The part about Clowe in the Schneider article is encouraging: 'Lamoriello said winger Ryane Clowe, who missed the final seven games of last season with a concussion, has recovered. It was Clowe's second concussion of the season and came when he hit his head on the boards after a check from Florida's Quinton Howden Mar. 31.
"He's doing extremely well," Lamoriello said. "No concerns."
Clowe, who signed a five-year, $24.25 million contract with the Devils last season, suffered a concussion on Oct. 13 when he was elbowed in the head by Wnnipeg's Jacob Trouba.'
Don't buy it. He probably does feel good from his last concussion, but maybe the same way he felt at the start of last season after the two in 2013. Or the same way he felt when he came back last year before getting his 2nd concussion with the Devils.
From everything we have read about many of the NFL players and some NHL players, I am pretty worried about Clowe's long-term health. Going to be very hard for him to be concussion free for the rest of his career. Not sure what another concussion will do to him. If there is one next season, I hope he retires and just hopes for the best. He's at 4 or 5 concussions in a 14 month period. That's devastating.
