Then what, two days ago, Slats is saying he might be on a plane to Europe and then today he's at Whale practice but he's still not cleared for contact and he's also not in game shape. Geez.
It didn't seem to be an issue until the season was over for Staal. At that point all the players go their seperate ways and the beat reporters go on vacation. How were we supposed to find out?

You expect Torts to call the press and let them know he's been talking to Staal and he's suffering from potential PCS? Keep dreaming.
