Thanks to the crack research from Senior NHL Researcher of The Concussion Blog – Brian Clarke, we are prepared to expose these injuries in the NHL for what they appear to really be: concussions;
- Alex Tanguay – Upper Body (yeah right)
- Jarod Palmer – Upper Body (I guess the head is in the upper part of the body)
- Corey Tropp – Upper Body (At least fantasy sports finds it relevant) – been listed out for nearly 3 weeks
- Jim Vandermeer – Upper Body (as in way above his shoulders) – been listed out for near a month
We will be adding the above players to our official concussion list. Once again, even though the transparency is better, it has not gotten to all the teams. It would be nice if they all would be as concerned and forthright as the Avalanche.
*Disclaimer – each team can trump this report by simply making something up, but with so many eyes and very perceptive journalists covering the NHL I will be waiting for official news of something other (see made up) to change my position on this.
