There are too many slugs in the NHL looking for their opportunity to "shine". One of the many reasons that 30 teams in the league is too many.

I ain't even mad at the guy. All he really did was step up and stand there. He didn't come across the ice to kill someone. Solid hit, and both have consequences for it. (did you see his face?). 

The fact that Laine was walking around after the game according to some neurologists is a good sign.

He was placed on IR.  Could be a while.

It could potentially be a while but being placed on IR doesn't necessarily make it so - IR can be seven days from the date of the injury.

Even if its just two week, it makes sense to place the player on IR (a) for cap reasons and (b) to create a roster spot for a replacement.

I'm aware of that thanks.  I suspect the Jets will be cautious with Laine.  Better to be safe than sorry.

I don't disagree - I'm sure they will.

Was just positing that getting placed on IR doesn't necessarily mean that it will be long term. Not an uplifting sign though.
