According to TSN.ca, the injury Dany Heatley suffered last night against the Red Wings in an awkward collision was a separated shoulder, meaning the All-Star winger could be out up to 4-6 weeks. Shit.
Patrick Eaves is almost back from his separated shoulder, more than seven weeks after it happened. These injuries are all so different and unpredictable that it's difficult to draw parallels between two instances, or to offer a concrete timeline. Hopefully it's shorter rather than longer, though.
