Proof that Toews was injured during the playoffs
 
The speculation had been a left wrist or hand injury for Toews, and this picture directly after winning the Western Conference Finals establishes credibility for that claim. Toews was not shooting like he did during the regular season. Your bottom hand on the stick is critical in controlling the puck and shooting, and this affected Toews ability to score in the playoffs. He never made a fuss about it and that is what you expect from the best captain in the NHL.

This proves what exactly??

Captain Serious 19 07-14-2013 06:36 PM

His left hand is beyond swollen.

I wrote a long post on Committed Indian about 19's injury.

I was at game 5 and I have played hockey, and so does my best bud that was with me.

No way would I believe someone telling me 19 was "ok" and "just fine".

I agree with best Capt in NHL and he won't talk about it. In OT in GAme 5 after he want to the locker-room, he dropped his stick 4 times in the next 2 shifts, I watched it on tivo the next day to make sure I counted right at the game. I was off by one lol.

Anyway, yeah 19 was hurt. He had several plays a hockey player that is 100% healthy would do, and he didn't even try. He shot one where he HAD to shoot it and we both laughed saying we could shoot it harder, and we stink. Then we got sad after he proved to us he was messed up.

I saw him with ice on a wrist, as others have reported.

Doesn't matter now, but a hand problem is a major deal to a hockey player. Thanks for posting this. Great pic and explains a lot to me anyway.
Thanks again.

I seem to remember CBC showing him icing/holding his wrist for a good portion of time during one or two games while on the bench

I too was at game 5 with my brother and we thought the same thing. It is not fair for people on this website to bash Toews for his low goal total in the playoffs while he does everything in his power to help his team win. He did lead his team in assists I believe in the playoffs. Look for Toews to get 10 goals and 30 points next playoffs

tdfxman 07-14-2013 06:48 PM

They had that too, cool.

The point to me is as he ramped up his PPG in each of the last 4 years, he wasn't getting it done in this playoff. I am kinda happy he was hurt in that it explains a lot. A lot.

Can't wait for playoff's next year, if the world doesn't blow up first, and see what 19 can do healthy.

But his leadership is only building and can't get hurt. He is already at the "Messier" level and he is only in his mid 20's. Hint, there isn't any levels above that.

That's a lot of goals and points to get in the 16 games it will take them to win the damn thing.

I believe he'll shortly reach the level above "Messier", and it will be called the "Toews level".

I thought we already had video of Zetterberg getting his wrist with his stick.

Bubba88 07-15-2013 06:43 AM

it was started by Parise and Z finished it...

digdug41982 07-15-2013 12:39 PM

Definitely, a lot of us speculated wrist, especially with the quality of his draws and shooting going down quite a bit. He just kept on going and still won many key draws and scored a few key goals. Some people were born to do something and some work themselves into doing what they want to do. Toews exemplifies both at the absolute highest level, a sight to behold.

bigdinkel 07-15-2013 01:11 PM

I'm surprised nobody has mentioned Derrick Rose yet..lol

We're talking about players playing through injury, not sitting when healthy.

Hawkman 07-15-2013 02:12 PM

When a Midwestern team beats an East Coast team, it's always because the Midwestern team was 100% healthy and the East Coast team was 100% injured. Read any MB Forum besides this one. Don't you guys know how sports works? :sarcasm: ;)

Bubba88 07-15-2013 02:47 PM

East coast is never healthy and is still doing this good

If they had it where we could recommend posts etc, this would be mine. Great post.

I'd be more surprised if he wasn't injured. Freaking everybody's nursing an injury that would sideline an NBA player by the time the SCF starts.

I like where your head is at- four straight sweeps to win the cup! I have a feeling that Toews could get 30pts if they pulled that off!!

:)

Ha!

I found it hilarious when Udonis Haslem let the media know after the nba finals that he played with a torn meniscus...BFD.
