The worst part is if you get a second serious one, it is seismic. It's not just twice as bad. It is over.

Big risk.
Hopefully for us Stoll is more in the ilk of Roenick who can still come back and perform after not just one, bust SEVERAL concussions. Granted he never was as good as he was early in his career, but not a disaster career crippled by concussions.
