Rem Murray's comeback attempt
Al Strachan is at the Detroit Red Wings training camp, and today he's penned a story about former Edmonton Oiler Rem Murray — last seen with the Nashville Predators — and his struggles with a rare disorder.
"Fortunately enough," he said, "a doctor on call was the leading expert in movement disorders. He diagnosed me with what's called cervical dystonia."I knew Murray had had injury problems last season, but this was one of the lockout stories I missed completely. Best of luck to him.
But a diagnosis is not a cure. The doctors knew what was wrong with Murray, but they didn't know what to do about it.
The situation worsened until his head slumped over to the left and rested on his shoulder.
