What's to be gained by playing while injured? The season was lost ages ago. Just like philly boy said. Stupid player, stupid coaches, stupid organization.


That's just it. What's playing an extra game while hurt going to do? We know that Klefbom has been hurt, favouring his shoulder and just had a minor procedure - most likely a scope - that kept him out of the last couple of games. Even if the chances of aggravating the injury are minor, why risk it?

The possible gains - Klefbom gets 3 more games played on his resume this year. He may pick up a point or two. The Oilers might even win a couple of them. All of this is tempered by the fact that it doesn't matter any more. The playoff hunt is over for the Oilers.

The possible risks - He's hurt, and could be hurt further. He's been protecting his shoulder for a while and he just had a small surgery, so I do not believe there's no risk to it. He also is possibly not the best option for the team, given that he's hurt. Is an injured Klefbom head and shoulders above a healthy Benning - especially since playing him means that they have to play at least one left shot on the wrong side? On top of that, there's a perception that the Oilers have been irresponsible in the past in dealing with player injuries. They've been accused of pushing players who are injured to come back early (other than the rookie season McDavid injury when they held him out a month longer than expected). It shouldn't help that perception when you consider that he injured his shoulder in the playoffs last year and the Oilers had him play all season with it only to learn now that he needs surgery.

I think the risks far outweigh the gains here. There's no real good argument for letting him dress this week when you know his season ends Monday and you know the Oilers season ends on April 7th.
