Is Eichel playing injured?

In the Rangers pre-game Joe Micheletti mentioned Eichel had a cracked rib entering training camp. 

 

I was just going to post this.  Saw same thing.  

But I think he said "right before the season started."

 

Wasn't he hurt at practice the week before the first game?

This is something you’d need to ask Ralph. 😂

Well, a cracked rib would explain the slowdown in his play, to some degree anyway. 

I've had a cracked rib and it slowed down how I went to the bathroom.

I’ll bet your technique was still razor sharp though.

Cracked rib is debilitating for about six weeks and would explain his play early on, as well as lack of fitness.

I very much hope that’s the case, not apathy.

RK: well you see the injury at the time you see uh the uh player in question entering training camp obviously not an ideal situation certainly we uh the region um where the injury occured  uh the skating and conditioing getting the player fit what happened earlier before training camp not really say what you think the issue might what uh you feel to be a typical thing where the impact of the movement and the uh lack of the attention we felt it would be best to uh you see thats how it affected the player where if you look at it from the team the ability to uh what the idea where if that who the player is if we uh felt it best for Jack and the team if he couldn't go but the uh warmups if bodily region where we felt if the player did he could but not we couldn't feel if the team did what who where said he if went...

Jack: i broke a rib

If you don’t want to be forthcoming about the injury, and said injury is making you look like you don’t give a ***** on the ice, than maybe it’s time to get off the ice until it is healed. 
 

...and if your crappy play is not a result of an injury, then get the f*** out of here. 😡

So ... I’m just throwing it out there ... collectively we are to believe a report out of New York City… about Eichel. But not believe anything coming out of the Buffalo New York area. 
 

so is this a case of wanting to believe all negative, conspiracy theory, hiding injury type of situation?

Meh ... In a way, I kind of don’t believe this report, just as much as I don’t believe a report coming out of RK’s lips. Frankly I don’t know what to believe. even from Eichel himself.

Considering Eichel and the coach are saying different things about his injury, local reporters are not saying much of anything...owners and GM also saying nothing....yes, I don't believe anything coming out of Buffalo

The way Joe said it so matter of factly feels like it's most likely the truth.   

Maybe it came from Eichel's camp.  If he wants to be a Ranger, perhaps they felt it best to inform their media exactly why he's been struggling this season.

If true, he is dead to me. Completely subversive, opportunistic and looking to seize upon the recent miscommunications from RK about the most recent injury.  I truly hope this is not the case.

A cracked rib going into training camp 2 months ago, ok, wouldn't it be healed by now? or is it just excuses for Jacks horrible play so far? RK needs to go!

Something like that might not heal while he is playing.

I've heard it's multiple injuries. Jack really should be on IR, but he's trying to push through it.

I have heard the same, His Ankle Injury versus NJ was the latest.

He wants to be out there for The Team and is doing everything he can to keep playing. 
 

This includes renting ice time by himself in the mornings at local rinks to keep in shape when the Team Facilities including Harborcenter were closed during the COVID Shutdown. Players and coaches were not allowed in person contact during the shutdown.

I need to hear this stuff.

Anything to explain his on-ice play that doesn't add up to "checked out."

I trust you, am relieved that I don't need to fully adopt a view that I was increasingly worried about - that Jack is checked out, and has quit on us. 

This understanding helps square away what I see on the ice - it makes a lot more sense. 

And hopefully it means he isn't ready to leave just yet.

I think it is clear he is injured. He is too good to have suddenly become useless. When we trade him, it will be a major mistake IMPO.

During the Flyers Game when the Sabres were on the PP, Jack took a one timer where he ended up on one knee. He winced in pain and gingerly skated over to retrieve the puck, the dude is playing through injuries that are obviously effecting His Play.
