You never know with that kind of injury (major concussion) if (or when) a person will be fully recovered (I'm talking with respect to the offseason after the 2009-10 season). He still missed just over 30 percent of his 1st season with the Kings due to various injuries (I don't remember if any of which was concussion related). On a side note, I *think* that was one of the reasons for his retirement a number of years later (he suffered concussion as Panther). Same reason I *think* Ballard & Alberts (though the later was a result of a concussion from a REAL sack of manure cheapshot - no big surprise in that I think that Flames player got no suspension) had their careers cut short - concussions.
