Jagr + Groin problems = trouble for the Rangers?

http://www.tsn.ca/nhl/news_story/?ID=156227&hubname=nhl

It says that Jagr injured his groin todat and left the game in the 2nd and spent the 3rd period on the bench.

I hope the next 4 days is enough of a break to get some good solid PT from the Rangers training staff.

this, along with the hit from Ruutu was not a good tourney for Jagr.

I cannot even begin to stress how much I despise the NHL players particpation in this tournament.

Past the games in Vancouver, I really think that if the NHL is still participating in the Olympics, that it is only a matter of time until teams begin to have the power to block their player participation.

I think Vancouver will be it for NHL player participation.

The schedule this year was beyond ridiculous. Russia & the Czechs just finished up 8 games in 11 nights.

a weeks rest would do him a great deal of good.

Could we have some of the prelims either starting the day of the olympics or a couple days early? that would work, the Olympics are 15 days long, 8/15 days is alot better than 8/12.

Or maybe earlier in the week, make it 8/18 days.

Jagr feels he'll be ready, but...

he's had groin problems in the past - the extra work didn't do him any good.

I'm not against the participation of NHL players in the Olympics because of the potential for injuries, but, that potential doesn't make me happy nonetheless.

Sorta agree, rank 10 teams, - top 6 make it to medal round, bottom 4 round robin it for last two spots to complete a field of 8.

Its a concern but Jagr keeps himself in such good shape that when he does get a groin injury he don't hurt it as bad as other people.He might miss a game here or there over a long period of time to give it a rest.

If Jagr says he's ready to go, then you play him. An extra day or two rest would be good, but in the end he knows himself best.

Jagr gets injured less frequently than most players (especially considering the pounding he takes), and he plays through most injuries or comes back quickly from them, but a groin injury could be difficult, depending on how serious it is, because stress is put on it with every stride. Hopefully this is a "slight tweak of the groin, better sit out the third period and rest it a few days" type of injury not a "substantial groin injury that will be nagging him the rest of the year" type of injury. This is about the worst injury for Jagr (if serious), besides a (major) broken bone, and on par with the "unspecified lower body injury" (hip/knee).

That's a big game against Philly, so hopefully he will play, but no reason to if it isn't properly healed.

i only worry about it because of the last groin/hip injury he had, it was obvious on the ice that he wasn't himself. but, even injured he chipped in with a bunch of assists and a few goals.
but, that was early in the season. i'd rather sit him for at least the philly game and not risk not having him at some point down the road in the rest of the schedule. either way the philly game turns out, we'll still be in first place in the atlantic.

If he says he can go, play him vs Philly. Anyway...we gotta get back to talking about Colton Orr...haha, jk. However, who does everyone think are the odd men out once Betts and Prucha return? Who would be the 3 regular scratches?

The schedule, from what I understand, was crazy because it was made before it was known if NHL players would participate.

My feeling on this is that it is very possible that Jagr just took it easy in the bronze game. Many players always have groin problems and Jagr is one of them. I don't think his groins ever are 100%. 8 games in 11 days probably pushed his towards the limit, Jagr took the decision that gooing 100% in a Bronze game wasn't worth risking something. I think he will play against the Flyers.

The scheduele was tough, but not as tough as it sounds. I saw all Czech games and their 8 games combined are not even equal to 4-5 games in the NHL from a physical standpoint.

I don't think that's correct. The schedule was made up after the CBA was completed and NHL participation in the Olympics was part of the CBA. There is no way Bettman (who has always seen the Olympics as a showcase for NHL talent) and the league didn't know exactly what they were doing.

Yep he's had groin problems for a while. Mostly its due to flat feet and the way it forces him to push off when skating. I remember stories of him using acupuncture and trying different skates out to try and correct the problem. I'm not sure what he's been doing lately but it seems like its something that will just nag him for the rest of his career.

Renney spoke to Jaromir Jagr, and said Jagr reported his groin tweaked in the Olympics was fine.
