all I can say is wow
Assuming Seids is good to go health-wise, am I the only one that is somewhat concerned about a guy coming off an injury jumping into a do-or-die game without having seen game action in months? You always hear guys saying it takes a little time to adjust to the pace of a live game or getting in "game shape". As much as I love Seids and think it would be a remarkable story to see him in the lineup, part of me worries that he might get burned because he's not used to playing at a high intensity. If this was earlier in the series I wouldn't be as worried but in a winner take all......I dunno.
Don't see why that statement is so ridiculous. I bet you Seidenberg would agree with it. We see guys all the time play though injuries in the postseason that they know are going to need surgery and require them to miss regular season games (Nathan Horton being a recent example). And this isn't even one of those cases.
I don't think I'd be for Seids playing tomorrow if he was cleared. No defenseman should
just be thrown into game 7 having no prior experience in said series, especially against a speed team like the Habs.
Seids or Bart? Easy choice for me no matter how long he has been off.
It's a minority opinion but no, you're not the only one. I covered that one what seems like ages ago in this thread. Seidenberg skating with no contact/light contact is step 8 in about a 15 step process for what you want to optimally recover/rehab from this injury.
And obviously not gonna happen.
I agree that any player would say they are good to go. I find it ridiculous because people make it sound like its no big deal. It is a big deal if he reinjures . You are basicly asking a the guy to go through another grueling rehab process. I just dont see it as a smart move
No way I would play seids tonight. MAYBE the SCF maybe
No way Seids plays tonight.
I'm obsessively checking this thread every time it gets bumped to see what his status is.
acl injuries are freak injuries in hockey. the only way he plays if he looks like he's strong on his skates so I wouldn't worry too much about reinjuring unless another freak thing happens
I agree with you on that much for sure. Even if he was ready, you don't throw him into the fire tonight, that's for damn sure.
Clode presser, regarding Seidenberg returning for G7: "Uh..I don't think so. I'd be very surprised."
So you're saying there's a chance!
They should let him take the warmup.
Let him take a line rush centering Lucic and Iginla? I like it.
agreed, gamesmanship. Is that allowed??
Happens almost every playoff game. Watch for #38 tonight in warms. Hopefully it's no the last time he pulls on the Jersey...
We missed you Seids. Get better soon. Have a good summer and be ready for a long run next year.
Cam Neely just said that Seidenberg would probably have returned next round toward the end of the series.
That's def not gamesmanship either. He was coming back.
well thankfully he will be 100% when training camp starts
I would have been more shocked if Seids didn't return if the B's had moved on to the next round.
Cam Neely also said there were no injuries to Chara and Krejci.
Unless compound fractures are now not considered an injury, makes you wonder whether Seids was actually going to play...or not. Personally, the loss to Habs aside I'm glad that decision was taken out of their hands.
