Rem Murray Feeling Better

from the Detroit Free Press,
Rem Murray could not look over his right shoulder. He barely could play with his young kids. And hockey? Hockey was his career, and hockey was out of the question. To say it is a success that Murray is even here at Red Wings training camp really is not an understatement. Thursday was his third day of skating at Centre ICE, his third day of centering a line between Steve Yzerman and Kirk Maltby, his third day of absorbing hits and feeling fine. It is a stark contrast to how he felt 20 months ago, when a neurological disorder threatened to end a respectable NHL career. It is even in stark contrast to just a few months ago. "When I get out on the ice I don't think about it at all, which is the biggest thing, to put it behind me mentally," he said. "It's good to get back and play again.
