I remember posters either here or at lgk relaying the incident between Stumpel and Deadmarsh at that practice. That was after the Johnson kneeing incident. The point really is that he was damaged goods by that point. His brain couldn't take any more trauma and even if Stumpel and he hadn't collided, he wouldn't have lasted beyond the next hard hit he received.

He was cheated out of a lot, but he also experienced a lot of great things. Really glad to see him on the ice again in that clip. He was meant to be back in hockey in some fashion.
