Prospal Injury more Long-Term?

This might not be the way to start out the season as Larry Brooks, the New York Rangers beat writer for the New York Post, reported the following:

Meanwhile, a well-placed source has told The Post that there’s little reason for optimism that the condition of Vinny Prospal’s right knee will improve following his enforced two-week rest period. Indeed, we’re told it would be no surprise at all should the 35-year-old require surgery that would likely end his season, if not his career.

Let’s hope that this isn’t the case because although older, Prospal proved last season that he can still contribute on both sides of the puck.

However, if he is indeed going to be out for awhile, I think it’s time for the team to finally embrace the young prospects they have in their system and give them a chance to show the organization that they can play in the National Hockey League.
