Holy SHIT.

So, uh, subdural hematoma, eh? Yeah that's a pretty good reason to keep a guy out of the lineup.
I just spoke to Johan Franzen, and he told me the reason he missed six games during the playoffs was because he of a bruise inside his head.

"I had a collection of blood, it was not in the brain, but between the skull and the brain," Franzen said.

The team said Franzen was suffering from headaches, saying the symptoms were concussion-like, but an MRI revealed the blood.

"It self-absorbed between two and three weeks," Franzen said. "It was a little bit scary. I couldn't do anything because that would have been dangerous."

I'll say.
