Commentators on the TSN Round table shoud be more up to date on what or what not was said on the Cooke-Savard hit. He only needs to speak publicly about the hits he took to cause the Concussion, not every player on his team. Those who think they were not a "Dirty Hits",Look again!!!! Both players could have avoided the vicious hits to Crosby who did not have the puck on the Steikil hit,but shame on both opponets for not having the respect for the BEST PLAYER in the NHL. Steikil saw an opportunity to put Crosby out of play as the Officials were like Blind Mice on the Ice and all others were looking at the Puck in the other end. Steikil kept skating as nothing happened. What a poor excuse of a professional hockey player!!!!!!!

Last year, in the playoffs between Chicago/Philly...there are a CLEAR high stick to Danny Briere...Danny, went splat, on the ice...was bleeding from the eye area...no call on that either...and no discussion on it either...it seems the Official, only see what they want to see...How can you miss it, when a guy is laying on the ice...and then gets up...and is bleeding from the eye??? However, Danny, being the classy guy he is...spent sometime in Chicago, helping out in a gold tournament for charity...When it comes to Classy guys...Sidney, could take lessons from Danny...

Read up on what a concussion is.
one thing it is NOT
not a simple injury.
And it involves the BRAIN
not just the skull.

If you get it you would understand.
