Still, I believe that for something to be that bothersome, he couldn't have played through it the entire year. Well, I don't want to rag on Ryder cuz I think he's a great player. Just saying that I doubt the severity of his injury. I don't want to get into a whole debate.
I think that at the level they play, even a minor stiffness could impact performance. I'm just guessing though.
And your friend got it in ''Le journal de Montreal'' yesterday. It's a fun fact about Pleks , he dosen't play golf. I had a picture somewhere on my pc but i can't find it.. It's Plekanec sitting on the ice , his back along the boards with his stick in the air like he was sitting and fishing while watching the Canes celebrate their victory in the 1st round.
Yeah Pleky still doesn't have any of his clothes...and it has been a week.
Something got messed up on his connection from Toronto and none of his bags made it to MTL...he got 2 of them the next day but those just had hockey stuff in them...the third one with all his clothes still hasn't arrived
- The reason of Samsonov's visa problem is that he wanted to come to the tourney and then leave Canada to come back next week. Apparently, visa people don't like the idea. And why he didn't want to be in Montreal for a week before the camp starts, to figure things out and such, I don't know. Samsonov will live in Jose Theodore's old house, also.
- Andrei Markov never made it to the golf course. He got lost, and also lost his information card they had given him...in case he got lost. One of his teammates found him in time for the night charity event/meal. I swear I couldn't make him sound any stupider if I tried. This man has serious issues. Maybe it is best for him to just go back to Russia and be home. I wonder if he's illiterate? I don't know, swinging in the dark here, but hey...
- ...And Plekanec wouldn't have shown up...err, he didn't? He could have been on vegetables duty, too. It's a charity event, Tomas. I'm sure the guy knows better than that and is not rotten or anything.
- Koivu golfed. Don't know how well he golfed, but there's no way you can hit a golf ball with a golf club at all with an eye injury that kills your peripheric vision and supposedly threatens your career. And he did golf. So he'll surely be able to hit the puck with the stick when time comes, don't worry.
I interpreted those as pokes and stabs at those players. How about giving them the benifit of the doubt?
ps: I'd just like to add you need 0 perifiral vision to hit a golf ball.
