Gillis knows next to squat about concussions.

Commenting with no knowledge or experience himself is useless.

Wishful thinking.


But he happens to be the GM, and he probably is getting daily updates from the medical staff. So just maybe the medical staff is letting him know? Thanks for coming out.

Great news!!!!




Can someone help me jog my memory........

When Daniel was out before didn't it take a good 6 or 7 games for Henrik to get going with the scoring?

Don't you think that before addressing the media about this sort of thing, he would have heard from not only Daniel himself, but as well as the medical staff? He's not an idiot.

He's not an idiot.He is just stating wishful thinking thoughts.
This is the manager of the team that let Raymond skate off the ice and Daniel play the next shift after taking a head shot.
Asking a concussed player how he feels and then stating said concussed player will hopefully be playing in the first round is hopeful at best and silly in the least.

So what I get out of this is that Daniel Sedin never really was injured as badly as he looked to be. They're just making sure he's rested for the playoffs. B)

Sig too big.

Dear Mr nuck nitwit

I was not aware that the GM called the games. Thanks for that info. Also, im sure thats all the info he has regarding Sedin's injury. " Hey Danny, how you feeling? Good? Oh thats great. I'll pass that on to the media"

I appreciate your insight though.

C'mon Ghostsof1915, Nuck nit knows all. I mean he's world renowned, if you want concussion information on a Canuck player who do you go to, Canuck GM Mike Gillis? Of course not you nitwit, nuck nit is the world authority on this stuff.

Better be a zero tolerance, both by his teammates AND the refs, with regard to taking any runs/cheap shots at him. Brad Marshrat, I'm looking at you...

You obviously have no idea how hockey works. The manager of a team has no say who plays certain shifts during a game or who should or shouldn't be allowed to still play hockey during said game. That decision is made by the coaching staff and by trainers.

If you would have ever played competitive sports you would understand that some concussions can be fairly accurately assesed as to their timeline of recovery and some general predictions can be made. Not every concussion is an unknown with widely ranging symptoms and up and down days. Most are you get hit in the head it takes several days for the swelling to go down. A couple days to feel good again and you're ready to go.

Finally, MG has been entrenched in the hockey world for 20+ years at the NHL level. I think he knows a thing or two about concussions. What about you?

I have been on this board for over 5 years now and yet I still find myself wondering "why does every damn thread on here end up in an argument?!?" I visit other team's boards now and then and I never hear them bicker as much as we do. No wonder 60% of the other team's have threads about disdain for our fans. We cannot even get along with each other.

I just hope whenever he does get back that the knock to the head hasn't knocked off the twin-ism, the twin magic or whatever we call it.

I really hope that the Canucks are just milking this because they don't want to make it look like they were lying about Daniels injury to the NHL when they were deciding on the disciPline.

Hopefully he recovers fully and never has problems like this again. If he comes back for game 1, Rogers arena better go off the charts loud with noise. There will be a lot of emotion in the building and hopefully that rallies the team and they come Out hitting everything in site. Lapierre will beast with hits and I think kassian will feed off of that and the crowd and also hit like crazy.

I'll be relieved when he dresses for his next game. Anything up until then is just speculation as concussions are so unpredictable. Still, favorable news is better than none, or bad news.

Seemed to be more of a positive comment and hopeful wishing than "news" of his return, though.

It is wishful thinking.

Gillis,having never had a concussion knows only what he is being told.

It is a quote,a sound bite,an answer to a question in vague,hopeful terms

The Nucks medical staff and especially Gillisare like the rest of humanity that have not suffered concussions or even a single concussion.

The replies/comments here on this serious medical issue range from somewhat knowledgeable and very thoughtful to accusatorial ignorance.

And yes,I do know somewhat that of which Dan is going through as I have had not one but multiple concussions at various times in my life and of varying degrees of severity.

Pray the concussion is not in any way hampering his cognitive skills or abilities.

This is an injury that is deadly serious and being 'hopeful' is in no way a forecast of any merit,whatsoever.

Ballard,Booth,Hamhuis and now Daniel.These guys are all playing a super high intensity sport at breakneck speed and are only one potential hit away from retirement-or worse.

I sure hope so! *fingers crossed* But I also hope he doesn't feel pressured to come back before he's fully healed and ready. He's an awesome player who contributes so much to our team, but he has to keep being a husband, father, brother and son long after he stops being a hockey player so concern for that part of his life should come first.

How do you know MG or his medical staff have NEVER sustained a concussion? You may want to take a look in the mirror because you are sounding an awful lot like the pot calling the tea kettle black here. You make a "couple" valid points, but the rest just seem like personal opinion.

So let me get this straight. A surgeon should only perform surgery if he's had the same surgery? A psychiatrist should only asses people with mental problems if they have had the same mental problems?

The medical staff is educated on how to deal with injuries. Just because you had a concussion does not suddenly make you more knowledgeable than people who have been trained extensively to do their jobs properly.

To have a member of CDC claim to know better than people working in the organization with full disclosure of what is actually happening is laughable. They get feedback from the player and do the best they can with the information at hand. But to go on a forum and insult the GM and medical staff just because you had a concussion before is incredibly condescending to professionals in their field.

You may be right, you may be wrong but your delivery of your statements is what makes your argument seem immature.
