Obviously until it's back to 100% you can never be certain...but the doctors have stated they expect him to make a full recovery.

I think Staal is trolling and will play game 1.
With the lack of comments, I'd guess Clowe probably has a lower body injury + concussion, so who knows if he comes back at all.

A lot of people don't like it, but times like these you want the nfl rules that require them to tell the media everything. Stops arguments over mystery injuries and return time tables.

The fact that he didn't rule it out makes me think that it's a serious possibility. It's a very NYR thing to tell us nothing, and then we turn on the TV Thursday night and he's out on the ice. He sounded positive in his comments earlier today(posted on this thread), so I think that if he thinks he can do it, he'll play.

My guesses for order of return
1-Staal(Early in round 1, maybe thursday?)
2-Dorsett(Sometime next week probably, although Thursday isn't out of the question)_
3-Clowe(If it's a concussion, late 2nd round seems likely (4 weeks ish), if it's not, who knows)
4-Boyle(We know nothing about him, and based on that I can't imagine it's good)

It's totally possible that Clowe just pulled something and was taking a rest day, but that looked quite a bit like a concussion to me. Staal/Dorsett should be fairly soon, with Boyle being the wild card.

I read on another board that EJ Hradek said that Staal's return does not look good. Anyone hear that? Fortunately, Hradek is an idiot.

Yeah I'd take anything he said with a grain of salt.

If Hradek says he's out, then he's absolutely going to play Thursday. LOL.

Anyway, it would be great to have Staalsy and Dorsett back.

How sick would it be if NYI beat PIT, OTT beat MTL, We Beat the Caps and TOR miraculously beat BOS?

round 2 matchup would be

NYI-TOR
OTT-NYR

Two canadian teams vs the 2 New York Teams and then if both NY Teams win its NYI-NYR in the conference finals. With NYR coming out on top of course

When did the Rangers become such a super secretive organization? I mean, maybe I just haven't been paying attention for the last twenty plus years, but I don't recall them being this quiet about injuries. It's really silly.

Sather is a knight templar, hence the secrecy.

It's not silly at all. It's the playoffs, which means any information that you can keep from your opponent is advantageous. I don't blame them one bit for keeping quiet about who will/will not be in the lineup on Thursday. Some of you guys need to relax a bit and stop questioning management.

I don't really have a problem with it now but during this past season it was a bit silly.

The panicing part of the fan base (me included) were thinking the worst on Nash when they could have just released some damn news

I don't think it's just the Rangers, or hockey organizations, but professional sports teams all-together. Growing trend over the years. Not a big fan of it, personally.

Hradek is good for abaolutly nothing but blind speculation.

Their not going to release information that's going to make key players targets in the playoffs, everything was hush hush around gaborik injury last year, Nash's injury at the beginning of the year and Boyle and clowes injuries of late, I wouldn't expect that to change one bit especially with the playoffs now.

They're allowed to, but I can see why people find it unfair and ridiculous.

And they did it all season to. We literally heard nothing about Nash. What makes it worse is no other team does it really.

They've been this way throughout the regular season and for most of the past several seasons. Also, I didn't really criticize the management outside of referring to their hush hush injury policy as "silly", so if you really think I need to relax I don't know what to say to you. I'm clearly very fired up about this eh?

No need to take my post out of context...I never said you were fired up but okay. And that message wasn't directed towards just you, but you were the last person I saw to make a comment about it.

Had to fix it... as we haven't really 'had' Dorsett yet

I feel like all these guys will make "miraculous" recoveries by Thursday. It's the playoffs. Players play through injuries. I'm a bit less optimistic on Staal, considering it has to do with his vision, but I'm still hopeful because it seems like from the reports that he's just trying to adjust back to game speed. A few extra days of practice is a godsend. Thanks NHL schedulers!!!

If it provides any kind of competitive advantage, then I don't really care how secretive they want to be. I have no reason to need to know aside from curiosity. I just want to see a winner on the ice.

heres hoping. I don't see any reason to have them skate Monday or even Tuesday but Wednesday they have too or they are out

Dorsett- if he's cleared he will play 4th line

Clowe- same thing, hopefully its not a concussion cause then who knows

Staal- I think he's still out. If his vision was 100% sure but otherwise its his vision so they cant take the chance.

Torts wont run Powe, Asham, Newbury/Haley much if that's his options.
