Zednik's return

"He really came as close to dying as one could. Some of that gets lost after the event, once you know he's all right. There were a number of grave threats to his life. He lost a tremendous amount of blood ... He could have died at any moment."
A good piece by the Miami Herald's George Richards.

The problem for Zednik this season is that, on every stop Florida makes, he's going to be front and centre, forced to relive the moment again and again. And he doesn't exactly sound up to it.

"I don't want to think about it. I want to play hockey. I don't want what happened in my mind."

I'm not sure how you avoid that, other than to hide him from the media entirely.

Zednik vis not the same player after the elbow hits he received right on his face when he was playing for Montreal against the Bruins en '04 playoff, so now i can't imagine witch kind of hockey he'll play...

And Olli Jokinen wasn't same player after his skate cut Zednik's throat. Bad accident and not anybody's fault but it seems like Jokinen was really shaken up for the rest of the season.
