Don't know. These things are odd--it's not always the biggest hits, but the unexpected contact that seems to generate the problems.

I'm only partly assuaged by Holmgren's comments. I hope they take an uncharacteristically cautious approach. I'd rather Roo miss the next two or three games and give himself a week to make sure he's right than come back too soon and leave himself vulnerable long-term.
Just saw it on the highlights. I didn't look that bad to me, Simmonds got him but it didn't look like a full force collision, more of a glancing blow. Not to be taken lightly but I was more worried, having read about it online than I was after seeing it.
