I think he has been taken out because of his "hot-headed"-ness. Right now he has to be the most notable shark to take a stupid penalty(not something they feel they need to risk at this time). When he is publicly calling Kronwall out, no matter what he does the refs are looking for it.


I kinda highly doubt they would simply bench their leading scorer in a pivotal playoff game on the road.

He is out because of the Kronwall hit, plain and simple. "Flu like symptoms"

I dont really buy the 'flu like symptoms' thing to be honest. The guy didn't look or seem sick Sunday. It would have had to sprung up out of nowhere yesterday for them to keep him off the flight. If I'm not mistaken they flew out Monday morning. So the timing seems weird. The only thing that would make a bit of sense if it was the flu is that on a flight like that they wouldnt want it to spread to the rest of the team.

To me, if he woke up with the flu bad enough to keep him off the flight he probably had the flu during Game 5. If that was the case he would have been taking some shifts off when it was 3-1 to rest up. Something doesnt make sense to me.

Rule #1 against a big hitter. Keep your mouth shut. Hopefully Clowe has learned that.

I'd call it a wash: no Clowe, no Franzen. SJ has been spreading their scoring around nicely between all their wingers - so this hurts, but not a game breaker.
New season, New start! May the force be with the Wings this time!

Franzen hasn't been himself since the Doan hit and even before that with some other injuries... Losing Clowe is a much more dire situation for the Sharts.

Clowe bounced right back up after that hit and played the entire game. It's kind of hard to believe he has a concussion. However, He Who Shall Not Be Named played, what, a couple of games after allegedly getting a concussion? Tough call. It may not be a concussion, but I'm not buying the "flu-like symptoms." That's a smoke screen for sure.
Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

Finishing a game when hurt is not the least bit surprising.

Seabrook did it this year, Crosby, Mule, the list goes on and on.


Perfectly normal to battle through the rest of the game and then when you take the pads off discover something isn't right.

No flu here, he's suffering from a Kroncussion.

A coach might if he has been under-performing and is liable to sit in the box on more than one occasion. I don't buy concussion, or flu-symptoms. It must be something else.

There is a nasty flu going around SJ right now. I went to bed with oncoming symptoms, and woke up in the middle of the night, full on, pain in the bone, shaking, hot-cold, with a nasty cough and chest congestion. The fact that Clowe didn't even make the trip sounds like quarantine to me.

Seems odd. I'd think they would have another plane on standby to send him here and just send him separately and see how he is doing for the pre-game skate.... This is all speculation from everyone but I also don't buy they can't bring him by himself either.

Of course I never wish injuries upon anyone, even hated rivals...

But I can think of few other instances where someone DESERVED this more than Clowe.


He instigates a fight in the last seconds of game 4, takes several cheap sucker punches at Abby while the linesman holds Abby in place

I realize that's the way people see it around here, but I want to suggest something to you: perhaps Abby was a willing participant in that fight. Perhaps the reason Clowe wasn't given an instigator was because Abby was up for the fight. That makes more sense to me - they're both big guys and game to throw down. Keep in mind that after the face-off, the camera cut away following the puck. Before the face-off, the two were jousting a bit and then leaned back away from each other, which is usually the way fights start - one guy says "let's go" and the other says "you got it," then they give themselves some room to swing.

. THEN he has the stupidity to come out and say "I wish it was against Kronwall". Looks like you got more than you bargained for. :lol:


I doubt that hit is what put him out. He got up and played the whole game after that just fine and didn't miss a shift. Big hit no doubt, and I'm sure he's going to look around to see if Kronwall's on the ice going forward, but they're both physical hockey players, and that's something he's got to expect every game. But that's probably not what put him out.

Of course we don't know.

As far as him calling Kronwall out... whatever. I'm sure he's pissed that Kronwall's gotten the better of him a couple of times. He should be. I'm sure he'd love to get in a fight with Kronwall, and would probably come out the better of the two, but Kronwall's not going to take the bait like Abby did, so Clowe's going to continue being frustrated. That's probably why Babcock's putting him out against Clowe as much as he can.

I also feel like this has nothing to do with it as players have come back and played after being concussed and not diagnosed. He popped right up but he wouldn't be the first to ever do that either.

Watching the video, it looks more like a sore shoulder to me.


More like a sore ******...

Nope, pretty much clowe just going after Abby. Abby was just standing his ground and Clowe dropped em and started throwing. Watch for yourself, apparently from an angle you didn't see...

Wow, huge and surprisingly loss for the Sharks. He's been a PITA the whole series. I don't think the loss of Franzen makes this a wash either. Franzen has clearly been hobbled this entire series. Not to mention we're replacing him with Mike Modano. Who will the Sharks dress in his place?

But like I said... he isn't underperforming at all... he is their leading scorer. This is the playoffs, you simply do NOT bench your leading scorer for taking one or two penalties.

QFT

Also they only roll 3 lines, it would be easier to not scratch him and just have him sit while a 4th liner plays in his stead, that way if you go down you can still put him in.

@Real_ESPNLeBrun Just chatted with Sharks coach Todd McLellan who confirmed Ryane Clowe is out for tonight with upper body injury


Flu my butt. Hope "upper body" doesn't mean "head."

EDIT:

@Real_ESPNLeBrun McLellan said Clowe injury had ``nothing to do with the hit Kronwall laid on him.''


Ah, and there's my answer. Ok, now I can just sit back and be happy he's not playing.
