Hockey gets the back burner again. Could you imagine if this was baseball or football? The reporters would be making calls with everyone to get an injury update. No practice today means the beat writers have the day off.
I would be utterly shocked if he didn't get a concussion. He got so messed up so badly on that play. Is it me or does anyone else feel their hatred of the Leafs growing more? They have been such a pain for us this season.
I would be suprised if he did not suffer a concussion. He got a shoulder to the chin with enough force to dislodge his helmet and make it fly about 6 feet in the air, and then he hit his head on the dasher boards on the way down. He got absolutely demolished
Can some one please tell me what I missed? Didn't see anything on twitter about this and missed a few parts of the 2nd and 3rd periods. I don't get the MSG hush hush BS though.
Sauer stepped up in the offensive zone and kind of had his head down and Phaneuf drilled him, popping Sauer's helmet off and he hit the back of his head on the lip of the boards as he was falling down... Luckily he did not also hit his head on the ice on the way down as well... He looked a little dazed getting up, then left the ice to go to the locker room....
Wearing the helmet like a frigging frisbee is so stupid. Use the strap to its function dammit. I'm not saying Sauer would've automatically been healthier if he had the helmet on, but it sure enough isn't helping flying 6 foot off the ice.
Sauer displayed perfectly it's not only the impact that is the killer, the actual landing can be more dangerous, especially without a helmet.
Read lips. MDZ told Jim Ramsey his "lower back" was sore when MSG showed MDZ on the bench and Ramsey talking to him. He said he was fine after the game.
Sauer suffered 2 concussions while he was in junior. He suffered one during the summer of 2006 at the US WJC camp. He had another one right after that one. Saw a skull readjustment specialist in Texas. No problems since then.
