That was just a really strange angle when his neck whipped around.

I think he will be fine, just sore.

Geno retired 2 years ago from concussion symptoms.

This is obviously his 2nd concussion this year. He must have been trying to play thru the first one which was causing him to be confused as to what team to pass the puck to.

Geno is concussed. I can tell by some of the neck meat and from seeing quite a few concussions in my time.

How can we tell if Geno is ok? Using facial expressions is out the window on this one.

Seriously though... If the Pens have learned anything about concussions and that symptoms can take a few days to appear, I wouldn't play him tomorrow and I'd keep him in Pittsburgh during this upcoming 3 game road trip.

He knew what he was doing. If it were any other player Geno wouldn't be in this situation.

He's gonna be fine...
I have a friend that's dating a pre-med student at La Roche college that said her dad once had a concussion, and he said that Geno's constant mouth-breathing eliminates the 'clenched jaw' precursor that exists in all concussion situations. My other friend (who made it to the semi-finals on Jeopardy in 1997) actually theorizes that Malkin's mouth-breathing is a sign of a permanent concussion sustained when he was 5 yrs old...thus rendering him immune to any future concussions.

Geno's a Lamborghini...he'll be back tomorrow night.

Spoiler:
using humor to mask real concern...classic me. :scared: :scared: :scared:

You knows it...

My source's name is malkinscurrentphysicalconditionandormindset. Until last night, he was focused on Geno's lack of confidence stemming from his 5v5 scoring failures. He's a good friend...of a friend...of my coworker...'s cousin.

I blame Vladimir and Natalia. Geno asked for a car after he won the Ross, Hart, and Lindsay last year...they got him a computer.

Talk about being born under a bad sign.

At least he will not be rushed back or get a second concussion like Sid :roll:

So, here we go all over again. I fully expect rumors of retirement and all sorts of crazy stuff if he's out the rest of the season.

Hell, i even remember callers on local radio saying Crosby is doomed and shouldn't play this season because he's only going to get killed out there.

I'm gonna go hide my head in the sand for the next 12 months.

How many concussions have Malkin now had in his career? 3 or 4?

This is not directly related at you but I think the entire issue with Crosby was that the organization mangled it, from the diagnosis to the handling of the media. I mean if memory serves me correctly they even had Rossi taken off the beat because he asked too many obvious questions.

The Sid ordeal got to be pretty scary, he comes back after almost a year and has symptoms after playing a few games and not even taken hits. This after more than a handful of players missed a year, 2 years or didnt come back at all.

With Malkin, if it is just a concussion the handling of it, the reporting and even LGP comments will be fine. People just keep forgetting the reason the Sid Concussion Drama got out of control was because he had a broken neck.

Yeah, i have no doubt he will be fine but i just get a sick feeling from all the garbage that was out there and bad reporting from the Sid incident.
