Any year end meetings/pressers been announced?

Postby Penspal on Thu May 15, 2014 9:26 am

Has anyone heard when this year's team wrap-up is scheduled? The exit interview, year end presser, etc?

Obviously, lots of tough questions to be asked. I'm waiting to hear all secrets revealed (ie. who was playing hurt & what the injuries were).

Jussi Jokinen had a right wrist injury through the playoffs but feels it will heal with rest in the coming weeks. #Penguins


No apparent injuries to Sid ?

Rossi tweeted shortly after game 7 that Sid told him he was perfectly healthy.

Sid just doesn't get it. If I'm him, I'm telling people I had a sports hernia, crabs, groin pull, heart murmur and irritable bowel syndrome. You do not want people thinking that at your healthiest, you are worthless.

Part of the issue with Sid was that he had to have been physically drained. This was his first full season since before his concussion. Add to that the fact that he played in the Olympics.

Jussi also has hurt his wrist, but still lead the team in goals.

Bennett claimed to be "useless" in his 6 games vs. Rags due to his wrist.

Jokinen says his injury won't require surgery. Bennett's will. There's obviously a difference in injury and severity. Not all injuries are equal.

Or maybe he's just classy and owns up to his shortcomings. Why make excuses?

Maybe you don't get it. Sid took responsibility for his poor performance. If he said his ankle hurt, he'd have to deal with all the "excuses" people. Wouldn't surprise me in the least if it comes out in a few weeks that he was indeed hurt. Sid isn't the kind of guy to cry foul the day of the loss.

Bennett's wrist issues are now officially "chronic", and make me worry he will never be a major contributor. Whatever is wrong, the surgeries aren't fixing it for long. Every time they go in there, they make more scar tissue, and if you haven't noticed, wrists are important for a hockey player.

Given the way players have tried to thump his head or the time the Ottawa Sun writer suggested "testing" his ankle, if I had an injury I'd be reluctant to say anything. I don't think a player worth anything is going to make up some phantom injury as an excuse to let themselves off the hook.

He's injured both, one has completely healed, this one never properly healed and was whacked pretty much the first couple shifts he took. I remember him shaking it... Not that your wrong, but it was noted that the two issues/injuries are not related.

Is this the third or fourth time Bennett's had to have wrist surgery?

I don't think he was hurt. An injury would explain the drop in his physical game, but not in his mental game. He looked like a guy who was totally fatigued to me.

The comments from the players today are encouraging. They sound United that they need to get better but all have said the players we have are a good group. Sound like they are all just sick of Bylsma.

Stempniak said he would come back if there's interest. Goc seemed to imply that too.
