Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Bill Beacon at the CP via Yahoo! Sports,
Many wonder how much more [Bobby Orr] may have accomplished had his knees held up, or if modern arthroscopic surgery had been available in his day. Back then, when a doctor wanted to know what was wrong with a knee, he had to cut into it to take a look. Now the looking and the surgery are done with a small incision that barely leaves a mark.
“I don’t think there’s any question about that,” he said. “I had scopes later, when they were cleaning it out, and it was a lot easier.”
The CP article was in part motivated by a recent Canadian Mastercard advertisement that graphically illustrates the damage Orr’s knee has suffered. You can check it out on video below:
