Does anyone remember a player with groin issues NOT getting treatment after a week off the ice? I'm sorry but unless Nash's groin muscle completely detached from the bone, then he would be at the training facility getting bioelectric therapy treatment, ice, compression, light stretching, etc.
Nothing leads us to believe a groin injury for him was that severe, nothing on the ice indicated that unless it occurred in practice. (And we would have heard it from the beat writers).
All signs point to a concussion now, and the reason he was not at that Rangers function was probably because he was seeing a specialist or staying away from the lights and action. It's just odd to me that he would have played games, went to practice, and 'tested' it in warmups. Extremely confusing.
The only other explanation to me is he's got a broken bone somewhere, stress fracture - something that just needs flat out rest and no treatment. Still find it odd and negligent to certain degree that the Rangers would let him go out in warmups to test a concussion, and play one of those games.
