Head injuries: Do they raise questions?I've been thinking a lot about the Savard and Laperriere situations and wondering if they really were "cleared" to come back last year and if they did more harm to their recovery process by playing. This has become a huge issue in the NFL, and it certain is to become one in the NHL, too. It seems strange that guys could come back and play at a pretty high level and now they are having recurrences of the symptoms.
Brian Pothier sat out a year and a half and then took an eye test and found out that he actually had issues with his eyesight that were projecting post-concussion syndrome symptoms. It all makes you wonder what the standards and protocols really are. #Hockey
