I'm always 50/50 on whether to take you seriously or not. With the former option in mind I'd like to point out that Larkin and McDavid are playing big minutes. You want to play Athanasiou on the 4th line. Silly. In fact, that mentality makes "an-ath-of-you".
Did you pay attention when Franzen said retirement was something he wasn't considering?
So because his symptoms are back and he's being placed on IR as a precaution, he's absolutely donzo? Please, he will sit until his symptoms are gone again, and then he will play. I remember when Crosby was going through this same thing.
People are acting like he got rocked with concussion #1000 or something lol that's not the case
I didn't say he was for sure done but it doesn't look good. Franzen has been very stubborn throughout this whole concussion ordeal. The thing with these head injuries is its totally on the person who's having them to call the shots, theres no way of a doctor telling if he can or can't play because theres only "symptoms"
If he just sat out (8 months?) and comes back for 2 games and doesn't even get hit and hes facing symptoms again, what's going to happen when he actually gets hit in the fastest game in the world?
Pronger's and Savard's symptoms never went away and it doesn't seem like Mule's will either. These things just tend to get worse...
Why is this it for him? He didn't sustain another concussion. I assume he'll be lacing them up as soon as his concussion symptoms are gone again. That could be sooner, rather than later. He's on regular IR.
Have you been paying attention to concussions for the past 10 years?
He missed 1/3 of last season from symptoms (from a tap to the chin) and complained of symptoms all off season
Came back for 2 games (with seemingly minimal contact) and hes out again. It does NOT look good for mule.
