That said, I hope he can live a normal life after hockey. post concussion syndrome is nothing to laugh at. If he is still having issues then I really, really would be shocked if he comes back. If he doesnt come back I am honored that I got to watch the guy play the game the way he played it. For my team. There is a reason why every fanbase that has had him on their team loved him. Now we all know.
Basically this is dead on.

Although considering how long and drawn out this whole BRAIN INJURY thing has been, I'd be ok with him not risking another injury. This kind of thing is cumulative, and I don't want to see what the next injury does to him.
