Maybe they got much worse because he played a game? I mean concussions are MORE than a topic of discussion these days. You would have to think that the Rangers would be extra careful about brain injuries after dealing with Staals and Sauers.... Especially with Nash, your new star player.
Unless Nash lied to the Rangers and said it was something else, and now he's paying for it. Might be a reason why they are so tight-lipped?
Whatever the case, this sucks. Injuries are part of the game, but all of these concussions... Damn. How many players were playing with them in the 80's and 90's (or any era for that matter) and didn't know it? Is this just a phenomenon based on our increased diagnosis ability or has the game and its players changed that much? It's out of control.
Seems like 20% of the injuries now are concussions
