Did you just look at that GIF? I really really doubt he will be back this series.

Jokinen on the other hand, I think he'll play tomorrow. More of a stinger.

Yeah. if its so bad why did he come out for another shift? He'll be fine, sprained ankle

Jokinen has a stinger? in his shoulder? lol, he faked the injury cuz he knew it was a dirty attempt. Guarantee he's fine

Because it's playoffs and he wants to play. That's why he came back out.

Shoulder? No.. his ankle from the ankle to ankle which they are calling a knee to knee. Lol Yeah I know he'll be fine.

He got hit in the shin. It's called a charlie-horse. You shake it off and are fine after 5 minutes

No disrespect to Neal, but if Beau takes his spot, let him stay out for as long as needed. Excellent opportunity for the rookie.

At least they have the wing depth this year to overcome the injury. Jussi is another candidate to move to the wing when Sid returns. That's assuming Jussi's injury isn't worse than it looked (didn't look bad).

Uggh at that gif.
Only hope is that he didn't have alot of weight on that skate seeing as he was launched in the air and tilted backwards.

Kunitz-Malkin-Bennett
Dupuis-Jokinen-Iginla
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke
Glass-Adams-Kennedy

If Jokinen's out too.

Kunitz-Malkin-Bennett
Dupuis-Jeffrey-Iginla
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke
Glass-Adams-Kennedy

You could insert Vitale and move the centers up as well but...

You realize that the last part of that comment was completely useless since I agreed that he would be fine.

Because we're the Penguins and we'll get the worst scenario possible.

These injuries are getting out of hand. Seems like Pens will win this series either way, but ya gotta be worried for future series..

The way I see it Sid will be back for game 2. The injuries to both Neal and Jokinen will likely force the doctor's hand into clearing him for action, especially seeing as how Sid has felt good to go for about a week now. If both Jussi and Neal are out next game then these are the lines I think DB will go with:

Kuni-Sid-Dupuis
Bennett-Geno-Iggy
Morrow-Sutter-Cooke
Glass-Adams-Kennedy

I personally think Jokinen will be back soon though after seeing the replay of the collision a couple more times. Neal on the other hand...

Well, Neal doesn't skate all that much anyways. Just plant him in a sniping position and let's go.

All I know that if he played one shift after the sprain, the injury cannot be THAT bad. I´ve had pretty much similar ankle sprains couple of times and the pain after that is just unbearable. My ankle swolled and I could not run for few weeks. But the pain right after the sprain was terrible and it would be unimaginale to skate after that...or Neal has way much better pain tolerance than I do hmm, thats probably true to be honest.. Ok, we are screwed, again.

BTW when was the last time a player from Pens did not have as bad injury as it was first diagnosed? It seems that if some player is projected to be out for a "few" weeks, he is gonna be out at least 2 weeks, most likely three. In Crosbys case few weeks=month. When was the last time we were positively suprised that some of our player got healthier way before anyone thought he would be? Like for example Karlsson.. His Achilles Tendon was cut badly, at LEAST 6months recovery time.. Then, a MIRACLE happens and he is back in playoffs after missing 2,5months... Wait.. what?

Frustrating.

Well Paul Martin ended up being a best case scenario in terms of recovery time. Before that I actually think it might have been James Neal's "broken foot" or whatever it was that was supposed to keep him out for a bunch of time last year.

I have seen players play after spraining their ankles. Roethlisberger returned to a game after spraining his ankle against the Browns but he then went on to miss a bunch of games after that. He also looked in noticeably more pain than Neal did. Crosby and Fleury also looked in far more pain when they sprained their ankles a few years ago. Sid needed help just walking down the runway and went on to miss over a month of games. Neal is either unbelievably tough or maybe he got lucky and didn't sprain it that bad.

Sid just needs to see Dr Ted Carrick again- a few more gyroscope treatments and his jaw will be fixed and good to go for Friday!

The gif does look bad, but it might not be so bad...I would bet the first portion of that bend we see is the top of his skate, where its the loosest and has some give, followed by his ankle. Still looks bad, but maybe not as bad as it initially looks and the fact that Neal gave it a go after the incident.

I think he'll be out a few games, but will for sure be in the start of the 2nd series if we get there.
