I'm more comfortable with the lineup they've been icing since he went down than I would be with Horton back in there, to be honest.
Out of curiousity, when was it determined he wasn't ready to start the year?

It's my opinion that he came back too soon.

Me too, here`s my first hand experience with Concussions (of which I have now sustained 2).

They are confounding, and I have done what many others have, just when I have started to feel like "my old self", I begin to resume my old day to day routines, maybe it`s something as simple as taking the dog for an hour walk, playing a round of golf carrying my clubs as I do etc....

And while I feel fine immediately afterwards, my Neurologist stated that it was due to my resumption of normal activities that I have prolonged concussion symptoms, I think this is more than possible for have happened to Savvy (not a doctor but...), anyone here who watched him play post concussion saw what I saw, a guy who looked nothing like the pre-Savvy, slower (not that he was ever a burner), hand eye off a ton, and ability to react quick enough to avoid direct contact wasn`t there either.

he admitted he didn't feel himself at all and was playing timidly with the concussion in the back of his mind...

Saw him after the game last night and he looked like his usual self, happy and smiling ear to ear.

Glad they shut him down. Rest up and get ready for September.

Not one bit shocking, I was the same and trust me, my day to day activities are hardly comparable to playing against elite athlete`s in a physical sport for a living.

I`m sure he`s disappointed, but this is what is best for the Husband/Father, hockey has to take the back seat to overall quality of life IMO

That's too bad. First Savard, now Horton. This team has such bad luck with head injuries.

This is not unexpected and I think they made the right decision. His well being is too important to risk and he is too important to the Bruins to risk as well....Unfortunately it leaves the Bruins with a slot they cannot fill but some things take precedence.

This article brings no new information to light, and is largely just conjecture. The title of this thread is also misleading.

I don't think shutting him down is the best thing to do. If we make the finals he will likely be back by then. I also would consider dressing him if he wasn't ready to return if he hit a game 7 situation at home. Let him play the powerplay and opening shift.

With all due respect, if the Bruins find themselves in a Game 7 at home, you have Horton waive a flag or lead the audience with a "love that dirty water" intro or something.

The last thing you do is dress a guy who's not ready just for ceremony or as some sort of a "pump up". That sort of thing bites you on the ass later in the game when you wish you could role 4 lines.

I remember him specifically saying he wasn't feeling any symptoms and his struggles at the beginning of the year were more psychological than anything. Waiting a whole extra year to come back probably wouldn't have changed that.

How to ruin a 9 year old's day. Horton is my niece's favorite player. Oh well, guess she'll join my older two and adopt Seguin as her favorite now.

That sucks but I am not shocked.

Hope he is ready for next year and never gets hurt again.

I sometimes feel as though we discredit positive medical direction though, too - I mean, taking Sid as an example, there's no way he would have returned unless it was deemed medically safe. If it was deemed medically safe for Nathan, I'd assume that was based on as sound medical principle as if it was deemed better to shut him down.

If he's ready, by all means, bring him back.

Not going to say I'm surprised.

Why I found it hard to listen to lectures all season a/b slew foots, low hits, and other crap. As long as Sid the kid is ok, right?

If our luck ever changes, we'll get to compete for the Cup w/ all of our best players. We can dream.

Horton deserved better.

Let's try something for a change. Let's thank the guy who saw this on a ticker, and took the time to post it -- instead of trying to give him a guilty conscience for being a rumour monger.

This place relies on timely news, not negative ninny's who bring nothing.

The World's atwitter people, and this shocks no one. Much like the fact that Corvo won't be hear next year.

I heard from a mutual friend of Horton's two weeks ago, that he won't be back this year. Your want my source?

Okay then, how bout um lemme see...No.

I feel positive about his recovery though. He's able to sit in the 9th floor and watch the games, he came to cuts for a cause, so he's okay in that retrospect. I fully expect him to come back next year 100% okay. It sucks he's out for the season. He's missed.

Don't forget about Bergy. Concussions basically ruined 2 years for him and it's only been the last 2-3 years that we've seen the real Bergy come back

"But there was no new news on Horton."

"No, still the same," said Julien. "He’s working out off the ice, but still hasn’t been cleared to step on the ice."

http://www.tsn.ca/blogs/darren_dreger/?id=391779

"Hi Darren, do you know the latest status of Nathan Horton? Will he be back for the playoffs?

"A: Nathan Horton's status for the playoffs remains unchanged. The Bruins are hopeful, but Horton is still suffering from concussion symptoms such as some minor dizziness. However, he has been exercising vigorously, getting his heart rate up, etc., so there is some reason for optimism."

I feel much better that Horton isn't totally shelved at least he can workout. Nathan won't play in the playoffs if doesn't feel right regardless if he is cleared or not, it's his choice.

I hope Horton comes back and has a great year next season that way he can get paid well when he's a UFA.
