Yeah and George Paros, who was widely considered the smartest man in hockey, can do pretty much anything he wants now that he’s no longer playing hockey. EXCEPT MAYBE HE CAN’T BECAUSE HE MIGHT END UP WITH JELLO FOR BRAINS NOW BECAUSE OFf****** FIGHTING IN THE NHL.
A buddy of mine who is turning 21 can't play contact hockey anymore after having way to many concussions and NOT a single one came from fighting. He got them all from getting hit. People saying that concussions in the NHL is straight from fighting is ridiculous and should probably just go watch girls hockey.
I was at a bar and every Canadian said that goal wasn't a goal and shouldn't count, but it did. I highly doubt you will find another Canadian that disagrees with you. However saying US didn't play their best, well Canada didn't either then I guess?
No you are not alone. I was wondering the same thing and most Canadians were happy that he wasn't on the ice. Eichel looked to be extremely selfish out there and seemed like he was just trying to be a hero instead of worrying about tying the game.
What I mean by US not playing there best is they looked very nervous, hence why the D made brutal turnovers that lead to the empty nets.
I think it's time to say Larkin is better then Eichel right now and I wonder if Eichel is realizing that? I don't know why you would take Larkin off the ice, doesn't make sense.
Gordie Howe “Mr. Hockey” Makes an Amazing Recovery
Following the press coverage of our father’s deteriorating medical condition, the Howe Family was contacted in late November by Dr. Maynard Howe, (CEO) and Dave McGuigan (VP) of Stemedica Cell Technologies. McGuigan knew our family as a result of his previous employment with the Detroit Red Wings. Stemedica is a biotechnology company that manufactures allogeneic adult stem cells in its US government licensed, cGMP facility in San Diego, California. Although no relation, Dr. Howe and his brothers Drs. David and Roger are hockey players and big Gordie Howe fans, having grown up in Minnesota. They wished to help our father by generously facilitating Dad’s participation in a stem cell clinical trial at Novastem, a licensed distributor of Stemedica’s products in Mexico.
Novastem is currently conducting federally licensed and Institutional Review Board approved clinical trials for several medical conditions, including stroke, using Stemedica’s stem cell products. At the time we were contacted, Mr. Hockey had been rapidly declining and was essentially bedridden with little ability to communicate or to eat on his own.
After reviewing the information on Stemedica and Novastem, our family decided to give our father this opportunity. On December 8th, Mr. Hockey underwent a two-day, non-surgical treatment at Novastem’s medical facility. The treatment included neural stem cells injected into the spinal canal on Day 1 and mesenchymal stem cells by intravenous infusion on Day 2. His response was truly miraculous. At the end of Day 1 he was walking with minimal effort for the first time since his stroke. By Day 2 he was conversing comfortably with family and staff at the clinic.
On the third day, he walked to his seat on the plane under his own power. By Day 5 he was walking unaided and taking part in helping out with daily household chores. When tested, his ability to name items has gone from less than 25% before the procedure to 85% today. His physical therapists have been astonished. Although his short term memory, strength, endurance and coordination have plenty of room for improvement, we are hopeful that he will continue to improve in the months to come.
As a family, we are thrilled that Dad’s quality of life has greatly improved, and his progress has exceeded our greatest expectations. Once again, we cannot emphasize how much you have fueled Mr. Hockey’s recovery and we thank everyone for their continued prayers and support.
