He sprang up quickly and unassisted after 45 seconds of laying facedown and not responding to trainers. Soccer-esque.
Again...I don't care if Shanahan doesnt cite that.
You might have a point if he came back into the game, but he didn't and you guys came back and almost won because of it. You should be happy he didn't snap right back up because you'd be one point shy in the standings if he did.
I've met Keith back in BC. Is in no way, shape or form a fighter. Don't know why people are so adamant he fight, that's not his game. Like saying Bouwmeester has to fight. Not gonna happen. It's not in every player's repitoire.
I agree, but if you are going to be dirty...you live by the sword and die by the sword.
In all fairness though, if Hossa gets that rattled after an elbow/forearm to the back of his helmet, should he really be playing right now? Imagine if he takes an elbow or something to the face, where he doesn't have protection...
Dude had a serious concussion in last years playoffs and gets blindsided in the back of the head. You think he's going to spring up and be ready to go, or maybe be a little cautious considering? Man, this place is clueless sometimes.
I'll leave the convo after this response.
Tarasenko had prior concussion history, his eyes were rolled back in his head and the first instinct was to try and get up.
I think he'd try and get up and go to the quiet room. Now we know he wasn't concussed and is 100% good to go.
Not a fan of motionless laying on the ice, when you're not unconscious. Get up, take the stride and a half needed to get to the bench and see the doctor.
