"No, I'm not going to talk about our discussion," Patrick said, saying Palffy cited only "personal reasons." Palffy told Patrick of his decision Tuesday morning. They agreed not to announce it until Wednesday because Patrick hoped Palffy would reconsider.
The shoulder injury led to his decision to retire, he told the Sport daily, a Slovak newspaper.
"I have talked to my doctor and he did not recommend a third operation," Palffy told the newspaper.
On pregame, Stan was talking to EJ and asked him if he was surprised at how things went. EJ said yes, and listed all the players that they missed out on for the full season: "Mario retired, Thibault got hurt, Palffy quit."
Further confirmation that Palffy wasn't hurt or me reading too much into how things are worded? You decide.

There is a good chance that, at the time, Edzo didn't know exactly why because Pallfy didn't want/need to divulge that information to him. If it's personal - it's personal. For a guy that up until that point in his career, was thought to be a stand-up guy, then why the erratic change of behavior? An injury wouldn't just cause him to bolt. There was obviously something more that didn't come out in the heat of the moment.
The fact that 5+ years later, someone who has way more information in Seth from the PG, says that the off-the-books record is something very personal makes more sense than what Edzo said in the heat of the moment after it just happened.
Edzo said Palffy didn't want to be in Pitt in an interview about a classic Pens game that was shown about 2 months ago. Not right after it happened and not out of anger or spite.
