Sauer started light workouts on December 19 which is 13 days after the concussion. He saw the Rangers medical staff on December 21. It was quiet until last week when Torts said Sauer was working out and had a good week the previous week. When he is going to start skating?It took Staal 2 weeks to resume skating after 2 weeks on exercising. Looking at the calendar,Sauer has been symptom free for 3 weeks.
Beautiful. The team defense is so strong it hasn't really suffered with Sauer out of the lineup, but his underrated outlet passes have been missed. He helps move the team into transition. Looking foward to seeing him back in the lineup.
I got a concussion about 2 months ago in my men's league. I dove on a defensive play to knock the puck off the stick of a player on a breakaway, then slid into the boards. My lower back hit first, then whipped my head back into the boards. I still get headaches ater playing. It hasn't stopped me from playing though, as they normally go away within an hour or so. On the drive home after it happened, I couldn't focus on anything. I nearly had to pull off the road twice on a ten minute drive. I definitely feel for these guys. They probably have it 10x worse than I did, simply due to the speed and ferocity of the game. I've been a little forgetful at times, but nothing like these guys who can't leave their rooms because of the light.
I'd keep Bickel in the line-up and let Eminger be the 7th (or rotate Eminger & Bickel in and out of the line-up).... Don't really care what happens to Woywitka & Stralman.... Both did a nice job but it's a numbers game and neither of these 2 have any future with the organization.
