We don't know that. There are really no compareables.

No way Sauer sits out this long 10-15 years ago. I've seen Kenny Jönsson and Nicklas Wallin to Sweden recently. KJ probably has the record in concussions, like 15 of them. 4-5 in which he is laid out cold. One in the Olympic Finals in 94' and I remember the reports of him feeling really bad after it, he played like 16 years after that. Wallin had concussion problems, was laid out cold last season. Returned after 3-4 days or something like that. Had problems now in the summer and has retired.

Go back to like 96', more or less players with 6-7 concussions only had problems. Now everyone is out a long time. I am not saying that it's something wrong with that, I am sure it's the opposite.

But, I am fairly positive that these kids will be able to come back and getting more problems is no lock.
