Let's see what offended the always affable Neely so much:
1.So with the Sabres in a playoff spot and fighting their way up the standings, is it fair for Vanek to be taking 5 weeks off for a lacerated/broken jaw?
She obviously meant the 5 weeks off not as a vacation, but as in, 5 weeks to heal.
2.There have been many similar injuries to many players in the league, I can't remember the last time a player has missed that much time for a broken/lacerated jaw. This is why cages exist, no?
Me neither, and yes indeed.
3.Is it necessary for him to miss that long? He is the top scoring player on the team, some would argue, their most valuable player going into the end stretch of the season and the playoffs.
No, I doubt he'll let it come to that. Good question though. Are there any doctors in tha' house?
4.What do you all think of him missing this time? Is it necessary? What kind of a leader hangs their team out to dry like this?
All questions. Poor choice of words at the end, but all questions none the less.
Don't take things quite so seriously or literally. I think she questions the amount of time he's scheduled to be out - not the quality of his character.
I would just leave it at that. Just...leave it at that, it's annoying. You've said your piece, now let 'er go.
