Game-day skate and pre-game skate/warmup are 2 very different things.

Lots of people "work hard", not many get multi-million dollar contracts for it. It's horrible what happened to Malhotra and I wish him all the best because he seems like a genuinely good guy in the game, but it's not like his life is in danger and its not like he's going to become a pauper from this incident. At worst he'll lose vision in one eye and possibly his place in the NHL...greater tragedies have occurred.

No matter the money, it is a big step to give up what you have striven for all your life. I think more along those lines and most of us can identify with it from our own perspective.

If you got a really great career but things happen which might make you start over with something else, it is a tough choice. I would certainly think a lot before I decided to quit on my life project. If he can get a job within hockey if he quits, then it is fine, compared with some less attractive job (from a hockey perspective).

Let's not venture too far into "how much money athletes make" territory. This thread is to discuss injuries to Vancouver Canucks players. If you would like to discuss their salaries and how this makes them more or less fortunate/sympathetic than the average bear, start a thread on it.

Thank you.

The only reason anyone knows about it is Twitter and Steve Nash. I doubt anyone will provide specifics about anything beyond that.

Most likely because they don't know too much until it starts to heal. Other than there was no complications. But how it heals up is most likely up to his body, I would think? Just a guess, im no doctor

Ditto...fingers crossed for Manny. (before anyone reads into the brevity of the tweet, I agree with the above--it will be difficult to tell whether or not it has been successful until swelling has gone down post-op.)

After further consultation with specialists and team doctors, today Vancouver Canucks forward Manny Malhotra underwent a second successful eye procedure. Manny Malhotra’s health continues to be the primary concern of the hockey club. Progress updates will be made available at the appropriate time. No further comment is planned at this time.

I am hearing Malhotra's surgery went as well as could be expected but it may be 6 to 8 weeks before there is a firm long term prognosis.

For a second I thought it was going to say "6-8 weeks before he returns."

At the very least I'm going to assume/hope that means he has a good chance not to lose his eye now. Regaining total vision is obviously still up in the air, but if he can regain even partial vision out of that eye I'd have to think it would be considered a pretty major success.

This should help narrow it down for KHB ... if she comes back.

My dad had a similar surgery after getting a piece of ice in his eye. Even though he eventually regained full use of his eye, he had blurred and double vision for several months after surgery.

I'd love to hear from KHB again to see what this surgery may mean, although the fact that he traveled to New York to have it done could lead me to believe it could be a detached retina as per KHB's original post:

Quote:
It is probably not "just" a retinal detatchment. Yes, he may have a detached retina underneath it all, but surgery to fix a traumatic retinal detachment if there is no other eye injury is not done emergently overnight. It requires a subspecialist eye surgeon (vitreo-retinal surgeon) and could require sophisticated equipment that needs to be run by special trained operating room technicians. Mobilizing all of that in the matter of hours usually doesn't happen, and retinal detachment surgeries usually go to the OR during the daytime when it can be all organized.
That's entirely speculation on my part, though. Part of me is also hoping it's that and not a ruptured globe.

Yeah, Mackenzie basically said that there is a chance his career will be over, they will not know for 8 weeks.

Too soon for speculation but IF all goes well, playing again MAY be possible. One day at a time tho. Let's hope for the best.
