Is there a rule that the Red Wings, Pittsburgh and Boston cannot have healthy players and a full roster?

Maybe Gustavsson being so…out of control all the time would risk injury more. He should learn how to play in a less scary way.

Can’t see how Z “rushing back” from a back injury would cause a sore groin. I’m no physical fitness expert, but I’m starting to think, as more players end up with groin issues, that our trainers need to be put on the hot seat.

Since Z is confident he’s in tomorrow, the only question I have is this: Is Howard in, or is Mrazek in?
