If Staal wants to open up to the media about it, that's fine, but it's not up to another player to do it for him.
This nails it far more than the "don't let people know about his eye injury" reasoning. You don't talk about a player's own decision to play or not play when it was made behind closed doors. Obviously McD didn't have nefarious intentions, nor was it egregious enough to make a big deal out of it, and Torts didn't.
McD goofed by talking about another player's injury with the media and was mildly chastised for it. End of story, world keeps on spinning.
