Heard this on Dave and Chuck the Freak this morning. Apparently Draper felt something pop during practice yesterday and is seeing a hernia specialist. Sounds like he'll need surgery and could miss quite a bit of time. This, along with the success of our fourth line so far, could mean Draper might have a hard time seeing any playing time for a few months. I wouldn't be overly surprised if he doesn't see any major playing time until after the All Star break so that he can get into a rhythm and win faceoffs in the playoffs for us.
