Nasty stuff. He was taken out on a stretcher. CBC announced near the end of the game that he had sustained a concussion; the severity of it is not yet known.

Never had strong feelings one way or the other for Parros, other than his mustache, he was pretty much a generic goon. That being said, when I saw this on tv my heart skipped a beat, because it never ends well when you fall on your head like that. I was glad to hear it was *only* a concussion, because it really looked a lot worse.

Kinda figured this was the case after watching the game. The way he was moving about as he was trying to get up. Hope he's not out too long though.

Some of you may not know it, but Parros is by far one of the smarter goons. Played for Princeton for a reason. Always loved him and his personality/mustache (which he uses to promote his charities). Hope he's ok, that was a weird spill fersure.

I feel bad because I've always liked Parros, but why was he fighting Orr for the second time tonight?  Not really sure why this even happened.

Fighting regularly is a reliable means by which to reduce one's cognitive abilities.

This. He's not the guy I'm being the wings to sign or anything but he's as respectable of a goon as it gets ha. Hope him and that sweet 'stache of his have a quick recovery.

He was fighting Orr again because Orr was going after Subban.

Yup.

 

Parros was signed by Montreal to do exactly what he did last night - standing up for his teammates (not landing face 1st onto the ice).

The original play happened off screen.  Once they showed the tape, it was pretty nasty.  He seemed to be out cold for a few minutes, then he tried to get up and couldn't.  Really glad he didn't shatter his jaw or anything.  

CBC was muttering about how they needed to get fighting out of the game because of things like this.  If that's their logic, heck, they should take the ice out of the game.  That's the really dangerous part.


Can't wait to read the "Phoenix: I still think it's a hockey market" chapter of Gary Bettman's autobiography. I'm guessing it's going to be chapter 11.

2 things...

 

Studies should begin immediately on Parros' stache, and how it protected his face from fractures ;)

 

On a serious note - from what I gathered - it wasn't so much as if fighting needed to be removed from the game as much as it's purpose (Parros being 'hired' for exactly what he did last night - to fight, and jump in/stand up for his smaller more skilled teammates).

 

From what I recall they commented (mind you I had a few fermented malt beverages while watching) if a death had occurred due to a fight in an NHL game - then fighting would be banned...Until that takes place - fighting will have it's place in the game.

 

EDIT - and yes - Orr lost his balance, and inadvertently pulled Parros over causing him to land face 1st.

The part about "death" was just talking heads talking to fill time.

 

Parros had his helmet on, but went down face first.  They ran it slow-mo and you could see that he had his eyes closed expecting a punch and aimed for where Orr had been.  Since Orr had moved, he went over him and since his hands were tied up with Orr and punching, his face hit the ice without anything to stop it.

 

If anything, this will be evidence to support the need of a cage, but it was a freak accident.

Agreed.

He seemed like a character guy on and off the ice. Did some hilarious promos and great charity work in Anaheim.

Watching him fight on the Ducks, he was often flailing and fell down a lot. Parros has never had good balance during a fight and this was a terrible fluke.

I honestly don't think it'll happen in the next 5 or even 10 years, but it's starting to feel inevitable that fighting will be removed from hockey eventually.

Guy fell awkwardly. Could have happened after a hit, scrum, blowing a tire or any sort of hockey play. He'll be back soon.

I think we all have a new respect for the sturdiness of his chin at least.
