Ryan Callahan will undergo MRI on his shoulder this afternoon...— New York Rangers (@NYRangers) January 30, 2013
The injury was to his left shoulder and the results should be available by tomorrow.
...the next 24-hours is going to feel like 24 days waiting for the results of that MRI. Everyone say a little prayer before they go to bed tonight.
I just saw Loktionov with the Kings is asking for a trade. He's a 22 year old center, but the only thing is he's 5'10. He's in the AHL but has some NHL experience. In fact, he's almost a point every other game. I guess the log jam at center is his issue with the Kings. Interested?
The arm rests in th shoukder socket similar to a golf ball on a T. Not much hilding it in place but deltoid and labrum and rotater cuff. Most shoulder dislocations - the arm is pulled down and out if socket. With subluxation it pops back (or forward). It's more rare but he issue is if the labrum (or how severely) is torn. The only reason I know all this is because I had the exact same injury playing hockey and it required surgery. I want to remain positive about the prediction but given the nature of the game and how Cally plays the concern is worse injury if he comes back too soon.
@chrisD I'm assuming there's varying degrees of this, so hopefully his isn't too serious.
@KevinDeLury the tissue that keeps the shoulder in place like a suction cup is, in part, the labrum - front and back- my understanding is - any time theres a dislocation the labrum tears and - yes -it's a matter of how severely. shoulder injuries are easily made worse by blunt force trauma like hitting the boards or the ice. I really hope it's minor but it looked bad going off the ice - you could see the shoulder was displaced.
So wait, we're not trading Kreider, Hagelin, Stepan, and McDonagh for Bobby Ryan now to make up for the loss of Cally?
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG No. Rupp is invaluable the way he uses his face to tire out the opposing team's enforcers!
@JMK8363 @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG @KevinDeLury @gravey94 Rupps intangibles really show when I'm playing NHL 13 on Xbox.
Does anyone knows what happenned to Larry Brooks I don't see any articles by him in the NY Post. Did he leave the paper? If anyone knows I'd appreciate a respnse.
@erichan Get back to us on definition.
@KevinDeLury @erichan a subluxation is a partial separation and is much less severe than a full separation. The joint gets weakened but the damage is usually limited. The 10-14 days period is to allow for some healing and for its strength to return.
Any idea of the 10-14 days is until he's game ready, or until they put him out at practice with a non-contact jersey and its actually more like 3 weeks til he's back in the roster?
If it's anything is a separated shoulder or possibly an injury to the joint on the collar bone, you see that injury a lot in wrestling and mma, Talbot leaned in hard on his shoulder when it was locked and you can see it move funny I think that's when it happens
MRI isn't good prolly means they're thinking muscle. I was hoping it was a simple dislocation 3 weeks tops, but looking bad.
@GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG I'm not one for conspiracy theories (actually yes I am), but maybe they know the news is bad are just holding off. Andrew Gross says they might release it before tomorrow.
@ShreddyMercury @KevinDeLury @GLENsatherVSglennDANZIG a separated shoulder would be closer to 6 weeks, if no major surgery was needed. Plus an additional week or 2 of strengthening because it will be really weak once healed.
I would LOVE to see them bring up Mashinter. He's got 6 points in 6 games with the Whale. I mean he can't be worse that Penaltybury and Brandon "I'm as lost on the ice as Katy" Segal (pardon the crappy names, having a 2 month old brings on lack of sleep and short bursts of caffeine.
