Rangers Knees Stay Strong
Richter came back way before he was scheduled to play, and has put a great performance in the pre-season and his first two games. Unfortunately, a total of 3 goals already have passed Richter, deflected off the legs/skates of Malakhov, Karpa, and Malakhov again.
Kloucek is also way ahead of schedule. He is scheduled to play in mid-November, yet he could be just as ready to play on the 19th or 20th of October. Will he make a great comeback from his injury? Most likely since there is a high possibility for him to be one of the toughest defensemen in the league.
