It's all about the plane travel. From what I see, it's better to avoid plane travel shortly after a concussion. Probably has something to do with air pressure or acceleration maybe

too bad for loui and the team, he was starting to gel real nice with bergeron. seemed like every shift was spent in the offensive zone, cycling. hopefully it ain't too serious.

Reading some posts on the main board and a select few teams boards about the hit is making my blood boil.

Absolutely ridiculous.

Right you are. It's a bleeding concern. Similar to how you can't fly after surgery. Pressure could complicate a bleed (worse case in his brain) and let's face it, a plane is not where you want to experience a medical emergency even if the flight is short.

My guess is he hadn't been released when the team left Buffalo (and they weren't going to stay and wait).

It's also likely that they didn't want him in a plane right after a hit to the head for a variety of reasons.

Pierre probably volunteered to help out-the people in the business know each other and Pierre seems the type to like having the story about hat time he helped Louie out.

Not sure about being by himself-I would think somebody from the team staff would have stayed as well but then maybe not. It didn't help that the Bruins needed to he back quick for a second half of a back to back.

Hit looked bad but who knows how bad the concussion will be or how Lon he will be out. Hopefully he doesn't miss too many games.

Good to know he is on his way home.

Hopefully his symptoms don't last long and he is back in action soon.

I am curious if Shanahan will make his decision based on how bad the injury is to Loui. Hopefully not.

Could definitely be a lot worse.

Get well soon! Give him as much time as he needs to rest up.

Defending a goon who threw an insanely dirty hit to a star crosses the line on justifying a hockey trade.

I love the "admiring his dump" argument. When you're still on your shift, you're supposed to follow your dump-in so you can get in good offensive or defensive position. Someone shouldn't be setting up for a blindside hit after he dumps the ****ing puck in the zone.

I think severity of the injury is always taken into account. However I think most of the recent suspensions have involved injury (seems like one of them-kaleta's maybe-didn't involve a significant injury).

Hoping Louie has a quick recovery-concussions suck.

****. Yet not unexpected. He's lucky he wasn't carried out on a stretcher after that hit.

Take your time Loui and come back only when you are ready.

could that be any more vague of an injury update? how bad is the concussion? Indefinitely could mean he is back in a couple weeks if he feels better.

damn that sucks...

That line was just starting to really click. I figured a few more games and it would be a real potent threat offensively.

fwiw, McLoed's hit on Kronwall looked worse and he had to be stretchered off the ice. He was out less than a week...

Indefinitely.. I hate that word. You never know with concussions, so frustrating for the victim and the fans. As someone said with Kronwall, could be a week. Could be a lot more.

He's able to move and was able to fly home, that's a good place to start. Let him take his time.
