Ryan Suter Rehab Update...

I included some quoted material that jumped out to me in the article in case you are not a subscriber.  IMO, it says a lot about Suter's relative arrogance / confidence in that he's right and everyone else be damned.  Enjoy...

 

Quote

 

They end with Suter lying on a training table as his ankle is worked on. From his back, Suter reminds his physical therapist that he’s already behind his normal offseason skating schedule, and for a second it’s easy to forget that Suter’s injury was so serious that similar ones have ended the careers of professional soccer and basketball players. But, he tells his therapist, he wants to be skating in August so he can be ready for the first day of training camp in September. His therapist bends his ankle another direction and tells Suter to slow down. Remember that rehab can feel frustrating if you look too far ahead without appreciating the week-by-week progresses made, Suter is told. Don’t forget, he’s reminded, that it was only a few weeks ago that he couldn’t walk without a boot.

 

When he arrived, Boyd and foot specialist Fernando Peña were blunt.

 

“They’re like, ‘This is bad,’” Suter said. “They said this could be career-ending.”

Slow mo look at Suter's foot injury, not that Wild fans want to see it again

 

 

Still, Suter scoffed.

“I’m thinking, ‘Come on, guys, it’s my foot, it’s not going to be career-ending,’” Suter said. “‘Fine, you can tell people that if it makes you feel better, but it’s not going to end my career.’ 

 

He’s reminded that doctors and officials have told him to keep realistic goals and not worry about the start of training camp, that this was a serious injury he shouldn’t feel a need to rush back from.

 

By his own admission, Suter can be a bit controlling. “If you want things done right, you have to do them yourself,” he often says.

 

“When I hear that, I don’t really hear it,” Suter says. “I want to be ready for camp and I want to have the best year that I’ve ever had. So I basically just ignore it. I’ll be fine. I’m almost there — as soon as I can get rid of that little hitch I’ve got.”

The consummate team player...🙄

 I also saw there were a lot of "I" comments in Graff's interview with Sutter however, the article was about Suter and his progress.

 

There were comments there that are a concern that Suter is rushing back and could likely face some setbacks.  I also saw a lot of the Peter Forsberg mentality that he is committed to pushing past the pain of rehab and do whatever it takes to achieve his goals.

 

“How cool would that be to come back from this injury after people said I couldn’t and then to go on a run and win a Stanley Cup?” Suter says. “That would be the ultimate. Sometimes you’ve got to hit the bottom before you get up there, and maybe for me, this is it.”

Ryan should make a second opinion at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, MN. They have very professional specialists. Rehab, rehab and again rehab there too. I believe he is a brave warrior capable to restore his professional skills and strengthen his mentality also. Agreed, the rush is not a helper.

He's as delusional as Leipold is if he thinks the current team is anywhere near a Cup contender...

Who do you think sold Leipold on that idea?  Could it be...Mr. Kwik Trip himself?

Under the definition for "dumb jock" in the dictionary, you'll find a picture of Suter along with an audio clip of some of his quotes.

A setback for Suter is in the cards. He may join 11 in not being counted on healthy for large parts of this year.  May not be the worst thing for the team.  The lack of playing availability may serve to deplete an enormous ego. Just a self-centered jackass with his comments - no cup in his future. How does it help the Wild to have him on the ice for 32 minutes with a hitch and no strength?

I would agree.  I wasn't bothered in the slightest by Suter's absence in the playoffs.  It didn't matter anyways IMO.  We were not going to win that series against the Jets with him or without him.  If Suter's foolishness with his rehab ends up causing a setback I won't be surprised nor will I be all that disappointed.

While frustrated with Suter's off ice antics and power trip personna,  I have to disagree with the point that Suter wasn't missed in the playoffs.   Maybe not on the PP, but after the Jets series, I came to the conclusion that Brodin does not have top D pairing ability.  I would argue Suter does....although IMO, not top 10 in the NHL

Yet even if Suter was there...were we going to win with a team that couldn't score?  Nope...or are you going to tell me Suter's scoring will carry the team past Winnipeg?

If Suter (or Parise) ever goes on the forever LTIR, ala Pronger or Hossa, we can just trade him to Phoenix with a couple of bum prospects for a bag potatoes and a slightly worse draft pick.

No, you're right, Suter couldn't make up for the no show Wild forwards.  But clearly, while Seeler was alright, the rest of the left side D (Brodin and Soucy) struggled (to put it mildly).

I think a lot of these observations we are making here just goes to show that the Wild aren't built for the Playoffs. Every team knows you just have to be a little physical with them and they turtle.

 

Also, is it me, or are the Wild constantly running into the "hot goaltender" more than any other team in the Playoffs? Or is it that their anemic offense makes any goaltender they run into "the hot goaltender"?

Not yet.

I think the second one is an answer. Plus we are missing a really "hot our own goaltender" for years/decades too. Probably, once  we had a duo hot goaltenders one playoffs season to reach us to the Western Conference finals. Roloson played 11 games and Fernandez 9 games during that playoffs success then, practically evenly distributed those games . 

 

Here is an interesting link from Wikipedia about our Wild team of 2002-2003 season. Please, check to the right side of the page how many rotating captains we had during that season. One Russian player -Sergei Zholtok was also a captain for a month too, but mainly Brad Bombardir was a captain for 5 months (Oct-Nov; Feb-Apr.).

I think you may be onto something with this, the NHL's boneyard franchise...

Meh, the Wild make opposing goaltenders look great with their willingness to settle for perimeter shots with little or no traffic near the goalie.  The Wild are unwilling to pay the physical price to go to the high traffic areas on the ice.
