Is Brent Burns's career in jeopardy cause of all the concussions ?!?!?

I love Brent Burns but he suffered a couple of concussions within a short period of time and that has to be the worst injury possible for a d-men. Is he gonna come back "pre post-concussion" or will his game change for the simple fact that he doesn't want to get another hit and turn out to be "Brett Lindros".

I really hope he get's his **** together and starts dominating like he did a couple of seasons ago and get's traded to New Jersey... cause he's exactly what we need for a solid SCP run

Of course his career could be in jeopardy. Concussions are serious injuries both in the short and long term.

He should be back in the lineup with in the next two weeks. Hopefully there was no long term damage.

Pierre Marc Bouchard, on the other hand is in a bad situation. Not much chance he will play again this season.

I think he needs fresh starts.

I doubt Wild will trade him but if, this will be good move for him.

I don't think so, but he really does need to just relax and let his brain heal. Coming back too soon only leads to the ability of it being even more deadly.
