    Schneider back in the line-up ?

    Well it seems like Schneider may be back in the line up tonight against the Bruins against all expectations! He practiced with the team this morning and intends to play tonight.

    Unbelieavable!!! I guess he was told by the NY doctor that there was no danger of aggravating the injury if he was able to continue playing. That surgery could be postponed until the end of the season.

    I've had a similar injury to his years ago & it's difficult for me to imagine how he'll be able to make a slapshot considering how bad his shoulder is. He likely won't be able to check anyone using that shoulder & getting checked on that shoulder will likely make him experience excruciating pain. This makes me question how effective he'll be & if the team wouldn't be better off playing someone else in his place.

    By postponing the surgery until the end of the season, does it mean that he's considering retirement? By getting the surgery performed now, he likely would be ready for the start of the next season, if he elected to play another year.

    He got told by Montreal Canadiens doctor that he could play after his injury but he wanted a confirmation of this by a doctor not associated to the team because he have no contract for next year and want make sure that this injury wont affect his future.

    Tonight on the powerplay he will be passing the puck to Yannick Webber who will be in charge of the shooting.

    Well for a guy that is not able to shoot, I guess he did quite well.

    Hi Darling,

    In the case of Mathieu Schneider cortisone injections would be more like it .

    Or ... both perhaps !

    I tend to think that an injection of Demerol would be more effective & efficient in his case. But it's possible that with Demerol, his mind might tend to go a bit loony. Yep, i'm with you & i'm betting it's Cortisone. Or maybe he just takes a Percocet tablet prior to the games.
