Stock as to what? Being tradeable? We weren't trading him. I'm sure he'll be back.

Dislocated kneecap sounds painful, but not that big of a deal in the long run

As Gordie said, they're going to wait for him as long as it takes. He's not being rushed and was probably another year or so away anyway. It sucks he got injured, but it does nothing to his "stock."

Here is an article I found on dislocated knee caps.

How to treat a dislocated kneecap.

The good news: In 90 percent of the cases, the kneecap returns to its groove spontaneously. There might still be pain and damage to supporting structures, so donít try to walk it off or put weight on it immediately. More good news: Getting the kneecap back into its proper position is safe and simple when performed by a health care professional.

It's rough. I had it happen to me in spring of 98. I was back on my motocross bike in 6 months. That's now my good knee and it has a gnarly 6" scar on it.

Sounds like you actually tore the patella tendon, which is much more serious. Not sure if that happened here as he was walking afterwards.

I wonder if this is a smokescreen. McIlrath could be wanted by Howson in a trade, and the Rangers took him out of play.

I'm reaching here.

If it had to happen, I'm happy it happened in July. It's not impossible to think this kid could be ready to go by September/October, minimizing the amount of time he loses.

It's an unusual injury--at least I haven't heard of too many kneecap dislocations. Cherneski shattered his--from what I understand it was in 3 or 4 pieces and that pretty much was that for his career. So it makes me wonder but to be honest I think there are some people here who just want to dog on him just because he wasn't the guy they wanted back when he was drafted. Injury can happen to anyone at anytime and that includes Tarasenko, Fowler and Gormley.

Operative

Some situations of patellar dislocation can and/or should be treated surgically. One situation is when recurrent dislocations occur. In these situations, to limit the amount of lost time in competition and to reduce the chances for cartilage lesions on the undersurface of the patella, which often are non-reparable, patellar stabilization procedures are appropriate. These procedures can be either soft tissue or bone procedures, or a combination thereof. First-time traumatic patellar dislocations can also be treated with procedures such as this, and in chosen situations doing so may be appropriate.

It has been found in retrospective studies that the incidence of recurrent dislocation after the first dislocation occurs can be as high as 40 percent. Surgically treating those dislocations by lessening lateral tension and tightening medial restraint could reduce this recurrence rate to below 10 percent.


Surgical procedures on the patella are usually done in the out-patient setting. Procedures limited to altering soft-tissue tension begin rehabilitation within a week and return to activity can be expected as early as six weeks. Procedures that require bone work (osteotomies) require a period of relative immobilization and need 10 to 12 weeks before a return to athletic activity is permitted.

The surgery decreases the chances of the injury occurring again.

Tore lcl and damaged the tendon. The patella actually broke and left behind bone fragments. I was walking morning after the surgery. Seeing your knee cap on the side of your leg really sucks.

I still mourn for Cherneski. I think he would've been a very similar player to Brendan Morrow for us.

I think McIlrath will always be dogged until the day he makes it to the NHL. I've always said that there were guys I would've taken before him, but I don't think he's a bad prospect - if you accept him for what he is.

Don't try to turn him into an offensive guy, don't wait for him to put elements into his game that make him the next Shea Weber, just accept him as a tough as nails stay at home type. Beukeboom with better fighting ability.

Is this dislocated kneecap injury resulting from him going out of position to make a hit in rookie camp? If so, this guy hasn't learned anything, his stock is dropping even more.

The physical stay at home guy hit an opposing forward... What could he possibly have been thinking...?

Next thing you know a young goalie may even try and stop a puck and pull a muscle.

What is the world coming to?

This is fine by me. Jeff Beukeboom was a very good Ranger. The type of player this team could use.
