Well here we are in August, and word is that Sid is still having concussion symptoms. It doesn't seem to be preventing him from working out, but still, having symptoms seven months later is not good.
Don't believe so it was,both were quite brutal to the head.This isn't good for the Penguins and hockey in general. The sooner he is back, the better. However, I certainly do not want him to rush back and I'm starting to doubt if he would be the same player. Was it ever officially announced which hit gave him the concussion? I remember the hit from Steckel, but he still played through that and then took another hit I think from Hedman, correct? Since it's taking so long I'm thinking he had a concussion during the Winter Classic and tried playing through it. Getting hit in the head while you have a concussion is obviously not good and I know personally that PCS stays there a lot longer when this happens.
