Got it, thanks!
You don't don't think a thumb injury alone isn't enough to completely screw up your accuracy?
Krejci being completely healthy shouldve at least gotten some time on the top line. That still pisses me off.
Didnt see his thumb was still injured. My b
I thought he had gotten hurt against Carolina,why wasn’t he shooting in the finals.
Bruins seemed to have stocked up on Defenceman in case of injuries,think they should be doing the same with some extra forwards next season.
Not surprised to read this. There were times he was struggling to lift the puck, to which I noticed seemed to be when he'd pass it to Bergy or Pasta.
So the entire first line and DeBrusk were playing with injuries that aren't just minor, guess that makes sense why they could only score with a free zone entry / PP set up.
Their cycle game was completely neutered via injury, how shitty luck can be.
This. Noticed his shot didn’t have much zip, either.
That is unbelievable. Explains why he was lost out there most nights. I knew something happened to him in Toronto series- Kadri whacked him hard and crosschecked him in the chops area pretty hard as well. I never suspected a concussion- thought something may have been broken or fractured in the ribs possibly.
How in the heck did he get cleared to play? I also questioned Gryz coming back for game 7, but at least he sat out for a few games.
I'd like to know what grade Jake had. This is alarming to me that this kid played through that- so much could have happened to him out there the rest of the playoffs- getting another concussion on top of that one could have been career ending.
These guys are warriors despite what some post about them not wanting it enough and whining about them not hitting enough. I'd like to see any of them even skate or get off the couch with some of these injuries.
I'm so proud of this team.
He obviously passed LEAGUE protocol to play so maybe take it up with them before railing all over the medical staff
And people wanted this kid to sit out while he was still out there hitting and playing great defensively. Kid is a warrior.
Or maybe fans didn't learn to wait for all the details before freaking out.
Maybe ask the NHL since they are the ones who created the guidelines.
I'm betting he has a different injury, perhaps an eye injury, that he won't disclose
Warrior. True Bruin, inside and out. Best Captain this team has ever had, in my opinion.
It was definitely obvious to me. I remember yelling at the TV, telling Brad to just shoot the puck- now I feel awful. I feel actually terrible for cussing him out like that.
How was Gryz cleared by the team doctors for practice but the neuropsychologist refused to clear him for the games? I assume they use the same neuropsychologist?
You realize he passed his tests, they let him practice and something came back that forced him out?
Hey if you want to blame the Bruins doctors and essentially Mass General Hospital then go right ahead.
Perhaps they need to re-examine the protocol again.
Yes, I do, Ali. I do. I lived with my oldest daughter who suffered for several years from post concussion syndrome. Saw symptoms go away for a day or several only to come back full force. You never want to see someone get a concussion in the first place, but a second one top of the first one could have terrible lifelong consequences for anyone, not just an NHL player.
Did Jake not tell them he was suffering from symptoms after he was cleared? That could have also happened. Not saying he did, but maybe he tried to play through them. Like my daughter who's coach didn't see her get hit hard on the left side of the head- she ran for a mile and a half afterwards, suffering through symptoms and almost passing out from them- to try and make a varsity team. She had no clue she had a concussion, though, she thought she would be fine with some Tylenol after practice.
Oof.....Im no doctor but sounds like Bobby Carpenter all over again.
Hard not to feel really bad for him.
I'm sorry about your daughter but unless DeBrusk or the Bruins decide to share what other injury he was playing through, I'm not pointing fingers at the doctors or Jake.
If anything, I'm going after the league for turning a blind eye to all the hits to the head this post season.
