Wayne Simmonds RW PHI Nov 19 '78
Wayne Simmonds (concussion) says he feels 'fine' but the decision on when he returns is up to coach Peter Laviolette.
Simmonds didn't play Thursday and GM Paul Holmgren said Simmonds didn't "feel quite right." As we said yesterday, therein lies the problems with concussions. Despite the player saying he's fine, the team must be 100-percent confident he's recovered before sending him back out there. The Flyers' next game is Saturday so Simmonds owners will have to wait for word after tomorrow's morning skate.
