Yeah, I think he has had enough rest. Hopefully his brain will recover fully, he will enjoy time with his loved ones, realize the community and friends he has around him, and gets a clean bill if health to get started on training. Or perhaps he decides to go in another direction, but I hope he quickly puts this episode behind him, and seizes the day!
Glad he's out and about. Any idea of the affect this will have on his hockey career?
Is it scratched at this point, or is the possibility essentially the same as if he had sustained a season ending injury?
We don't even know if he can have a hockey career at this point.
But yes, in the best case scenario it'll be roughly equivalent to a player recovering from a serious, very long-term injury. If he can play, it will take him months, maybe years, to regain lost strength and form.
But of course hockey doesn't matter at this point, the only important thing is that Tim is healthy.
That's amazing. i almost forgot how close he seemed to be to succumbing to this awful infection. never forget his brother's tweet about him believing in him. really beautiful.
from what I've seen of his play, he might not be the strongest when it comes to finishing checks but he'll finish them and he's definitely feisty.
i don't know if you guys read that ticker twitter thing they have on habsprospects but Bozon's the only one of our prospects that I seen on there take himself to task for poor play. Remember numerous times he posted stuff like 'i suck' etc. you can tell he's hard on himself to succeed.
regardless of what happens to his career this is truly an amazing day. But I'm definitely in the camp in thinking this experience will help him become a better player.
So...in other words, "It will take him time to regain all that weight."
Basically, what I meant to say is that it's not the weight gaining thats going to hurt him. He'll get back to where he originally left off relatively quickly, despite how much he loss. Unlike someone who puts in years of hard work to put on new muscle to an already existing healthy frame. So yes. Time. but not really time. You drinking my sake, kimosabe?
Holy c*ap man. Great vid. Didn't comment much on the whole story. We've had quite too much meningitis stories back in high school.
Very scary stuff. Like sharing a cig with one guy and he's got meningitis a few days after. You just can't help but think that you were a close call. Completely random stuff. You don't realize when you're young how scary it actually is.
If Bozon fully recovers, there's nothing stopping him. That's a big to disease.
A trust fund has been established to assist the Bozon family with medical- and rehabilitation-related costs with which they now are faced.

You would think the Montreal Canadiens would pay for his medical costs-I guess not.As People might know Tom Galardi owns the Kamloops Blazers and Dalas Stars-his net worth is 800 million dollars.Yes I know Tim was traded to Kootney but just sayin
