I loved Sauers game and he was a great kid off the ice also. Hate that a kid who worked so hard got hurt playing his game

I mean, you blindly ignored the most important part of my post which was the main reason Sauer is hurt.

He did not have his chin strap properly secured and wore it too loose which resulted in his helmet flying off and his head hitting the glass.

You blame Phaneuf's hit for that? It was a perfectly clean, legal hit.

You might not like the hit personally, but don't let your misguided opinion skew the reality of why Michael Sauer is hurt. The blame is not put on Dion Phaneuf for that, if anything its Sauer's fault for not wearing his helmet properly.

This is hockey, its a violent game. People get hurt. Perhaps you should watch something less physical such as golf?

Too bad we would have had the best top 4 in the league

It's been a full year already? Very sad. Hope he can recover to the point where he can live a normal healthy life. Same for Savard and Pronger.

These guys play to win and are paid to win, not to make sure their opponent is in good health.

Sucks it happened and sucks it happened to Sauer who was quickly becoming a staple on our blue line, but things happen in contact sports. Doesn't make Phaneuf a "jackass" or a "dick", it makes him a guy doing his job for his team.

Were you up in arms when Staal laid Stajan the **** out a few seasons ago? I doubt it since it didn't adversely impact the Rangers. You, like most other Ranger fans, were most likely defending Staal for making a clean, enormous hit that - just unfortunately - sent Stajan back to the Middle Ages.

Scary to read some of these stories and experiences people are going through, suffering with PCS...

I agree with you, but I know we are in the minority.

That said, even if the hit is totally clean, from the "crunch" you could hear in the 300s I was sitting in, it was clear that Sauer would be in a world of trouble. Would have liked to see the boys give Phaneuf some push-back. I would think if I were Sauer it would feel good to know that my teammates took exception to the hit. Obviously nothing Bertuzzi-like, but a good, clean fight.

How often have the Bruins done that for their teammates? And it always looks to me like the right thing to do.

Like I asked the other poster, is Marc Staal a jackass/dirty player/*******/whatever for laying the hit he did on Stajan? Stajan could barely stand on his own and when he tried, he almost fell flat on his face. Stajan almost slammed his head on the ice sans helmet as well, which could have had that situation play out very differently. Or do you regard that hit as a clean hockey play because someone on your team was on the giving end?

Leafs fan, coming in peace. Was just going through old Leaf highlights on YouTube and ended up watching this hit again and it struck me right away that I hadn't seen Sauer back on the Rangers since, nor could I remember hearing any news about him. While I loved the hit and maintain my belief that it was 100% clean, I feel terrible for what's happened to Sauer's career and hope he makes a full recovery at some point.

Dion has never been a dirty player and I don't believe there was any intent to injure on his part. Just a horrible consequence of playing such a physical sport. Best of luck this season, guys.

The hit on Sauer doesn't make Phaneuf a jackass. Other events have elevated him to that level.

So is Sauers concussion officially the longest?

You had to think it would be a ranger

there are the concussions that lead to retirement. those are technically longer. Of course Jeff Beukeboom was indeed a Ranger. He had symptoms well after he retired.

Mike Richter being the most notable Ranger who had to retire because of multiple concussions/PCS.

Pat Lafontaine also took the concussion train to retirement as a Ranger

I am not sure how legit Rant sports is but I saw this blurb earlier today
Quote:
Right now it doesnít seem like Sauer will be in a Rangers uniform anytime in the near future with his
career in doubt at this point. Nothing, not even a professional hockey career, is worth the long-term risk that might come with his taking the ice again. Of course, that is up to Sauer who is trying to make it back. However, the Rangers staff wonít clear him until he is absolutely symptom free. Given the light that has been shed on the seriousness of concussions recently one canít really argue with the caution Sauer and the Rangers are taking.

His older brother's career ended the same way. I see Mike Sauer's future in hockey as off-the-ice.
