Jacques never said they were faking from what I heard. I didn't see the Off the Record show though so not sure what was said there.
I still can't figure why Demers would mention Schneider and Tanguay's contract status when discussing their injuries. One has nothing to do with the other, instead of simply stating what he knows (that they have been injured and appear to be injured) he suggests they might be better off skipping a game to protect their UFA interests?
If he's not guilty or accusing them of being fakers, then he's certainly guilty of questioning their character or revealing a lot of his own with the suggestion that they are, or should consider skipping a do or die playoff game.
