Burrows out actually clarified the thinking on Raymond. Maybe the Rome resigning will inform the fanbase, too.
Fire Gillis, are you kidding me.
As someone else said, in the play-offs many players play through an injury.

I doubt very much in this day and age, that the medical staff would allow this if they believed that the player was going to hurt themselves in the long term, by playing in the play-offs.
Years ago this was the norm, but today the medical staff plays a more prominent role.
Yes even they make mistakes, but this is the exception rather than the rule.
There is just too much at stake, on both sides.
