Devs` Mogilny takin' his time- New York Post
By MARK EVERSON
September 24, 2005 -- His 43 goals in 2000-01 are the most by a Devil since 1990-91, and they burst the salary cap to bring him back last month. The Devils are counting on Alexander Mogilny to score this season, but he's counting on his twice-repaired hip to annoy him forever.
"I'm going to have discomfort for the rest of my life," the 36-year-old right wing told The Post yesterday.
"Two surgeries are two too many. There are going to be repercussions. I just have to take care of myself for the rest of my life," Mogilny said.
The man who led the league with 76 goals in 1992-93 with Buffalo underwent two operations during the lockout to repair his hip and remove calcium deposits and arthritis. An unrestricted free agent from Toronto, who signed him that way from New Jersey on July 3, 2001, he returned to the Devils for a $3.5 million salary on Aug. 16.
He didn't skate in the team's intrasquad scrimmage last week, with Darren Langdon the only vets excused, as Larry Robinson noted it was silly to push him in his return from surgeries. He wasn't sure whether he'll play in the Devils' exhibition opener tomorrow night against the Islanders at the Meadowlands, but he says he's ready.
"I'm feeling better. I'm slowly getting back. It's tough not to play a game in more than a year," Mogilny said.
Although he remains a marvelously agile skater, speedy enough, he admitted that he isn't as fast as he once was. But he insists that isn't because of the hip injury, suffered Nov. 20, 2003, or the surgeries.
"No," he said of whether he's as fast as before. "Because I'm older.
"But I feel pretty good. I feel strong on my feet and my leg feels good. So far, everything is good."
It's just likely to be a continual concern.
