WTF! Appears he had his knee scoped this morning. I guess they were keeping that under wraps pretty well.

I guess it could be worse. Any coincidence that this was right after the winning streak?

As long as he's fine for the playoffs, I have no complaints. Toews is out tonight too, so should be interesting.

4 home games in the next 2 weeks. Van, Col, Minn, and black-hacks. gonna be tough to keep the streak alive.

What kind of knee surgery takes only 2 weeks to recover from?

That's... less than spectacular. But I agree, best to get it done now and get him geared up for the playoffs. Last time Pavs was hurt Hank stepped up in a big way; he's already gotten on a nice run of late.

The minor arthroscopic kind, evidently.

I for one really do not care about the streak at this point, I want the team healthy/ready for the playoffs....

Better now then later, apparently they found chunks of dangle in his knee.

Seems just a little optimistic, but scoping isn't a big deal - I've had it done 4 times. You can walk on it the day of surgery. A little Aleve, some ice and a couple days later you're doing physical therapy. Well, 2 weeks later for me, but I've never been in that kind of physical condition. :)

Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

i was wondering the same.
apparently, it seems pretty minor: http://www.mlive.com...k_to_mis_1.html

i had a repair on my torn meniscus(sp?) a couple of years ago. it took me at least two mouth to feel I can do my usual activities. I guess this two month period can be cut in half with all right procedures, exercises etc. But two weeks... sounds a little too fast...

Hopefully this explains (and remedies) his recent slump in point production and failure to take faceoffs. Definitely need both of those to come back before the playoffs.

While I do agree about the faceoff portion of your post, but the man has still played very well defensively and lights out game-in-game-out...

Forgot the game vs Preds?

*ahem* Now that that's out of my system...

As long as Datsyuk is healthy and ready for the playoffs, then missing him for a few weeks in February is an acceptable price to pay. Although, it wouldn't surprise me if 2 weeks stretches to 3, or more.

Get well soon, Pavs! Bertuzzi and Franzen won't be the same without you!

Hey I'm not saying the guy isn't good, he's always a threat. But so far, February has been his worst month (since his beginning of the season slump). He's less than a point a game in Feb, and was a point a game or more in Nov., Dec., and Jan. Also, Feb. is the first month since Oct. that's he's posted a minus (granted, only -2). Still effective, but less effective over the last 10 games or so.
