Injuries revealed?

Ok it's almost a week since the CUP and I've yet to hear about any of the injuries from the kings or the devils. Did it ever come out why Kovalchuk was off? But more importantly, are there any kings going into this short off season with anything serious?

Nothing from the Devils AFAIK aside from Kovalchuk's pretty serious back injury (which I believe was his own admission and not the team's).

Haven't heard a peep from the Kings - although I think you can safely assume that the guys in Vegas don't have anything serious.

That's good news. If their injuries don't require any medical procedures, the players will be ready for the season, assuming no work stoppage. I'm there there's a litany of strains and sprains. As long as nobody has to go under the knife, I'm happy.

Anyone else worried that Scuderi might suffer a concussion during the summer?

scuderi's concussion is definitely something to think about. Can't remember the dude cracking a smile during any of the celebrations...poor guy. That was quite the ultimate sacrifice.

This was probably because of the stitching in his lip. It's gotta hurt whenever he moves it.

I was glad to see he was in Vegas, if he was having issues he would likely be at home resting. You never know with concussions, however.

35 stitches to the face will do that. He also was applying an ice pack to his face when he was on the bench.

All of the Kings are severely impaired right now due to inebriation.

Scuderi doesn't smile because he is too much man.

Unfortunately for Quick, their voice boxes are not.

Did he ever apologize for his f-bombs the other day? I haven't heard anything.

I have to think that he's not concussed. Anyone who's had a concussion knows the lights and sounds of Vegas would SUCK when you are cocussed. Not to mention that he most likely flew there.

He hangs out with Gary Roberts?

I'm thinking Brown might be the one that was hurt and that the rumors (wasn't it a seperated shoulder) were about though seeing as he's at home with his family while the rest of the team is out in Vegas.

His mother, father and girlfriend live with him in LA. He probably just wants to relax before flying back to Slovenia and i think he isn't party guy.

But wait...I thought the ever reliable Matthew Barry said that Willie Mitchell was practically dead and playing on one leg

Didn't Luc mentioned something about injuries during some interview (I think during the rally/parade). Wasn't real specific, but I think he hinted that there were some players with injuries.

We'll probably never know the extent of the injuries of most of these players. I am sure most are banged up, but I'd be surprised if we hear anything about injuries.

Borwn having a shoulder injury would explain why he had to lift the cup the way he did.

Thats what I was thinking. Everytime Brown holds the cup the thing is over his head.

He was in Vegas at some point with the rest. There have been a number of pictures from the parties and there is one night that Kopi is in just about every picture holding the cup for people to drink out of. Nevermind I just checked again and the Kopi pic is from Hollywood, so he wasn't in Vegas... My bad.

As far as Mitchell goes, if he's hurt, he's doing a heck of a job hiding/staying drunk enough for no one to know about it...
