That's why I'm wondering if it was something that would keep the team more inclined to not bring him back out there. Thats probably something they would really want to evaluate before putting him back on the ice. And he probably knows enough about the potential severity for a right shoulder injury to himself. Knowing Kovy, unless it was the pain associated with a REALLY severe shoulder injury, I imagine he would still try to talk his way back onto the ice.
Especially with a five-minute power play. There was no way he was missing that for precautionary reasons/a bruise.
This is also where crapping the bed the last month hurts us. If we won even a few more games against a bad schedule, we'd at least be comfortably in a playoff position to where at least you could hope to get Kovy back if it's a six-week injury. Now there might not be any playoffs for Kovy to come back to.

if Broduer was "day to day" for almost a month, how long is "a short time" for Kovy
This team speaks in riddles. I wish they would just give us an honest, accurate timetable for when players get injured. I understand it's guesswork to a degree, but getting it wrong by a month is a bit much. Kovy.....be okay soon.
