The fact that he was allowed to skate is an excellent sign. Nobody would let him near the ice if they thought he had a severe concussion.
You can continue freaking out and assuming the worst, I'll look at things un-biased and infer what I can.
As I said, the fact that he was allowed to skate is an excellent sign.
The fact that he will be re-evaluated Thursday is another excellent sign. Notice how Pronger is going to see a specialist while Giroux is being re-evaluated every 2 days? That should give you some insight into which one is more serious.
Well to be fair it's only his first baseline skate and he didn't exactly pass with flying colors. Nothing wrong with being optimistic though. I think the team continuing to win will help Giroux's healing process believe it or not. Just a hunch especially since Giroux has pretty strong will power as well.
