If I understood Carolina radio correctly, the GMs passed a policy that in-game injuries didn't have to be made public other than "will return" or "not expected to return." I sensed from (post-game guest) John Forslund's description that terms like "lower body injury" are a thing of the past, but he and the other voice said that speculation by broadcasters would increase because of the new rule. He said it had to do with competitive in-game advantage among the teams.

Well that's certainly interesting, and thanks for the Brindy update.

Well, you are welcome. And here is the most recent update:

RALEIGH - The Carolina Hurricanes put a strong line on the ice Sunday at the RBC Center -- Rod Brind'Amour, Ray Whitney and Tuomo Ruutu.
Unfortunately for the Canes, that was four hours before the exhibition game against the Philadelphia Flyers.

Turns out, the Hurricanes didn't need the injured threesome. Carolina topped the Flyers 1-0 for their first exhibition win on Sergei Samsonov's first-period goal and strong play by goaltender Michael Leighton.

For Brind'Amour, sitting out games has been frustrating, irritating. He often seems like a Kentucky thoroughbred behind a starting gate, filled with anxious intensity.

Brind'Amour spent month after month rebuilding his left knee after the severe injury last season that required reconstructive surgery. Working out at the Athletic Performance Center in North Raleigh. Leading the informal workouts at the RecZone.

Then, days before training camp began, he needed more surgery to repair a cartilage tear.

James Mirtle had a blog on that topic yesterday:

Quote:
At their June meeting, the National Hockey League's 30 Club General Managers voted to modify the policy pertaining to the disclosure of player injury information. The new policy, which takes effect immediately:

Clubs no longer are required to disclose the specific nature of player injuries. Clubs are, however, required to disclose that a player is expected to miss a game due to injury, or will not return to a game following an injury. Clubs are prohibited from providing untruthful information about the nature of a player injury or otherwise misrepresenting a player’s condition.

Thanks again, MSE, as always, you are a wealth of information. I didn't realize there was a second surgery. Poor Brindy, hopefully he'll be playing by opening night.

The writer ends his blog with "Be prepared for a whole bunch of upper- and lower-body descriptions." So, the policy isn't so much for the in-game injury, but rather than the next game following the injury. As the writer mentions, the info will manage to be made public through other means, possibly from the player himself.

LOL, yeah, I think this is the case for you and half the other people on this board. So much for those who were calling for him to immediately be thrown in on the top line. So much for "he lit it up in juniors, they know the game, what more is there to learn, just go out and play" philosophy.

We can either put him on the Flyers this year and let him struggle through learning to play at this level, let him have a few ups to go along with many downs, let him develope self-doubt (from NOT living up to his own unrealisitc expectations of a rookie and also the fans booing him, you just know it would happen in Philly) and take a chance of destroying all his confidence and hence set him back in his development OR we could let him have a year to develope in the AHL, call him up for occasional appearances during the season and let him ease his way into the pro game while developing confidence against slightly lesser competition.

There is no need to rush this kid. He maybe could hold his own in the NHL and not be a liability but it certainly doesn't look like he's ready to step on the ice and compete for the ROY award. We dont "NEED" him on the Flyers this year especially if he's not ready. I would personally much rather he spend a full year in the AHL than for us to rush him and have him turn into another Justin Williams where we get frustrated with him and he needs a change of scenery.
