Grossmann took two hits to the head on the same shift he has a concussion deal with it and to talk down about him shows your not to bright.and injuries are part of the gm everyone else deals with it so must we.

Apparently he is a possibility for tomorrow. Most reporters say he participated in regular practice and is day to day. I mean didn't Voracek come back like 4 days later after a head shot? Some concussions are worse than others.
Coburn, Carle = 25+ mins
Timonen, Grossmann = 20+ mins
Gus = 15mins
Lilja = 10mins
Gus looked sharp last game. You can bet the Penguins will be hitting our defense hard all game tomorrow... so hopefully Grossmann doesn't get killed again. If the Flyers lose tomorrow, I think it'll be very, very hard to win game 7.
You know what? We are gonna see Grossmann out there. One one side I am glad to have him on the ice... I mean who wouldn't be.... but on the other side... man that is just wrong, you don't mess with concussions.
Even as big of a game this is, I don't think the Flyers would let him play if he was still in pain. If he's playing then he's good to go.
This or they just take the risk knowing that Mesz may be close enough to fill in for round 2...
No 2 concussions are the same. It seems to be crucial to sit out right after they occur.
Do they have to shut a player down until he is symptom free? I don't know... experts are in charge to make the decisions. They better don't trust on the player to decide when to play - it already cost them in case of Bourdon. Players always want to be back on the ice, especially if it's their first playoff run.
While it pains me to not see him play since we need him badly...if he is not feeling good he def should not play especially against this Pitt team of gutless cheap artists. They will be targeting him every shift with head shots and then Grossmann and Pronger will be living in their dark closets...
