While caution should rule the day, I think I'll defer to the doctors for the medical evaluations. No doctor is going to sign off on him playing again unless there is literally extraordinary rationale to consider it.
doctors are making big strides with concussion treatments and he seems to be coming along well. Bobby clarke always thought he retired early and if chris wants to play I think they'll give him every opportunity. I don't think its this year though. I think of him as the guy on comp whos been cleared for light duty hes around hes just not all that useful
I'm talking to Panotch on twitter and I'm actually having to explain the 10% buffer on the cap. He then says 'you have to have a plan to get back under'. Yes, Pronger going on LTIR!
How does he have a major hockey writing job?
Well technically the offseason (where you get the 10% cushion) and the day after the first game of the season aren't minutes away from each other.....soooooo yeah someone would have to be "sent down" (on paper) if this current roster sticks.
