I don’t have a clue what we’re going to hear about the Rangers injuries today, or if we’re going to hear anything at all.
Here’s my guess, though.
If we hear anything—and by we, I mean you—it will be very good news or very, very bad news.
And if we hear nothing, it will be bad news.
To clarify: If, say, Dan Girardi and/or Ryan McDonagh are going to be OK, maybe miss a couple of games, maybe day-to-day, I think the team will tell us that.
If we get a “no comment” on the injuries, start worrying. And that goes for Rick Nash too, maybe to a worse degree. If he’s not skating and there’s no update, start assuming the worst. I think that’s fair.
I also think that if it becomes apparent that a player will be on the shelf for a long time, as with Darroll Powe, the team will say that, which is why I said that if we hear anything, it still could be very, very bad news.
I suspect Michael Del Zotto (guessing: hip) and Arron Asham (back spasms) will skate today at 11.
I will be unable to attend the practice—if I knew there will actually be news announced I might go—so keep your eyes peeled on the widget over there——————> for updates from our friends.
