His game was definitely off. I wonder how long he's had this concussion. This tweet jumps out at me:
If you think of it logically we might have saved his life. Even if he doesn't play again, the crowd noise and lights showed a concussion that the doctors missed. Of course we didn't cause it, and I don't think he was hit hard that game. Just shows that concussions can be shifty and don't always show up. They need to improve the science for concussions.
I really hope that wasn't the last game he plays. Pronger is a beast to play against. Just about the worst way to go out.
Yea, he shouldn't have played that game. You could tell he was out of it.
