I didn't know the Wings had scouted Edler and just missed getting him b/c Vancouver traded up

I can't believe Canucks fans are whining about a schlub like Rome being suspended. He severely concussed Boston's 2nd best forward on a pretty late hit. Horton had his head down so he won't get many sympathy cards for that.

The big point here is that it was a vicious hit to a defenceless player's head and the league's made it clear they want to eliminate those hits. Horton's got brain damage now. The long term effects may be mild but don't doubt that concussions like this can have long term repercussions.


Horton was not defenseless, his head should have been up and aware of his surroundings after he made the pass. Horton seem to get hurt when his head hit the ice not from the actual hit which seemed to start from the upper body up to the chin - Rome had barely a second a full lateral speed to change course. Let's also not forget also it all began with Thornton chirping relentlessly at Rome on the bench. A one game suspension would have been acceptable, and it would be a shame that a player who has no history of head hunting or intending to inflict serious injury on opponents could miss an opportunity to celebrate every NHL players dream moment with his teammates. Rome's hit was late.

btw I had no idea Horton has been diagnosed with brain damage.

All said I hope there are no long term effects to Horton.
