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.
The problem with Sauer's recent one is that his helmet came off before his head hit the dasher.
