Mench Injured?

Not really, but it's something to monitor:

An MRI scan of Kevin Mench's right elbow revealed a loose body...

Assistant general manager Gord Ash confirmed the MRI results but said the team is not planning any course of treatment. As long as the loose body remains suspended in synovial fluid, Ash said, Mench will be able to play on.

"Most players have the same thing from normal wear and tear," Ash said. "The only time it can be a problem is if it lodges somewhere. That can cause a joint to lock up temporarily. We don't consider the problem major at this point."

My first instinct was for schadenfreude, but it does the team no favors to have Mench injured as well as sulking.
