Something has been nagging him for little while. He missed Monday's practice and then played 25+ minutes Tuesday night. Speculation is it may be his hip, but nobody knows except those who aren't talking.
With such a short training camp and so few rest days in a compressed schedule I do suspect we're going to see a lot of nagging injuries force players to the sidelines for several games at a time b/c there's no natural healing space in the schedule.
I have Byfuglien and Letang and the rest of my D-corps is grossly under-performing so I can ill afford Letang to miss time.
