Just another injury in a long-line of them for Richards, and with him playing through the majority of them, who knows how it'll affect him long-term. Hope it doesn't wind up being another case of a physical smaller player breaking down before he should, because he's one hell of a player when he's healthy.
Last I heard that was the deal with Pronger, but the herniated disc was leading to groin problems? I can't keep up.
I read today Betts, Meszaros, Richards, Versteeg, Leighton (I think that was all of them) will undergo surgery and Pronger and Carter will be reevaluated tomorrow to see if they need it. Talk about being banged up.
