Now that his iron man streak is broken, he should take those extra few days off to heal any odd bumps and bruises as his lower body heals too. Let him get back to good physical condition, with a few games left to play in the regular season to come back to speed.
We absolutely need to beat phx so I don't thnk we can coast in. If JT helps us win reg games then all the better. Detroit is very likely a 5th seed, so getting 4th seed would be disastrous.
I'm not concerned about playing detroit. If we can't beat detroit, we can't win the cup anyway. I think beating detroit is exactly what the Shark's need to feel like "this year is different" and get some confidence for later rounds.
