Radko Gudas Will Have Arthroscopic Knee Surgery, Keith Ballard Unsure Of His Future

via Bryan Burns of TampaBayLightning.com.

Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas will undergo arthroscopic knee surgery on Tuesday in Tampa.

A determination following surgery will be made on how long Gudas will be out of the Lightning lineup.

Gudas, 24, returned to Tampa on Sunday prior to the Lightning’s 4-2 victory in Ottawa. He is schedule to receive further examination after missing training sessions Friday and Saturday and three-straight games.

from Michael Russo of Russo's Rants,

I wanted to quickly blog that defenseman Keith Ballard talked today for the first time since he sustained three facial fractures and a concussion Dec. 9 against the Islanders.

Ballard, 32, the Baudette native and former two-time Gophers national champ, is still experiencing symptoms and has done nothing other than taking walks since the injury. He admits that he’s not sure if he’ll ever play again. He said he’s going to let this play out before determining if he’ll return.

Ballard said during his last concussion that he’s worried about his future and wants to make sure he’s healthy in his post-hockey career as a husband and dad to two children.

He said that again today.

Gudas delivers yet another elbow to a player’s head

Tampa Bay Lightning defenseman Radko Gudas certainly has "sharp elbows." He was given 5 and a game for this hit to Antoine Roussel, who remarkably emerged (eventually) unscathed as he helped the Dallas Stars defeat the Tampa Bay Lightning 5-2:

Video- Johan Franzen Going Through The Concussion Protocol After Hit From Radko Gudas

According to the Detroit Red Wings, Johan Franzen will miss Tuesday's game with Anaheim while going through the concussion protocol for this hit yesterday from Tampa Bay's  Radko Gudas.

Franzen received and unsportsmanlike penalty on the play for complaining about the hit and non-call.

The NHL takes a look at all hits but will they take further action on this hit?

Turnaround in Tampa Starts at the Top

Before a single tweak to the roster, the Tampa Bay Lightning were already poised for improvement in 2010-11. With the tumultuous era of previous ownership already behind them when the sale of the team to Jeff Vinik was completed late last season, gone in an instant were any and all off-ice concerns and the circus went back to being an annual visitor to the St. Pete Times Forum rather than a permanent resident. With the appointment of Steve Yzerman as general manager, credibility returned to the franchise and new head coach Guy Boucher was widely regarded as the hottest commodity on the off-season coaching market.

Without a solitary player move, hockey life in Tampa was good again.

But far be it from Yzerman to rest on the comfort that fans surely feel by him simply not being one of those other guys. The addition of former Flyers forward Simon Gagne headlines a list of shrewd off-season maneuvers for the rookie GM and the revamped roster could very well translate to the sort of on-ice success that will make Lightning followers quickly forgot about three non-playoff seasons gone by.
