Kukla's Korner Hockey

From Mike Harrington at Sabres Edge,
Lots of news from the Sabres camp Wednesday around Teppo Numminen and Jocelyn Thibault—two guys who haven’t seen the ice much this season outside of practice.
The latest on Numminen is that he’s been told he has to wait six months after his heart surgery—or the middle of March—before Sabres doctors clear him for full contact. And while it still smells like the Sabres are trying to shirk their way out of paying any of his $2.6 million salary, I reached Numminen at his home today and he said, “doctors talk to doctors” when asked what has changed in the last week since he gave a glowing post-practice report after a return from the Cleveland Clinic. The heart is fine but no one, he says, is confident the scar in his chest cavity is sufficiently healed for him to play.
continued… with updates on Thibault as well
