Walker's Answer: "I have no idea. This seems to be his answer all the time when asked theses questions.


Actually it's the answer any coach would give about an injured player at this time of the season. All part of the game.

Section 108

Congrat's to the team for winning this series all their hard work is paying off. So much fun as well to watch Bertuzzi again!


After watching Bert these two games, who said he was off for 3 months!You would never know it. With him back, it make swallowing the pill that Robbie is not in a little easier.


Tony he has been giving theses kinds of answer are year long.

Al the last Town Hall meeting Walker was asked about Bert. He said when it comes to injured players he doesn't ask, when the medical staff tells him the injured player is cleared to play he puts him in the lineup..


Why would a coach not ask his own medical staff. That is hard to believe. He is the coach for God sake. Come on.

Marcel Lanneval

Maybe he has respect for the medical staff. I am happy to see that he does not over rule them and put players back in the lineup too early.

Tony Saxon

Part of his thinking is that he doesn't want the training staff or player to feel pressure from the coaching staff to return before they are ready.


I think it's great, he coaches the team that is available to him and lets the medical staff deal with the injuries. I think there are some fans from other teams that would prefer this method over the one supposedly employed by their coaching staff. Also probably a good reason why we aren't losing players to injury now (Fabbri the exception since it was a hit and not a wear and tear injury).
