yave1964 Posted January 21, 2014 Share Posted January 21, 2014 Fans in Nashville are more than a bit frustrated with the Pekka Rinne recovery, for over a month the voices have been getting louder calling for a timetable for When/if we will see Rinne between the pipes again this season. The trade for Dubnyk may mark the end of hopes for Rinne this season. If so it is a damn shame, he is one of my favorite netminders, when he is on he can take over a game like nobody else, his massive size and quick glove hand make him as good as it gets between the pipes. From the Preds:We are encouraged and pleased to report that Pekka is moving on to the next stage in his recovery and rehabilitation. He has been cleared to begin weight-bearing exercises under the supervision of Dr. Thomas Byrd. There is no timetable for this stage as that will be evaluated by Dr. Byrd and our medical team on a daily basis. Our primary objective is to insure Pekka’s full recovery and return to the ice by taking every possible precaution throughout the process. We will provide further updates when available. This was from just a couple of days ago. Doesn't really say a lot. Reading the Nashville papers the whispers have become a murmur that Rinne will be shut down for the season really soon.
