Shea Weber Won’t Rush Back After Knee Surgery

from Mike Zeisberger of NHL.com,

Shea Weber wants to help the Montreal Canadiens as soon as possible, but won't rush back from offseason knee surgery.

The 33-year-old defenseman originally thought he would be able to return for the start of the season, but when doctors were conducting an arthroscopy on his right knee on June 19 they discovered a more comprehensive procedure to repair a meniscal tear was required and told him he would need 5-6 months to recover.

"I hope to return earlier but if it's another four months it's another four months," Weber said at the Canadiens' annual golf tournament at Laval-sur-le-Lac golf club on Monday. "I've got to do what's right for myself long term. For me to come back too soon and get hurt again, that doesn't help anybody."

He won’t rush back, he’ll slowly lumber back, just like he does on the ice.

Drouin, Tatar and Gallagher is their best line? So the only reason he has to get healthy is to get traded

Sure looks like even if Price returns to form and is a top 5 goalie in the league, the team stands little chance of being a Cup contender for years. That’s going to make the money they are paying Price a total disaster.
