    McDonagh Out Against Hurricanes

    Apparently he's been hurt but they aren't saying since when or how long he'll be out.

    gotta build up that core McD!

    I wonder if he's dealing with something more like a sports hernia. Im dealing with that shit now and its very uncomfortable. Very common in hockey players and soccer players.

    Fatty mentioned him getting drilled last game (which I dont recall).
    He always takes a beating, though. He's going to miss his 10-15 games on a regular basis.

    Quoting from the article "He will see team doctors, and more information will be offered Wednesday, according to Rangers coach Alain Vigneault. His occasional absence from practice this year has been because of the abdominal strain, which the team had explained as “maintenance days.”"

    They're saying abdominal strain, but I remember a play along the boards and he fell awkwardly to the side. The side of his head hit the boards, i think around the benches. It may have been the last game against ottawa. It took him a second to get up. Ramsey talked to him on the bench and he kept shaking his head "no". I was waiting for sam to say he went to the locker room for clearance or something, but nothing. He didn't miss a shift. I have a feeling its a concussion.

    He has had a few awkward falls lately where he has been slow to get up, so it's hard to pin down exactly what is up.

    I know the exact play you're talking about. It definitely didn't look good.

    McD has been taking days off from practice for almost a month now.

    It happened right before the major on smith. Borewicki is the guy that hit him and he looked dazed. I was waiting to hear him being off to the locker room too because he looked hurt. And it looked like it was to the head

    Yep, that's what I read in the post.

    Says it wasn't getting any better so they decided to take him out and get it looked at
    “It’s something that has been there for a little bit, doesn’t seem to be getting better right now,” Vigneault said. “So we just want to check it out. I’ll have more for you tomorrow.”

    When asked if McDonagh would be out for longer than a game, Vigneault said he had “no idea.”

    “I just know it’s been bothering him,” the coach said. “It’s been lingering a little bit. We want to double check things.”

    Maybe this is why he has looked less than spectacular to start the season?

    And this quote is kinda damning for AV. He KNOWS the guy is playing hurt and he kept him in the lineup and sat Smith??

    Why play the guy until it is a bigger issue and not make sure you aren't possibly hampering his career and future?

    Do you know how hard it is to convince a player to not play due to an injury like that? It's a mentality driven into you at a young age - you're not hurt, you're a hockey player.

    That was bizarre. I must have missed that game. Definitely concerning...

    It was last season, some time in October I think. I found it stunning that it wasn't really talked about. Maybe it was minor, and just a daze of some sorts, but idk, I don't like that.

    He took a stick in the eye. He couldn't see.


    And since he's ok - it's hilarious.

    Yeah, lost sense of direction after he took a knee... he starts going perpendicular towards the boards, he thought he was angling towards the bench.
