Fletcher :presser Patrick.


Recommended Posts

Not much new information. 

 

Basically said he expects Patrick to play this year. The tempo of his practices has increased. He's skating, shooting, and puck handling well. 

 

He can't speculate on when Patrick will be cleared for contact. 

 

My guess is that the moment he's cleared for contact, he's probably 3-4 weeks away from an NHL game. Probably a week of full practices with the team, then an AHL stint to have real games, but at a slower tempo, then back with the bigs to get ready for an NHL game.

If  you had to bet, where in that paragraph would you insert, "get injured?"

I don't buy it what else is he supposed to say.

 

Just shut him down for the year.

 

Even if he does come back the first hard check he takes he's back out the lineup.

 

I hate to be a negative Nancy or a @ruxpin but I don't think he will ever be a full time NHLer again.

 

Happy to be wrong.

Based on what ?

I am having a hard time believing you hate being negative Nancy.

Do you read your posts?

 

This is unknown, if the situation gets "resolved" there's no guarantee of anything, 

Doesn't Nicklas Backstrom have migranes?  He manages to stay in the line-up and he's a soft euro....

 

how about Negative Nick, or Ned ?

I had that feeling when he was drafted. that he just was never going to be a factor. He is a modern day Doug Wickenheiser.

I mean, he could say the opposite - "for the sake of Patrick's health and well-being, we have all agreed that the best course of action as advised by the doctors and specialists is for him to spend the next 6 months focusing on finding a solution, and that would include no physical contact sports during this period. So we will re-evaluate over the summer and hopefully he is cleared for the fall."

 

But he didn't. And he has a lot more information than we do. If nothing else, Fletch has been rather forthcoming in his responses since being here. Seems like a genuine guy.

 

Also, these are not post-concussion symptoms, if the doctors and specialists are to be believed - and he did see one of the leading concussion specialists. 

 

So, I'm hopeful that he will come back this season until told otherwise.
