Andrew Gross at Ranger Rants has this quote from Tortorella on the Prospal injury...
“I don’t expect him for a little bit here,” Tortorella said. “We’re going about our business. It’s a player that adds enthusiasm to the locker room, he’s an important guy for us. But we can’t depend on that. That is such an iffy situation right we can’t depend on that, we need to move on. Not to disrespect Vinny but we need to understand that we need to be playing without him right now.”
...well that's not very encouraging.
#NYR have placed veteran forwards Chris Drury and Vinny Prospal on IR to reach 23-man roster limit
They also tweet that John Tortorella says that another player will be selected to wear an alternate captain's A in Prospal's absence.
...got to go with Gaborik.
