Flyers' Hackett has Positional Vertigo

Good thing we didn't sign him. Hope he's OK though!

He wasn't going to resign in Boston anyway. He tore into the Bruins when he signed here.

Isn't that what Nick Esasky had?

and do you recover from it? that's like an inner ear equilibrium thing that to my knowledge they don't have a "fix" for...

Nick Esasky got some form of Vertigo right after leaving Boston as well. He never played baseball again. Not sure if this is the same kind. I really wish him well with this.

It is indeed what Nick Esasky had.

A real shame, because Esasky had a heck of a season for the Sox that year.

My wife has it too, and it is no joke. When an attack hits, if you don't have your meds, you are literally dead in the water. Can't move. I was deployed to Kuwait when her first attack hit about six years ago, and it was a scary thing for her to go through because she had no family or anyone there to take care of her. Luckily, the army is a close-knit organization and my CO's wife got her to the hospital, but speaking from personal experience, it is an awful condition to have to suffer through.

If Hackett has this, and it depends on the severity, he could be on the shelf for quite a while.

Well, the feelings were mutual.

Kirk;

Gotta say that you nailed that call. Looking back, I recall one of the only times I felt you missed the call; You weren't a big Hackett backer while I was happy to have him. Now I'm happy not to have him. I should have never doubted you.

Next time you're in T.0., I owe you a cold Alexander Keith's.

Thanks, Gonzo.

My buddy, Tim introduced me to Keith's Pale India Ale and it is easily my favorite brew. Wish I could get some down here...

I wanted Hackett to be the guy here, but he wasn't a good fit. Regardless of how I feel about him and his attitude while in Boston, I wouldn't wish vertigo on anyone. I sincerely hope he has a mild case of it and can continue his hockey career without impediment.

Isn't it ironic how Hackett was disingenuous about his intentions of signing with the Bruins and then he gets this injury that may end his career?

I know what positional vertigo is like, and it's definitely something you wouldn't wish upon your worst enemy (ok, any Hab player or fan excepted!). Believe me, when you can't move a muscle (not even move your eyes) without triggering your stomach to lose its' contents, and the room spins in 360 different directions, walking alone is a challenge. Skating would be impossible.

I'll bet anything that he's just developed this, because he'd never be able to play with it all this time. Seems to me I remember reading that Red Wings' Darren McCarty suffers from same. Also seems that many concussion sufferers have problems with vertigo. Wonder if Hack had his bell rung at some point?

Anyway, I wish him luck.
