If that wasn't a concussion per se, he sure looked like a guy that got his bell rung.

I think you played the game, and if you have I am sure you have seen that a bunch of times, I know I have. I don't think saying that Clowe was concussed at least the 2nd go around is wild speculation at all, I would say it is a veritable certainty.

We don't know **** yet but **** a guy getting two separate concussions within a couple weeks is not a guy I would want to commit a lot of years or $ to--especially one whose game revolves around playing as physical as Clowe does. In the NHL cap world of today there is little room for too many big money-long term mistakes--at least if you want your team to be successful.

At the end of the day I basically agree with you guys. "Over the top speculation" may have been too strong of a wording choice. It definitely looks like at least one concussion, and if that is the case it's not a good thing at all.
