He is key player for the Wings come playoff time. There is no doubting he will win the Selke, even despite this injury.

Has there been any estimates on how long he'll be out. Rotator cuff injuries are not good with less than a month and a half till the playoffs start. We'll be in bad shape on the PK with Drapes during the playoffs.

according to the papers etc....
Drapes was with others on shot practice...got a last pass, took the shot and his twig hit/got stuck/glanced off CUJO's mask.....
Drapes went down weird on his left shoulder....which is his shooting side. He's a LEFTY.
A friend had spures in his shoulder...(not a tear) but he came back to his normal activities in about a month.
Knowing DRAPER and the staff....he'll take the week...heal the muscle around it etc. Then begin treatment.... He's in excellent condition/Health....
Maybe 3 weeks... He can keep up his conditioning... like Homer DID... skate, ride the bike.... sprints....etc.
But more like 4....it's a bumer.....
I hope this doesn't hurt his chance at the Selke....

I damaged my rotator cuff playing football 3 weeks ago. I couldn't raise my arm past 90 degrees and your confidence to deliver and take hits is also effected. It still hurts now - I am even changing gears in my car with my opposite arm it hurts that much.
I say Drapes should go to surgery if required or rest up until the playoffs. It should improve by then but if it there is still pain I am sure he will get the cortisone shot to get him through the 1st round.....cause that's where the Wings season ends hehehe
