Man that is too sad. I always find it so weird how different brain injuries are for different people. Look at the Sauer hit, now, by no means was it a light hit but I've seen worse ones. Also, Sauer never lost consciousness and basically left the ice on his own accord. You would never suspect a career ending injury. Yet I watched Prucha and Anisimov get their clocks absolutely cleaned 4 times a game and they were fine. Or for example the 2nd Crosby concussion, it looked like absolutely nothing and he was out for a lonnnng time. Brain injuries are so scary, I really wish the best for Michael Sauer and his future. I can't imagine a much more debilitating injury.
