    Do you have a source?

    Also, since we can only embed a certain number of Tweets, I've updated the spreadsheet with the information we have regarding injuries. The link is in the first post, and here

    Pierre McGuire said the same on the radio last night, heard it on Team 990 in Montreal
    Was told by people in the Pens management and trainers that Phil was not injured!
    This was by far his worst performance since being a Pens.

    Sully says Kessel injury "nothing significant"?? Does not pass the eye test.
    Is he calling Phil out? this is so strange....

    At least he isn't putting the blame on missing all those chances in the playoffs on his thumb :sarcasm:

    I'm inclined to believe JR

    Yes, Phil Kessel was hurt, but did it matter?

    Weird I saw nothing on Letang's obvious brain injury...

    I guess I was right about Phil. He should have sat the last week or two of the regular season to try and recover if possible. Oh well, I mean after all it was just a cup run.

    To the turd talking about Sprong, stop. Unless they trade him (which I think is possible) he plays next year for sure and I would never sub for Kessel unless he couldn't play at all. Simon would have been the more obvious sub.

    There's always next year!

    We all guessed at Geno’s injury, that one isn’t surprising. Then saying Kessel isn’t severely injured makes me think he just doesn’t need surgery. Curious what Brassard has, he was completely ineffective, makes sense something was holding him back.

    It was a groin injury as reported by Yohe at the time it occurred in the RS...at the time, I told people it wouldn’t heal fully in the two weeks he didn’t play...I’m assuming that’s what JR is referring to...those things can take many months of rest to heal up...

    The rumor was Brassard's was his groin.
    Only game he really looked ok was G5 vs WSH.

    Didn't they say that Brassard was a groin during the regular season?

    ETA: Beat to the punch.

    My theory on Phil during the season was that he was dealing with a rib injury. Towards the end of the season he took a hit to the torso and was visibly shaken up. Maybe it was healing and it got reinjured?

    Phil has never exactly been Sully's favorite person...

    Phil vs Sully has been an ongoing thing.
    I do hope it was injuries tho and not a player quitting on his coach.
    I remember Sully flew up to Toronto last summer(think it was) for a little one on one.

    I have to wonder whether HCMS went to management and said something like " Phil is injured and he needs rest but won't take it. I want to sit him." Management "it's up to how Phil feels". Think that's possible?

    Brassard was even better in G5 against Flyers, best Penguins player in that game. Also had a good game 6 in that series.

    Kessel absolutely was injured significantly, you don’t go from 90 point player and the best player for the Pens for the first half of the year to whatever the hell that was. Sully must just mean surgery wise. He might be pissed that Phil wanted to play through it and was soft and terrible in his effort to do so.

    Kessel wasn't the guy keeping Sprong out of the lineup. It was Sheary, who I think is as good as gone based on the "great nucleus but there will be changes" in addition to "Sprong will be a regular next year" comments.
