Concussion.com has ably explained Crosby's malady. Excessive whining, as in "Wah! Wah!!" actually causes cramps in the jawbone and transmits them to the brain, causing swelling. And yes, it's been proven too that the Ego is a major partner in that ballooning process.

It has also been rumored that Steckel knew about Crosby's physical weakness and was only trying to loosen up his jaw muscles.

"He even ate with women who at that time were accorded the same status as the family donkey. Are we willing to break bread with, say, child sex slaves, transgender teens and undocumented workers? Because when Jesus comes back to Earth, that's where he'll be hanging."
You can easily judge the character of a man by how he treats those who can do nothing for him.

I banged my head pretty good this week and even without a concussion managed to do more than my share of stupid forgetful things.

Are you sure it just wasn't the whiskey? :P

Anybody else feel that Dave Steckel is maybe in their top 10 fave players at the moment?? Posted Image

Either way, looks incidental to me. Steckel was going for the puck and Skid mark seemed to move right into it. Posted Image The day he can sport something like this and keep playing, come talk to me:

Steve was the man, is the man, was the man. He played in the '02 SCF on half a leg. One knee was s*** and the other was about to go too.

I still remember when he took that puck to the face though, because he'd get injured sometimes and you never saw him react to it violently. He would just get off the ice and that was that. This downed him like a felled tree and watching him writhe around and kick on the ice like that was disturbing.

Can we all send a MASS EMAIL with our signatures to the Washington Capitals so it can be forwarded to Dave S. thanking him over n over for putting Crosby down?

I am serious on this one...

I hate to break it to you, but Stevey did NOT play with a broken Orbital bone. That shot took him out of the rest of the playoffs.

The knee thing, sure. the multitudes of other injuries he had and hid until after the season, yes I agree with you. But in this specific case, no.

If you start a new thread within two hours after a Wings game, specifically a loss, YOU ARE WRONG.

It must have happened in the Winter Classic. Because anyone not suffering from a head injury would have went and shook hands with the other team. You know, that tradition crap he's always spewing, yet constantly avoiding.


So he had a concussion during Game 7 of the 2009 playoffs too?


Oh don't worry guys, the best player in the league will be back in a week.


I didn't know Pavel was coming back early!

And here I thought we were getting out of hand. :lol:

I raise a glass to Dave Steckel, even though it was clearly unintentional. :D

Yea that was a horrible game. I was actually watching with friends, who aren't Red Wings fans, but Leaf fans. They had no class and actually gave me a hard time when Calgary won that game. Obviously I was crushed about Yzerman, I thought his career was over, and couldn't care less about the loss.

After that game I decided I'll never watch a Red Wings game with someone who isn't a Red Wings fan. Also it proved that Leaf fans suck!!

Edit: I've never forgotten that night...
