UPDATE: Surgery schedule in post #56 (released May 19)
From what I hear & see, it looks like
Giroux, Jagr, and Hartnell are banged up & trying to play thru it.
My suspicions are:
Giroux> concussion or PCS?? (just looks out of it)
Hartnell >something upper body (0 drive or aggressiveness)
Anyone have any other info?

Yea I saw where Hartnell blocked a shot with his foot, but he looked somewhat off prior to that.... We need to see the Hartnell that the other team hates, gets in the goalies face, starts scrumbs etc..
i thought injuries werent an excuse. At least they havent been in past years around here.
anyway I am guessing this
Bryz=foot, brain lock
Grossman=feeling effects of the concussion
Injuries are only an excuse if the player is well liked, to the point where we just assume he (giroux) is injured and allow it to be acceptable. However, when someone has documented injuries (like recovering from two broken feet for example) he's a heartless stiff who chokes in the playoffs.
The good teams are also those who are less injured than the rest.
It's easy to talk a lot of macho crap about how the best teams play through it but sometimes bad luck with harsh injuries can just debilitate a team that with just one fewer injury or one fully healthy star might have been able to win.
I just prey that this organization has not been stupid enough to overlook the possibility of a concussion re: Couts and G, because of a blood thirsty desire to win a cup this year. That would be remarkably idiotic and short-sighted thinking.
