The concussion issue is real and with all that we know about them now, he remains susceptible to another, more severe concussion.

Granted, he may never receive another concussion in his life, but playing a physical game, playing a physical position the odds are that he will get hit hard enough to receive another concussion.

He's healthy today. But the unfortunate truth is that could change in one shift. Yes, that could be said for every player, but the odds are greater for those that have already suffered one, to suffer another.
I don't really think that the odds ARE that he is going to get another concussion. MANY players around the league have concussions and come back and never have one again...

Concussions are different in the way they effect each individual. At any point there is a chance just ONE concussion can end a career..... just look at Michael Sauer unfortunately.

I don't really think its fair to put a "state of fear" on Staal that he could get a concussion with every hit he takes.... That only applied to Lindros haha
