    Horton Improvement?

    http://www.csnne.com/hockey-boston-bruins/bruins-talk/Horton-coming-along-from-concussion-symp?blockID=712236&feedID=10944

    Let's hope Horton can make a comeback like Bergeron. Losing Savard this way was bad enough.

    I hope so! The Bruins are simply a much better team with him playing. What he brings, they lack elsewhere. It was painfully obvious in the year before they traded for him and after he was injured this year. The mojo was gone.

    I agree completely. Even when he wasn't scoring, Horton's big body was making room for his linemates.

    First McQuaid, now Horton.  This is brilliant news for them and the team.  If only the word, any word was as encouraging about Savard.

    When Horton is in the line-up all the lines are intact, thats a biggy.

    This will solve one problem come UFA time having a RW back. It will take a while for him to get his mojo back and game strenght. Hopefully he will be ready for spring training to get the rust out. With a healthy Horton we won't need to go out and spend too much in UFA market. PC and Company can work a contract with Kelly before July 1st.

    Keith Primeau still has PCS long after he's retired.  He was on TSN a while back and I guess he still has bad days.  I think Savard will be living the same life - never fully recovered.

    Three more full months of rest and recovery is not encouraging.  I'd rather of heard he's started training for the fall.  I wonder how much, if any, physical activity he's getting in?  It may be a while before he is effective on the ice.

    Dez, Bergeron went well into the 08'-09' season before he had that collision with Siedenberg then came back. Patrice was out a whole season before he came back of 08'-09' season.

    If Horton can go at least till late winter until he absorbs a late hit or a collision then I think he will be ok. Then again Bergeron and Horton have different genetics so who knows. Patrice was ok after the Siedenberg and Giroux hits. Rinaldo didn't touch Nathan's head and the end result sucked.

    One thing is for sure is that there is no concrete timetable.

    Re: Horton Improvement?

    i'll start by saying I'M NOT A DOCTOR. but it seems coming back too soon after a "big one" is seriously detrimental. patrice took a full year off before coming back. he took a hit(seidenburg), and was able to recover. savard and horton try to come back as soon as possible (few months), and their next "not so big one" might end their career.  i hope horton is not going down the road savard is on. if you lose consciousness, and are severely concussed, one calendar year until you return should be the new rule of thumb. what's sad is, i don't think the doctors know much more than we do when it comes to prevention and treatment of head injuries.

    Re: Horton Improvement?

    Got to start a thread on who on the team makes the management seek a trade.  Cause if it is the Bs, then it is the health of Horton.  Otherwise all the banter of trade is just folly. Hope he can make it back!

    When it comes to concussions, everything I've seen and read says recovery is "unpredictable" which makes all the speculative posts kinda funny IMO.

    Horton's presence elevates both Lucic and Krecji's games.  He is so very valuable to the team.

    RHO, what's the word on McQuaid - I haven't been able to find anything?

    Re: Horton Improvement?

    I'd prefer it if Horton is at full strength (both with his brain AND his legs) for a few months before they bring him back. If he's skating full-tilt in practice starting in October, I'd wait until at least January. This team is good enough to hold down the fort until then. As much as I think he's an awesome player AND teammate, he needs to be given extra rest to ensure that he is absolutely 100% ready. I really don't want to see an other Savard case.

    Re: Horton Improvement?

    Since his second bout with symptoms was way worse than expected, I would be very cautious with him. The second hit was pretty minor, a jarring collision that many people encounter in everyday life. That makes me think the first was way worse than everyone (including Horton) thought, and that he wasn't fully recovered even though he was back playing. I would wait until he's fully cleared (which of course could be this summer), then wait some more on top of that before dressing him. In the mean time I really hope the Bruins sign or trade for an above-average wing (fingers crossed for Jagr) who can fill in with some skill, and then drop down to the third line and provide high-end depth scoring. Boston has some short-term cap space, that's my preferred way to use it.
