Yes, because an intended cheap shot is the exact same as accidentally slicing a person's wrist with your skate while in the midst of falling down.


I guess that means that Olli Jokinen had no reason to apologize to Richard Zednik, then.

I know that if that had been me, I'd feel like sh*t about possibly ending someone's career, regardless of whether it was an accident or not.

A redesigning of the glove itself might not be a bad idea.

Wrist guards wouldn't be a bad idea.

Wrist guards are uncomfortable and most players will admit they seem to get in your way. Hence alot of players using the short style gloves nowadays, but doing so you have accidents like this happen.

Exactly. I'm far from an NHL caliber player, but does that little extra bit on the end of the glove really make that big of a difference?? Seems like the protection against slashes alone is worth it.

zednik very easily could have died. once again its a bad comparison. perhaps we should bring up kevin walker and if he apologized for ending bo jacksons football career as well? would be an equally useless comparison!

I love Maltby, but to say he wasn't a ****** is a dis-service to his career of douchebaggery.

It wasn't a useless comparison. What I suggested was that the classy thing for Umberger to do would be to apologize to Modano. If he didn't, it wouldn't be the end of the world.

Red Wings' Mike Modano talks about wrist injury for first time

By HELENE ST. JAMES
FREE PRESS SPORTS WRITER

SAN JOSE, Calif. -- Red Wings forward Mike Modano knew the second he looked into his glove just how bad his injury was. All he saw was blood.


Modano spoke Monday for the first time since undergoing surgery Saturday to repair a severed tendon and nerve damage in his right wrist. He was hurt last Friday night when he was cut accidentally by the skate of Columbus forward R.J. Umberger.
"Once the skate hit me, the pain was really sharp, and I knew something was wrong," Modano said in a telephone interview with the Free Press. "When I looked in the glove and saw the type of bleeding there was, I knew something was really wrong. I knew it wasn't going to be good news."
For starters, Modano is looking at eight weeks in a cast that immobilizes his arm. Modano said specialist who performed the operation, Dr. Richard Singer, is "very hands-on and is concerned not just about me playing hockey again but about my quality of life."
The Wings are hoping, but far from certain, that Modano, a Westland native, will be back for the playoffs. They signed him specifically to boost their offense, seeing the 40-year-old all-star as a perfect, veteran addition. On his end, it was a chance to come home after 21 years with the Stars franchise.
"I'd be devastated if my career ends like this," he said. "Hopefully I can come back and play. But this has been a real bummer."
Arm Immobilized, He's Coping
Modano surfaced from the anesthesia to see rubber bands looped through stitches sewn into his fingernails.
It's part of the dramatic recovery Modano faces. Instead of being with his teammates tonight in San Jose as they take on the Sharks, Modano is holed up at his suburban Detroit home, looking at a probable eight weeks in a cast that has immobilized his entire right arm.
"I'm learning to eat left-handed," he said. "I'm pretty limited."
After he was hurt Friday night, Modano, 40, skated off holding his wrist, and his suspicion about the injury's severity was underscored when team trainers made an appointment for him the following morning with hand specialist Dr. Richard Singer, who performed the surgery right away. When he came to, Modano wondered about those rubber bands.


Hope he can get back to contributing soon.

You hate to see him going through something like that.
