I could be wrong, and I hope I am, but if he has enlargement of his spleen, wouldn't he have to sit out for 12-18 months until his spleen returns to normal? I couldn't imagine any doctors clearing anyone to play any contact sport, especially at the NHL level, with an enlarged spleen.

Lordy, I hope the spleen is not enraged.

Emdog will be on the third line soon if this keeps up.
Ok, 2 dollars. 2 dollars to stop calling him Emdog.
If anyone is going to get a chance, it's Gus. I can't see them inserting Cory when Eaves have been cleared to play. Eaves is > than Emmerton and so is Gus.

I don't recall hearing that his spleen was enlarged.  Is there a source?  While it's possible to have an enlarged spleen with mono, it's certainly not expected.  When it does happen though, I believe it's 4-6 weeks from the time of diagnosis that he'd be out.  Given that he'll already be out for a month it wouldn't really make a huge difference.

Mono can get pretty intense...I got it my junior year of high school ,had the 6 week Mono bug and it attacked my spleen and tonsils. Doctors told me I was lucky to still have my tosils as they offset the damge to spleen. I was quarantined at my house for 6 weeks and ended up missing 11 weeks of school. Honestly, if he indeed has the 6 wek strain and its already hitting his spleen I would be suprised as hell if hes back in 2 months. The toll it takes on ur body is incredible, I lost 37 lbs and would sleep for 24 hours and basically lived off iv and chicken soup. It was hell

Yeah, when my wife had it, she was utterly wiped out for a year, sleeping 18 hours a day, and she wasn't 100% for another couple of years after that, she would just fall asleep at the drop of a hat.


"If I can be totally honest, it's not a lot of guys you get impressed by. Actually, it's no one else but him. From the bench, to see what move he makes -- you're like, 'I wish I could do that.' Sometimes you sit on the bench and just think, 'wow,' and you look over to the other bench and they sit there and shake their heads, too. He has great, great skills. I'm probably not going to play with another player who has the kind of skills he has." Mikael Samuelsson on Pavel Datsyuk

We don't need Bert falling asleep at the drop of a puck. We have the rest of the team for that, apparently.   ;)   I kid the Red Wings.

 

What that game needed last night was more Bert.  Get better soon, big fella.

Bertuzzi actually did have mono, but upon hearing exactly whom they infected, the virus promptly vacated the premises.
