“I feel a lot better. I was in a really dark place maybe not the first month because you think it’s going to get better. But then when it doesn’t get better, you start wondering.”
“Certainly the message the last month was he wanted to play,” said Red Wings’ GM Ken Holland. “He told us a couple weeks ago he felt great and was on the right path. If we advanced in the playoffs he was hoping he’d be available. Then he had a bit of a setback.
“People with concussions it’s hard to know, but the hope is over the summer he gets 100 percent healthy.”
As for his future in the game, both Franzen and Holland are unsure if the Wings’ forward will play again.
“I don’t think anybody knows,” Holland said. “When you’re dealing with people that have concussions and he’s (had) a bit of a history. That’s a decision that’ll be determined between Mule and Dr. (Jeffrey) Kutcher.”
Added Franzen: “I have no clue, but I’m just happy I’m feeling better. Hopefully, it’s going to progress a little bit every week and I will be fine.”
Poor guy, glad to hear he's doing better.
The article also mentions that he'll likely stay on LTIR if he decides to stop playing.
As mentioned before, I hope he hangs them up just for his long term health and his children's sake
