You don't need to look any further than Pittsburgh, PA to realize how scary concussions are. The Penguins have kept star center Sidney Crosby sidelined for basically an entire season with a concussion, and the Chicago Blackhawks are being similarly cautious with the face of their franchise, center Jonathan Toews.
Toews had been rumored to return last week, but Chicago felt it couldn't send him out on the ice in good faith. Today, head coach Joel Quenneville hinted that there is no timetable for the center's return.
