In response to biggskye's comment:
Something very strange about this whole situation. I have heard groin injury, and I heard Quenneville say it was an "upper body" injury. This type of evasivenes, is normal, but if it was a day to day, see how he feels in the warmup, type thing, like Queneville is saying, why would they not have dressed an extra player, for the warmup?
Instead, a rookie has to get dressed between the warmup and start of the game, and play his first shift without the benefit of a warmup.
It makes me wonder if something actually happened in the warmup.
I think the only drama was trying to keep Julien from game-planning around no Hossa. Smith was told to be ready in the a.m. The "groin injury" report was from someone in the media, and the list of guys I trust to get accurate injury information in a Stanley Cup finals is very very short. If Quenneville says "upper body" then it's "upper body". And hey, who cares. Ice packs are over there, Mr. Hossa, and we have a fridge full of beer and soda. Enjoy the suite.
