My buddy I got seasons with is still having his knee treadted by Dr Feldman and had another of his visits today and they always BS about the NYR's and he asked Feldman about how Leetchie was doing and he said it's the same **** as last year and that he figured it would probrably still be another MONTH before Leetchie is able to come back!!!
Not good news at all.Hopefully the NYR's can hover at .500 until he makes it back, maybe even a couple games above with the long homestand and IF they can do that I think the team will be in very good shape once #2 finally laces them up.
Really not surprising. I'm sure the Rangers knew all along how long it would take for Leetch to come back last year instead they just said "day to day", and same goes for Richter before Sam and JD opened their mouths by mistake, he just had slight headaches but no concussion.
It wasn't just you but anytime I hear anything through my buddy when he visits Feldman everybody always says about the doctor/patient privledges so it really doesn't effect me one way or the other if I pass on the info to anybody else.
All I can say about this is Leetch should have known better, especially after his recent experience. If you're going to break in new skates without the brace, don't do it where teamates are shooting pucks, however carefully. Totally irresponsible.
