    It's good because it's the likely cause of the restricted blood flow, if the fix works there will be no blood thinners required which means he will be able to come back and play again.

    Of the last 9 cups, Pitt and Chicago account for 6.

    Chicago first won in 2009-2010. Prior to that, from 1997 to 2008 (12 years) they absolutely sucked. Record of 343 - 414 - 145. 7th fewest wins in the league. Between 1997 and 2005, they had 8 top 15 draft picks and they still sucked enough to draft Toews #3 in 2006 and Kane #1 in 2007. Is that what you want the Rangers to do? Suck miserably until they luck into drafting a Toews and a Kane?

    Pittsburgh first won in 2008-2009. Prior to that, from 2001 to 2006 they had the FEWEST wins in the NHL. 100 - 178 - 50. During those 5 years they drafted #5, #1, #2, #1, #2. They were lucky enough to draft two players better than Toews and Kane in Malkin and Crosby. They got lucky that there was generational talent available to coincide with the beginning of their suckiness.

    See Edmonton for what 8 straight top 10 picks will do without generational talent, Buffalo has had 5 straight. Arizona has had 8 picks in the top 8 (including the #7 they traded to us) in the past 13 drafts.

    Let's see...Washington had 12 first round picks between 2002 and 2007, to include a #1, #4, and #5. They haven't won a cup or as many playoff games as the Rangers.

    What else...The Trashers/Jets are finally having a good year. Since their inception in 1998 - 1999 to 2015 - 2016 they went 518 - 593 - 167. That's second worst in the league for 17 years. They had 2 #1 picks; 3 #2 picks; 1 each #3, #4, #7, and #10; 2 each #8 and #9. That's 13 top ten picks with an overall playoff record of 0 - 8. Fan-fucking-tastic to have to live through that if your a fan of theirs.

    Fuck rebuilding, I'd rather watch playoff hockey.

    Though the 26-year-old Kreider was already expected to miss a significant stretch, this might push his time table back further, according to medical experts.

    Dr. Tony Wanich, assistant clinical professor of orthopedic surgery at Seton Hall, and Dr. Michael Zervos, thoracic surgeon at NYU Langone Health, neither of whom operated on Kreider and have no knowledge of his specific case, said direct recovery from a rib resection does not actually take that long, as the incisions heal pretty quickly.

    The impending rehab process, however, could delay Kreider’s eventual comeback.

    There are positive bounce-back stories associated with this procedure. Tampa Bay’s Steven Stamkos had a rib resection in early April 2016 and returned to the ice for Game 7 of the Eastern Conference Finals seven weeks later. Stamko’s teammate, goaltender Andrei Vasilevskiy, underwent the surgery in September 2015 and was back in less than two months as well.

    Both doctors said two-to-three months seemed like a reasonable timetable. Wanich estimated Kreider has a 70 percent chance of returning within two months of the operation, and a 90 percent chance within three months.
