Various things have made me wonder lately, if it mightn't be a good idea to have a thread dedicated to injuries & illnesses? A place to easily get updates on skaters' conditions, and keeping up with who's injured, recuperating &c? The info is otherwise spread all over the forum, on a dozen different threads, and it can be difficult to keep track.

So, starting off; Plushy's recently had surgery, which renders his participation in the NRW Trophy highly doubtful.
