    According to MSG TV, after getting his shoulder operated on, he lost one of his nerves. The nerve affected disables him from being able to use his catching glove. They are trying to get him to use 2 blockers instead, but how good can a goalie be without a glove?

    Very sad if this is the end of the line for him. I hope he can overcome this

    Dan Blackburns career in doubt

    John Davidson was on TV today. Not surprising, we've been hearing rumblings like this. Danny joined the Checkers if the ECHL Monday, he looks to be completely done. Not that hes not good from the time off, but he can't physically play. It doesn't look like he will ever play again.

    I didn't notice that. Maybe I didn't follow the Rangers much... but I could swear I attended a game last year in which he completely killed the Habs. The shots were like 40 to 15 or something and he was a wall.

    That was 2 seasons ago.
     
  11. Poor guy. Had a lot of potential to be a great goalie. Must suck to get such a bad injury.

    I'm a fan of Blackburn, and all I can do is cross my fingers and hope he's atleast able to play another game in the NHL.

    I think his developement was rushed. He should not have been introduced to the NHL at such a young age when he clearly wasnt ready. A great talent, but not was not a great NHL goalie during his short career. I know the injury isnt really related, but thats still my opinion.

    He might had been rushed a little..but he was ready...he had a very good rookie season (rookie goalie standards). He was ready for the NHL when he played his first game.

    Wow...I have a shoulder injury myself but to be unable to lift your arm ever. That truly has to hurt. Forget the career, this is a big obstacle for the rest of his life.

    I think he was probably rushed too. Like Diepietro. Rick wasn't ready for the NHL at 18 but after a couple of seasons of AHL hockey he is. All-star too I think.

    And also he was on the Rangers. A team not known for playing defensive hockey. Too bad about Dan's injury. I didn't know it was this bad. Luckily for the Rangers they have Lundqvist and Montoya.

    "We're sorry for mishandling your development and now making you unable to use your arm, well I guess your contract is running out right about now.." Hope it's not true, a link would be nice.

    He wasnt rushed. A lot of nights he was simply amazing. I say he wasnt rushed because the D in front of him was laughable. He would have done a lot better.
