Looking at the hits Bourque took in FLA, I suspect that is where the concussion happened. Especially the 2nd hit they show.
That was informative. Based on the protocol it describes, Diaz's gym workouts show he's able to sustain some degree of cardio elevation, but symptoms reoccur when he pushes it further. The healing process has begun, which is good, but there's no way to know if he's weeks or months away from being able to skate at full speed. Depends if his current workouts involve working up a real sweat or merely walking on a treadmill.

If he's not back on skates within two weeks it's a safe bet he won't be back this season.
