This sucks, man.

I hope Deader feels better soon. Deader, we love you!

Deader missed the 3rd practice in a row. He still feels dizzy.

Quote:
Deadmarsh (concussion) missed his third consecutive practice with dizziness. He practiced six days in a row with the Kings before they left on their last trip. "He was making progress,' Murray said. "This is a setback.'

Allison

All the news here seem to be focusing on Deadmarsh, but is there any sign of Allison getting better? His comeback last year was awesome, and I'm hoping to see something similar this season.

I read on espn that Allison is due back in December or something like that. It is on our teams information page.

Don't expect to see either Allison or Deadmarsh play for the Kings this year. It's looking more likely their conditions can't improve enough for them to get back on the ice during a competitive game. Not what I want - but let's face reality.

I share your pessimism but, when asked if we had heard anything the article on espn did say that he is responding very well to his new medication and that if (there is the devil) he continues down this path he will be back faster than any of us expected.

I may not think the world of espn but I would call them as legitimate of a source as any.

I really hope the medication will work wonders for him. I know we were all optimistic about Deader's progress and then he has this set back. So, for now, I will not be excited about if the medication is working until I see Allison on the ice playing his game.

I don't want to jinx anything.

I'm sure if I drop Deader from my fantasy hockey team today, he will come back within the week.

I think the best thing for Deadmarsh is just take the year off (same as Lindros). Since Lindros has started playing for New York he's had no concussion related injuries in 2+ years. I think that when Eric had the entire season off in Philly it helped him improve medically.

Also, many in this thread talk about a the "concussion proof" helmet. Obviously, it's not fool-proof but it has seemed to work - most notably with Alyn McAuley. It was estimated that he had approx. 9 concussions in Junior while playing with the Ottawa 67's. He also had a couple with Jersey and Toronto. When in T.O. he switched to this new helmet and nothing has happened to him in over 2 years, so it does help.

i have to admit, i'd completely given up on him and was ready to ship him to the pueget sound scallywags for a stickbag and some pucks. not that he's better by any means, but that's the first good allison news in a LONG time.

That is great news! However, I'm not going to do what I did with Deadmarsh. I will believe it when I see him on the ice playing his game. I don't want to jinx anything!!!!

But seriously, this is awesome. I'm glad the medication is helping him. It says he hasn't been himself for the past 8 or 9 months! Wow, I feel terrible that he hasn't felt like himself. There's also another story in the Daily News that I will find and post here. It says that he's optimistic about returning. He'll need about a month of practice before he plays a game.

It's been depression, insomnia, memory problems ... you're just 'off.' You're really irritable. You feel like a different person. That's why I'm most optimistic and I know this is working, because the symptoms aren't as bad, and I feel more like myself.

"I'm hoping that in the next few weeks, I can feel close to back to normal and we can move on with this thing."

More important than Allison's mood is the fact that over the past week, he has been able to push himself in practice without feeling the symptoms as intensely. Allison said once the symptoms disappear, he will need up to a month of practice before he can play.

The hope is that over the next few weeks, the medication will completely balance Allison's serotonin level. That could be tricky, because the medication causes fatigue, and doctors need to find the right balance as Allison attempts to get in game shape.
