Wow, kind of eerie.

Russo's Rants

“Josh hasn’t been feeling great the last few days and we’ve asked to Josh to be honest with us and let us know when he doesn’t feel that he’s 100 percent,” Fletcher said. “He just feels a little bit off. What he’s going through right now, he’s dealing with some medications. There’s a lot of trial and error. Every situation is different. The doctors advised us of this a few weeks ago that eventually we will get to the right spot where the medication works and his body adapts to it.

“It’s not a one size fits all solution unfortunately. Every case is different, so we’re going to get there. We’re very optimistic about that, but right now, he feels a little off. I give him credit. It’s against a hockey player’s nature to come in and say he doesn’t feel he can do it. He feels down a little bit about it, but we really support him and I give him a lot of credit for coming forward and giving us this information. It’s in his best interest and our team’s best interest to do this.”

“It’s hard to predict the future,” Fletcher said. “But we’ve been told that any MS patient in the early stages after the diagnosis, there’s a lot of trial and error in terms of which medication works. Every case is different and we’ve been told it could take a little bit of time to get the right course of treatment. We’re very confident we’ll get there, but there could be some ups and downs along the way. He’s been battling through. He’s practicing today. He’s continuing to battle through, but we just have to do what’s in his interest and our team’s interest. The good thing is we have lots of depth. We have good players here, we have good players in Houston. We’re here to support Josh. He’s a great teammate and everybody in the room’s behind him.”
Back to Kuemper:

Why Kuemper and not Matt Hackett? Fletcher said, “He’s been the best goalie in the American league the last month. He deserves to be here.”
