Dammit!

 

Why do our players always get hurt when they're in the middle of a hot streak?

Must be like a bad sprain right? Because there's no way he's missing only four weeks with a torn ligament or a broken knee right?

You knew that would be the case as soon as he couldn't put any weight on it getting off the ice.

I was sitting in section 1 in row 20, and didn't even notice him on the ice until my buddy pointed it out to me.  And he stood up, and yelled to the ref to blow the play dead just as soon as the Ducks were bringing the puck down ice.  Ironically enough the whistle blew like right at that point.  But yea.  Watching him completely struggle off the ice wasn't fun to watch, and you just knew it wasn't good.  But if it's just a sprain, that makes me feel better because those always heal back 100%.

Maybe but with the devils medical team and their track record with injuries they would prob say the same thing if his leg was cut completely off at the knee.

Min 4 weeks? With our injury record there is no way. We all know he will not be back till after the olympic break (7 weeks away). He will play his next game for Switzerland. Let's hope other guys step up!

All things considering this is not terrible news. We don't know much about Brunner yet, maybe he's a fast healer

@TGfireandice: Lou Lamoriello said Damien Brunner will miss "approximately four weeks" with a right knee injury. He does not need surgery, just rehab.

@TGfireandice: No surgery means Brunner's ACL was not impacted. Lamoriello confirmed that, but wouldn't say exact nature of the injury.

It happens all the time with this team.  Look at Larsson.

This sucks, but in the grand scheme of things, this team has been pretty fortunate with injuries this season thus far (knock on wood).

Kinda surprised Elias or Jagr hasn't gone down yet. We can all at least agree Brunner is somewhat replaceable.. If we lost one of the big guys we'd be in big trouble

One can't believe the Devils management re: medical durations they are always understated.

4 weeks is probably good news, even though it will probably be closer to six knowing the devs injury timelines. It could have been a lot worse.

Just realised it's probably almost better if it's 6-7 rather than 4. Olympic break is three weeks, so rather than possibly rushing, going over to play for Switzerland and re-injuring it, he can stay here and heal properly.

I think Brunner will be back before the Olympics.  If he's back in 4 weeks, you're looking at around the middle of January.  Olympics don't start until February 9th I believe.

I think everyone's operating on the Larsson assumption- 4 weeks in Lou speak probably means 6 minimum.
