Yesterday I asked Luther Xue of Stars of Big D if he along with other Stars fans are worried about Brad Richards concussion being a problem going forward and here is his response…
@TheNYRBlog He only took a slight elbow to head. Nothing as vicious as other concussion sufferers (Crosby,etc…). He’ll be ok for next year
He also said in a separate tweet that Richards didn’t look anywhere near as sharp in March after his return from the concussion, but played well in final games.
…the Richards concussion has been a major source of concern for many Rangers fans. While I’m one of those fans that is alarmed I think it may be getting blown a bit out of proportion. Just ask yourself this, how many people have you heard worrying about Gaborik’s concussion going forward? Exactly.
…having said that, I stick by my statement that the Rangers should not go beyond four years or they could have another Chris Drury on their hands towards the end of that contract.
