For those who didn't hear it, he was back this week for a long interview. Man I miss him!

The Facebook/Myspace conversation was pretty funny.

Here's an uncomfortable question:

Will Morrow ever be the same again?

Until this setback we'd seen a steady progression to elite NHLer. Every time you thought his game had finished developing, he'd add a new skill. A wicked one-timer here, a behind-the-back pass there. Get better somehow.

But have we already seen the pinnacle?

And more importantly, is this team capable of achieving playoff success without Morrow at his very best?

Well I do hope it's not a recurring ailment, obviously. As long as he doesn't keep reinjuring the same area, he should be back to normal. Maybe he won't have quite the same physical edge, but I think we'd still see the Morrow-Ribeiro chemistry that was dominant in the postseason.

I also think it is important to remember that he calculated it out and he is only 27 in NHL years...slightly different from dog years it turns out

ACL's don't tend to stunt a player's development (or knock their level down) in hockey, where they're not a particularly common injury. Much more worrisome from a "can he come back the same" perspective are concussions, groins/hips, shoulders and wrists.

Honestly, beyond the impact factor, hockey isn't all that hard on the knees physically, especially now that reconstruction surgery has come so far.

If it were soccer or basketball or football, which puts a lot of stress on the knees and relies a lot on explosive moves from a standing position, I'd be a lot more worried. But hockey is a lot more about constant motion and ebb and flow than explosive motion and stops, and Morrow was honestly never all that mobile or fast to begin with.

To be honest, the high ankle sprains in hockey scare me more than ACL injuries. It just seems that HAS just seemt to never quite heal completely for a long time and it is quite easy to re-aggravate the injury.

It's entirely possible Morrow's knee comes back better than it was. In fact, it's probable because he'd be putting extra training into strengthening the area. That assume he doesn't rush things, which I'm not certain he won't do because he wants to play.

But hey, I'm not an orthopedist, nor have I torn a ligament. I did though once stay at a Holiday Inn Express.

There isn't much you can do to actually strengthen the area around the knee. Morrow pointed this out in the interview.

Hamstrings are also the kind of thing that can become a recurrent problem, like the ankle. And Morrow's for all intents and purposes was injured as well, as part of the surgery.

Piqued - you can't strengthen the knee itself, but you can strengthen the quad and hamstring and calf. When you're doing non-surgical rehab of a knee injury (*waves*), you spend a lot of time working on your quads.

I'm not worried about his hamstring either because it's how they fix all ACLs now, and you very rarely hear about hamstring issues being a recurring injury in their aftermath. Combine that with a forced 4-6 month recovery time, and it shouldn't pose the same risk as an ankle, where guys always try to come back within a couple weeks.

Thank you. It's the muscles around the knee that will end up strengthening it because it would make it more resistant to injury.
