USA Today had a good little interview with Bryan Berard earlier in the day:
What you went though seven years ago when you missed a full season with the eye injury, did it make your back problems any easier to deal with?I sort of intimated this before, but after all he's gone through, I'm rooting for the guy. Berard's on the shelf already with a groin issue, although we haven't yet heard how serious it is.
Berard: It was probably a little tougher, to be honest. Both discs could have been fixed with the first operation and I probably could have had a full year last year. Sometimes I've had some tough luck, but I love this game of hockey. That's why I keep coming back. I just love playing the game.
