What's Wrong With Craig Anderson?

from Don Brennan of the Ottawa Sun,

It's quite possible the rising questions about Craig Anderson's character would be put to bed by somebody coming clean on his injury.

Instead, we are left to believe a 'stinger' has kept the No. 1 goalie out of the line up for five games already -- and now at least two more going forward -- which has prompted experts on social media to diagnose Anderson as 'soft.'

That's a little harsh, of course. None of them know what Anderson has been dealing with since leaving the Nashville game Mar. 10 after being bumped by teammate Milan Michalek. Nobody knows because the team, like others in the NHL, is vague on injuries, treating them as state secrets.

In his one conversation with reporters since his disappearance, Anderson made it clear that any discomfort he was feeling over the shot he took on the shoulder from Shea Weber had pretty much subsided.

So he's missing all these crucial games down the stretch because of the Michalek bump? Do stingers normally keep players out of action for more than two weeks or, as one reporter put it, is this a 'humdinger of a stinger.'
