Really?
I couldn't help but laugh when I visualized it, but I don't really have any problem with it. Good for Therrien for having won his players' trust when it comes to confiding in him, and good for Gionta for caring enough about his career and/or team.

Unfortunately, Gionta's best years are past him (as a player, it's often something that's very tough to cope with and accept), and I hope the organization realizes he's no longer a top-six forward at this point in his career. I do hope he can recover from this injury and come back healthy, as he can probably still be a serviceable 3rd line player next season (I'll be OK with that as long as he gets no PP time). However, to be honest, I think he's an easily replaceable player (and at a much more cap-friendly rate) in the event that he can't fully recover from this.
