So that’s AWFUL news about Marc Staal.
What’s the news? I heard he isn’t playing tonight, but is there more?
Just that it’s day to day and he wakes up each day and takes it from there. Just sounds generally bad.
Also bad because with Eminger in the lineup we essentially only have 5 Defenseman.
Concussion? Or vision?
How can we see each other’s picks in the PO contest?
Go to the boneheads contest standings and click somebody’s name. I’d link you but I’m on my phone
Good afternoon, Carp!
I quit my job so now I can stay here alllllll day. REFRESH REFRESH REFRESH!
ATTA GIRL, SALLY!!!!
Out of the four brothers, Marc got the short end of the injury stick.
Now he’s out there on a VisionQuest.
Thumbs up, Nanny.
These are the league standings I was talking about Ex3: http://playoffschallenge.nhl.com/playoff_challenge/leagues/5951?locale=en&page=1
You can click the names to see the picks
I like how increasingly unrelated the “Related Posts” up there are getting.
Today I’ve seen “McCabe coming? Stepan not suspended.” and “Mike Rupp on making his Rangers debut in Newark tonight.”
LW…still all American there?
The difference between me and you, LW ….
We could definitely use more j(g)ibberish around here.
Seriously, Sally? You quit? Did you go out in a blaze of glory calling your boss and his family all sorts of names?
Hope you find something soon, if you’re looking. Or you can come to NY and assist me. The pay sucks, but the job is fun (sometimes).
Doubt it’s concussion, Rob … he probably wouldn’t be skating. Might not be flying. Could be completely wrong about it, though.
I think it’s vision. Speculation.
It doesn’t sound good for Marc Staal. You have to wonder if his career is in jeopardy. I’m speculating here, but it doesn’t sound like this is a vision thing – it sounds more like post-concussion syndrome (again). He took a hard hit in game 3.
I really think the NHL needs to look at expanding the ice surface. They players are bigger and faster, the equipment is definitely harder (more plastic), and with less room out there, it’s a recipe for disaster.
I’ll take that job, Carp. Can I hold the camera when you do the Video “Keys to the Game”
Sally’s gonna walk right bank into her office tomorrow as if it never happened? “What quit? That? Joking!”
but tomorrow’s Saturday…no one will be there
have officially announced start time for Sunday’s game?
Slight delay changing my pic back, since Gravatar doesn’t seem to like iOS.
As my impersonator/stalker friend with the remarkably similar screen name showed up again yesterday, I’ll ensure my pic remains suitably distinct, as if my worthless, non-credible non-opinions weren’t enough to tell.
Our D needs to be more ‘offensive’ in DC – only 3 pts in 4 games
Please do not back into zone and give them blue line and then some every rush down the ice.
Staal out indefinitely with speculation.
Time to get my game face on, with feed bag!
Bawitdaba da bang a dang diggy diggy diggy said the boogy said up jump the boogy
Do Leaves fans now hate Phanuef as much as we do?
I would never confuse you with that idiot, LW.
If his pupil is still dilated and cannot really constrict, then seeing out of that eye is going to become difficult. He probably has traumatic mydriasis – usually the pupil needs to be able to constrict (get smaller) to adjust how much light gets in and out and also it tends to do that as objects get closer to the eye. So Staal has the difficult problems of photosensitivity and worse things probably get blurry as they get closer. Not sure why he would not have had a problem with it until 2 days after the game though. Also its due to disruption of some of the muscles of the iris sphincter (Peter said sphincter), and sometimes it completely reverts to normal, and sometimes it doesn’t. Can take months to know sometimes.
Staal is out tonight.
This whole Staal thing is horrible and so unfortunate for him and the team. 2 of our best d-men Staal & Sauer may never be the same. This series would be a lot more winnable with them that’s for sure.
Whatever happens this year we must find a tough d-man. Tired of seeing other teams take liberties in front of Hank. Hopefully that will be McIlrath but time will tell.
Wow, Peter. That’s an awesome post.
Thank you. I did not know that. This site is very friendly and informative.
One troll = The other troll….
notice how they show up when someone mentions sphincter
I think that CHARP thing is live now
