    Think us hoping he'd be in against the Pens was pretty hopeful. Still guessing Dallas or if not, travels with the team to Buffalo.

    I think they were always going to take advantage of the light schedule and have him skip the pens game no matter what.

    No need to push this guy. We need him for the play off run. Might as well sit him out until next game.

    I would rather he's 100 percent when he comes back.

    The Leafs are firmly entrenched in 3rd in the division. May want to give him a couple games before the regular season is out to get his feet back under him. But other than that, no need whatsoever to rush him unless he is more than 100%.

    I have a c 3/4 separated shoulder.

    He needs to get the surgery in the summer time. Or this will keep re occurring.

    I don't know if the Leafs are being over cautious or not .but the fact that he's missed this much time over a nothing play is very concerning. Is he that fragile ? Whats gonna happen the first time he takes a big hit?

    Sometimes the worst ones are the ones that come out of nowhere. You can't brace and you aren't able to move your body to a position better able to absorb the impact.

    Orientation of the hit is most of the time worse than the force of it. I nearly tore my ACL by simply falling on me knee from a soft tackle in soccer. I've always completely stood my ground against 3 straight side tackles to the ankle/knee and came out unscathed. Matthews injuries seemed unorthodox compared to taking big hits.

    He got sandwiched on both shoulders by 2 guys...the human body is not meant to be crushed that way...your ribs could collapse a bit as a buffer being sandwiched from the chest and back, but not from the 2 sides at the shoulders.

    Yep, four for this one.
    Wifes brother and family are coming in from Montreal for it, my daughter and I are taking her uncle and cousin.
    Hopefully by games end my 7 year old nephew will throw his Price shirt away and ask his uncle to get him a Matthews jersey!

    I really hate comments like this.

    I’ve played hockey and soccer all my life, gotten rocked in both sports and bounced back up no problem, it’s been a couple of much lighter impacts where I’ve got hit in the perfect (wrong) spot where I’ve broken bones and ruptured tendons.

    Point is, you can’t just look at something like this and assume it was nothing because it wasn’t a bone crushing Scott Stevens type hit, then label that player as injury prone or “fragile”.

    I think he is a great player. My concern is he is so young and the amount of times he's been injured in less than 2 seasons. Getting a tad worried about a Mr glass situation.

    He's still young enough to be persuaded to join the good guys! Hopefully Matthews' is back for that one - that would really help your case :D

    I don't think there is anything to worry about just yet. Last season he played all 82 games and all 6 playoff games, did he not? This season he has run into a couple of injuries, it happens. No player in a 20 year career will play every single game. And the injuries this season don't seem to be that serious. He is not missing months at a time.

    To honest, I'd rest him the next 3 games after tonight, and then see where he's at. If he isn't playing by the 20th then I'll start to be worried.

    He'll play when he's ready to play. Why would he need more rest? He should be extremely rested.

    Why? What if they’re giving him extra extra extra rest?
