrelated relatively minor issue, and they just decided to fix it once they realized that the groin would take a long time to heal, anyway.

Abdominal injuries can often lead to recurring groin and hip problems, and vice versa.

Wouldn't be at all surprised if that's the case here.

Polunty in Hershey came back from hernia surgery in about a month and a half. Seemed to come back to game shape pretty quick. Everyone is different though.

It is about Green had some form of surgery other ways of heeling the injury have not helped. Hope all goes well.

Counting tonight's game against the Islanders, 20 games until the TDL. 8 home games and 12 away. Three of the home games will be against Boston twice and and San Jose, along with two SE Division teams. Six of the away games are against SE Division teams. Of the 20 games, three are against the Canadiens, tomorrow night's foe. These next 20 should provide the opportunity to separate from the rest of the SE Division or

The NHL has posted hits of the year (seems early) and neither of Orlov's hip checks are included. Ovi's in there, of course, but really? That check on Wheeler earlier this season was heartwarming and the more recent shot on Downie was the play of the game, really. No love for the kid. Not famous enough I guess.
