    People who didn't see he was injured has never seen a healthy Broberg play, so their opinions is automatically disregarded.

    That actually quite true. Most of the posters who were making those comments have never watched him play more than a couple games in his career. A few were also posters that were caught lying about watching him play every game at last years WJHC.

    Why wouldn't they? He's our top prospect and was on our front door.

    They might not be allowed to during the tournament even if he is right at our front door.

    Not sure how one could not see that he was injured. His explosive speed is his calling card and it was lacking. Him being named team captain is proof enough that he is far from junk. It is just too bad for him and us that we couldn't see him play in his full form.

    Yeah that's what I mean. If you've never seen him play you wouldn't have seen what his strengths are with your own eyes, and then it's easy to sit on hfboards are spew feces.

    Search under the rocks for conspiracy! McDavid's injury was very specific, severe and atypical of more 'traditional' hockey injuries. Well worth exploring specialized opinions given this reality. Broberg's injuries clearly no where near as severe and had direct access to Sweden's medical and the Oilers given the tournament being held in their backyard. Not sure what you're smelling but hope it's not tinfoil burning. Pragmatic, professional care and advise for a million dollar asset and Swedish team captain.

    What conspiracy? Weve been one of the more injured teams for awhile, I don't think I'm trying to insinuate some huge tinfoil hat scheme here... just suggesting that perhaps we dont have the best doctors.

    For decades we, as a hockey team, couldn't hire good Hockey people. Why in the world is it ludicrous to suggest the same people (hockey people I might add) that hired people who couldn't run a hockey team perhaps also hired a doctor that's not that great?

    We're talking about the same people that hired Tamby, Chia, Mact, Eakins, etc...

    To be frank this post seems like complaining for the sake of complaining.

    McDavid and Broberg's injuries are apples and bananas. We know - with benefit of a 'corporate' video production how severe McDavid's injury was and that it required significant specialized opinions from multiple medical experts. This is a highly suspect comparison that you've used to make a leap into significant speculation into core medical personnel who are highly regulated as a profession. Hockey operation personnel are not subject to either the education rigour or certification standards of medical professionals. Just because the organization failed massively on the operation side does not equate causation that their medical professionals are somehow deficient in their care and treatment of the millionaire workforce.

    Man oh man.
    With injuries like that I'm really mad they kept playing him.
    Shit like that is how you end up constantly injured thru your career like. Karlsson or Klefbom

    You can tell how much he wanted to represent his nation with how crushed he was when they got eliminated but man... He needed someone in his corner thinking about his future

    The idea was that he did not play the round robin apparently, but he insisted. Good show of character right there imo. That is the dedication you want from players.

    That means that the doctors cleared him to play. It most probably cost him a couple of weeks of regular SHL games, but obviously if there would have been any risk of long term effects they would not have allowed him to play. I trust the team docs for team Sweden were right on top of that, they normally are and have had no issues stopping players before. Broberg would not have been an exception. Considering the opposition I think management persuaded him not to play vs Austria since with all do respect that was a given (big) win.

    Honestly, considering Broberg's character with respect to his career so far I have no doubt he would have sat out if it was requested of him. He said early on that he would do what Holland/EDM wanted him to do after the draft and again this season, when Holland said it was up to him to decide, only then did he chose to play in the SHL.

    Also worth noting, which has been lost in many reports about Broberg's performance in the WJHC (I think by myself at some point as well), is that he was not even healthy for the very first game, in which he was very good imo. It got worse later on, but already from the get go he had his leg injury.

    Dudes a warrior. You can only hope the doctors didn't think it was going to get worse by letting him continue to play, and you love to see that heart.

    Kids gonna be a gamer for the franchise in a year or two.
