Seeing the injury list for the Sharks that came out a bit ago, it’s crazy that they played has hard as they did.
Jumbo- Separated shoulder, tip of pinky detached from finger Heater- Broken hand for late regular season/playoffs, bad twisted ankle in gm 3 Cooch- Broken nose from gm 3 Demers- High ankle sprain in gm7 vs DET Clowe- Needed help putting his own sweater on (assuming something with collarbone)
EDIT FROM OFFICIAL RELEASE
Jason Demers - high ankle sprain
Scott Nichol - laceration above the knee
Dany Heatley - broken hand, high ankle injury
Ryane Clowe - shoulder separation
Dan Boyle - damaged MCL
Logan Couture - broken nose
Joe Pavelski - ankle injury
Joe Thornton - broken pinkie, wrist problem, shoulder separation
And that’s just the few the Brodie Brazil reported. The fight these guys gave, with those injuries… That’s damn impressive. Hats off fellas. We’re proud of you, Sharks.
And people actually argue that these aren’t the toughest athletes out there. Lebron James whined about playing with a cold. Man up athletes, do this right.
