I’m getting an upper-body injury (headache) over all these idiot coaches and their injury speak.
This was Pittsburgh’s Dan Bylsma on Jordan Staal’s injury:
“We’re undisclosed with the injury.”
We’re undisclosed with the injury? What are you inventing a new language here?
Isn’t he pretty much saying to his fans, “We’re not only lying to you, but we’re lying right to your face”?
At least John Tortorella has the decency (decency?) to say, “I’m not going to tell you” rather than make up or misuse words in the language with which to lie.
Anyway, if the Canadiens want to target Staal, it’s pretty obvious what the injury is, and they can easily confirm it by going to the video in about three seconds. Likewise, the Habs are going “lower-body injury” with Andrei Markov, when I could tell you what the injury is.
Meanwhile, the Flyers’ Paul Holmgren, of all people, was up front and honest about Simon Gagne’s foot injury, not calling it a lower-body injury, and saying that Gagne was going for an MRI. That’s how you treat your fans, folks.
OK, that was my rant for today. You guys know I hate this roundabout way of lying. So I said it.
Meant to point this out the other day, after Andrew Gross wrote about it. Blair Betts is doing a playoff blog on the Flyers site.
