Zero chance and he should not be back in the lineup for the last few games for many obvious reasons. People will write anything for a click.

Could Letang help, absolutely. But at what risk?

OTOH, a 18-20 minute Letang is an upgrade over whomever is replaced (Hainsey) so if he is truly cleared, you take it but I think it's just blowing smoke. Make Nashville think about it that they have to get it done in 6 or be completely unprepared for a Letang-graced lineup.

I asked GMJR if Letang would be available, he said No.

I asked him again the next day while he was eating a dansih, he paused for a long time, he turned blue and was coughing.... I am taking that as a sign that he might be ready. I would of pushed the question but some lady was giving him CPR and thought I will ask again tomorrow.


Man, I could be a NHL insider!!

Not so sure. From this video, it looks like he is ready and willing to hit the ice.

This doesn't even pass the sniff test and smells like garbage. Has Letang been practicing with the team? I don't care if he was 100% healthy -- I wouldn't take a player, even Letang, and sit him on the sidelines for 2 months then -- without any preparation or ramp-up -- toss him onto game 5 of the Stanley Cup Finals.

I was thinking the same thing. Whatever credibility he had should be squat.

When had Letang been back if he had had surgery immediately when they discovered his injury?

Doubtful. His last game was in mid-February (I think 2/17). 4 months from then would have been mid-June, and I would doubt he'd. E ready to play even a game 7.

Did Bonino attempt the warm-up skate last night? I didn't get the game on until about 30 seconds before the puck drop.

Not our injury but Ellis did not look good today skating on his own and also did not participate in an Optional team skate. Some Preds trying to talk up the garbage they have after their top 4. If Ellis can't play that will be a huge blow we have to jump on.

Sean Gentile reporting that Nick Bonino has a broken tibia and had to take some shots just to be able to get on the ice tonight.
