guys guys guys. knowing that you are A LOT more prone to have a second concussion after the first couple of months after a 1st one, if this would be how it plays, would you play him:
chances of bergeron having another concussion, april this year: 50%
chances chances of bergeron having another concussion, in september: 10%
do you play him?

Bonjour Habsland,

apologies for trespassing on your board, but I wanted to clear up a couple things regarding Bergeron. We've had months on the Bs board to discuss many of the points brought up in this thread, including the fear of rushing Bergy back and risking his career.

First, to the analagies to Lindros and Gagne: the Flyers have a bad record with mishandling concussions, and the Bruins (for however many other faults they may have) are not the Flyers. The B's have not rushed Bergeron at any stage of the process, and took the extra step of consulting with concussion specialists in Buffalo about new therapies. Once he's been medically cleared to play, it shouldn't make a difference to his chance of subsequent concussion whether he hits the ice immediately, or 6 months later.

He lost between 10 - 15 pounds (not 25), and has gained back about 1/2 that. He said he's finding it hard to gain back the rest. So, while he's thinner, nobody who's seen him in person lately has described him as frail.

though he was just cleared for full contact practices, he's been participating in team practices for a couple weeks, and has been on the ice for 6 weeks or so. he said that much of the time was spent practicing with Manny Fernandez, so his shot shouldn't be too rusty.

here's to a good series! for any of you coming to Boston for game 3, look for me before the game at the Penalty Box bar, across from the arena. I'll have a carnation pinned to the empty sleeve of my Lucic jersey, and a B's logo sewn onto my eyepatch. maybe I'll buy you a drink.

If he's cleared ans ready to play and he opted to play then he will be treated like everyone else. That is, he can be hit and he will be hit. Actually, there is no doubt the opposite team will go an extra step to hit him to test him out. Just as if he's back from a foot, hip, rib, groin, shoulder injury. That's why teams hid/fabricate their injury report. It's going for ages.

As long as it's a clean hard hit, hopefully, Bruins fans won't scream murder.

BTW, P. Bergeon is no angel himself. He's based a large portion of his game on the physical aspect. So he wouldn't (shouldn't) expect anything less.

I don't think you can compare someone who was healthy and in shape with someone who was almost paralyzed and couldn't train for weeks.

I wouldn't be surprised if that is game three in boston.
Didnt the Flyers have the same assumption for Lindros????

As much as a blow it is to us, I'm glad he's back, it'll make the series more interesting.

I'd rather have a 6-7 game series than a 4 game sweep any day.

We're all glad to hear that.

Hope he recovers completely. That said.. if you don't think he's rusty and/or weaker at this point, then good for you.

Good luck the rest of the way. And by all means, have fun on the Bruins board.

Good for Bergeon. He's a good young player. That said, I am sure he now can take a clean hard hit as the ones he often dished out and Bruins fans won't cry and scream for murder.

Why the exclamation marks in the title? I don't give a **** about Bergeron, we'll win in 4-5 anyway. I hope Komisarek destroys him.

With or Without Bergeron Claude Julien will have a good strategy and game plan set for the series. This will be a hard fought series. Im sure the Bruins have alot of Pride in their dressing room. Wipe out that 8-0 record against them. Its a new Season. Lets Hope Jesus Price make God Gainey look Heavenly!!!!

The amount of 1 hit wonders this team has had between the piped in the last 15 years in incredible.

I predict Thomas implodes next year. Following the examples of Blue, Dafoe, Raycroft and co.

What you all have to realize about Bergeron coming back is, it's just as safe as waiting until next year. They said they'd bring him back at 100% - regardless of when it happened. This means that 100% in the playoffs is the same condition as 100% next year when the season starts.

Because some people are actually fans of hockey and glad to see young talented player back.. just like many fans of other teams were happy to see S. Koivu back.

It's not only about winning.

Talk about insecurity.
Yeah it's like if we were reading a good book and mosquitos would comeby, but we're too concentrated to slap them or use repelent. For them it's more like if they were alone naked in the wood and each of us would be lurking big hairy sex thirsty love making machine.
