i was just about to post that. i wonder if this resonates with any of the guys in the NHL. this is bound to happen to one of them at some point. maybe they should stop being such reckless a-holes in the mean time.

All things considered, Geno was very very lucky to only sustain a concussion.

I've definitely been sent headfirst into the boards before. Never got so much as a sore neck, but i definitely think about how easily it could have been life altering or ending. Scary stuff.
