Ian Laperriere Leaving His Heart and Soul on the Ice
Typical fucking New Jersey fans cheering an injury. Unfortunately this just cost Ian the rest of this season. I literally just died a little inside, feeling completely terrible. This happened to literally the last player who deserved it. Here's a link to the transcript of a teleconference with Philadelphia Flyers GM Paul Holmgren regarding Ian's status.
Love how the Chief Neurosurgeon at the University of Pittsburgh Hospital backtracks when asked about the concussion.
"First he said no, he didn’t have a concussion but then he kind of back tracked and said ‘Well its safe to say that he’s got a mild concussion’ so Ian felt… obviously the blurred vision scared him." - Philadelphia Flyers GM Paul Holmgren when asked what the doctor said TODAY
What. The. Fuck. How much more bad luck can this franchise take with these injuries (Emery,Leighton, Carter's second sting, Gagne's second stint, Lappy ALL currently out) and crack-pot doctors?
Oh, that's how...
