No news is bad news when it comes to McQuaid. I believe they're trying to hide that he has a concussion and probably wont be back for a while.

That way, if/when he does come back, no one has it in the back of their mind to hit him hard and take him out again.

A man like that doesn't sit for weeks over a cut on the face unless it's a deep, infected cut that won't heal. Even then, I think he plays with a cage.

The other possibility is that it's a borken or fracutred bone in his face, but again, I think he'd play with a cage. This smells like a concussion to me.

Yep, this.

And the last I heard, he hasn't even been skating. If that's true, he aint back for game 7.

I think it is a concussion too.

I think he also may be done.

If it isn't a concussion then I suspect a neck strain or some sort, but then you would think he would be skating.

I hope we win game 7 because I have developed a deep dislike for Chimera.

McQuaid's status seems to be super top secret.

Given that he isnt skating and isn't practicing with the team he likely is concussed.

I hope he gets better soon though. The team misses him. I was so excited before Chimer's hit that the Bruins wouldn't have to dress Corvo for the playoffs. Guess I shouldn't have counted those chickens before they hatched.

I'm tired of saying "I just hope he's healthy, never mind coming back to hockey" when it comes to Bruins' players. I know all teams have their concussion issues, but it's crazy with this team and it's not just their style of play--the majority have been caused by late or cheap hits going back to Bergeron's bad one.

I ran into him a week or two ago (now I wish I knew what game) before the game and before they let people in, he seemed pretty upbeat- certainly wasn't walking around like he was auditioning for Dawn of the Dead.

Perhaps he's closer to coming back than we think, or had an unrelated setback, then?

If McQuad wore a visor he would not have gotten that cut, if it is the cut thats keeping him out

If it is a Concussion then maybe visor had just right amount of give to prevent it

Even trying to get answers on this is pointless. The team won't let anyone gameplan one way or the other. It's going to be ultra top secret, as it should.

Still frustrating for us

According to BISH on the Bruins official twitter, #54 was not skating at practice today.

Starting to think more and more that McQuaid is suffering from a concussion.

Agreed.

Leaving a game because he "Felt Funny" has concussion written all over it...

Let me ask this though.. why wouldn't just come out and say he has one...Was it not made public with Horton / Bergy last year? I get the gamemanship thing, but why not be consistent with it, we had all sorts of updates with bergy

Convinced he's got a C-word.

Real shame since he wouldn't have gotten one if he didn't dive

Any other team in the league would immediately diagnose a concussion and hope Shanny uses it in warranting a suspension.

Good question-makes me also wonder why the super to secret. Maybe McQuaid doesn't want them announcing it-I know teams are limited by privacy rules with regards to medical information.

But I do find it weird that they haven't come ut and said what it is.

Is Krejci injured? Why is his name in the thread title? Is that old?

Probably from the pane of glass falling on his head.

If players have any say at all in what information is released and when, I could see if maybe he'd ask that they don't give any updates until he's close to coming back. This is conjecture, but based on the type of guy Adam is, he probably doesn't want his injury and absence to be any more a distraction than it already is just by nature of the fact he's out.

If there's no word and that doesn't change, the questions stop being asked. However, if bits of new info trickle out here and there and the team makes statements and plays the guessing game as to when he'll come back (like with Horton at the beginning of his recovery a month or two ago), it keeps being asked about and it becomes a bit more distracting.

We can debate how distracting it really is, but I'm just saying that I can see Quaider being the type of guy who wants to do everything possible to help his team, even when he's down with an injury. If he thinks the best way to do that at the moment is to request silence about his status to minimize the attention and talk regarding his injury and allow the active players to focus on the games at hand rather than how much they miss having him around, then I think he does that.

In fact, regardless of how McQuaid feels about the release of his injury information, I can see the front office staying quiet about it for the very same reasons--give the active players every advantage possible as they try to focus and win playoff games.

Bingo, his name was listed after game 1 and was probable for game 2 not knowing how bad he was hurt when that glass fell on his head

I change the thread title to prevent heart attacks.
