It's pretty good actually. He's going to be out 3-4 weeks and will need surgery. He has a torn meniscus in his knee which is the same injury Kevin St. Pierre suffered in December last season. Lance will be able to go in the playoffs, and there's a pretty good chance he will play few enough regular-season games that he won't qualify for veteran status next season.
``He'll feel a lot better,'' Komets trainer Shawn Dundon said. ``That will be a little bit of a relief. He'd have a lot of problems if he tried to play through it right now. He's not going to be as beat up going into the playoffs.''
