As awful as he's been this season, I would NOT want to lose him for more than a few weeks. I have a bad feeling about it.
exactly, a couple of games probably wouldn't be that big of a deal, but any longer would suck. Even though he hasn't put up any points lately he is still a threat out there, and the opposition still has to pay attention to him.
It's unfortunate because hes been playing really well the last two games. One thing I notice is hes been the best guy at winning offensive one draws to get a good shot on net. For the two games he played with Kovalev and the last game with about 5 seconds he won the draw right onto Kovalev's stick for a quick shot on goal.
That would be horrible news... likely out for the season is so.
I think a high ankle sprain is about 6-8 weeks, but apparently it takes alot longer then that to fully heal. A couple years ago Crosby suffered one in January and I believe came back in March, and Miller went through the same thing last year as well.
