I think if a 'Healthy' Ferlund is 100%, then yes you want that dynamic on the ice.

If he is 95% and prone to another concussion, then no.

Problem is, He seems to want to play so bad that he appears to be less than accurate to the Docs so they can clear him to play. Unless he has some other kind of undetectable brain thingy happening which is fooling everyone...
Got a copy of the doctor’s notes, lab and MRI results did ya?
They all lie to the doctors at some point. Just listen to some of Kesler's interviews lately. Even worse, he might feel "fine" even if he is not.

Personally, I would be very surprised if he does come back. With all of the new info on concussions, one would like to think that the league would shut him down for his own good, and their own liability. He's had quite a few over the years. 2014, 2018, November 2019. Setback in December 2019. New concussion, or a setback in February 2020, and then, the new one this fall. Throw in a few others that he has likely had but went undetected, and he looks like a walking Time Bomb. But, if he says he feels fine, and we have no way to test Humpty Dumpty without hitting him in the noggin.......

Agree with this. I would love to have him back but I can't see how the Canucks' team doctors or JB could look at him with a straight face and say he should keep playing. Canucks should sit him down, with concussion specialists, and simply say to him that it is in his best interests to go on LTIR. With the court cases going on the NHL would probably want to see the Canucks do this too for the good PR. For his own health/future, I really hope he listens to medical doctors, stays healthy and takes care of himself.

Ferland, love him, he's like a Gino Odjick and Matt Cooke rolled up into one, but concussions fucked him up, says he's good, playing 100%, gets into a fight, and he's out. That's what scares me, the unknown of when he gets hurt.

That's why I believe for his own sake, he needs to go on LTIR and retire. His family and the Canucks should do an intervention and help him come to terms with it. Even find him a role in the organization such as WHL scout or pro scout.

Lol can confirm, you got that right. Doc does too, I have the battle scars to prove it and earned every single one them.

And there are reminders every day like when catching Nate Schmidt's media conference the phone rings and he mocks his folks with a "that's my parents LANDLINE" and I'm like "f'ing kids....I have a landline".

Then again I can't recall invading an island to go into battle with no pants and armed with a grass hockey stick. At least I wouldn't admit to it, even if there was photographic evidence. Having said that, Doc must be our vintage as well, considering his posts about the east end social club he hung out with.

I like to tell the young folk of today how every family I knew when I was a kid had one phone.

It was black and it was bolted to the kitchen wall.

Well, he is only 28 tears old so from that perspective, I understand his reluctance to give in to a long term interregnum. Hard to imagine he'll be
the player we thought we were getting though.
I love how Mick keeps smashing his own records of punctuation/grammar/spelling mistakes

.... and then every once in a while throws in a word like "interregnum".

(in a way which displays he clearly doesn't know the meaning of the word)

LMAO, hello, you're not fooling anyone Micky!

Rotary dialed phones at that. Black and white UHF/VHF TVs with rotary channel selectors. Cable TV was channels 2-12. No remote channel selectors. If you lived outside the lower mainland you used rabbit ears or a roof antennae that looked like a drying rack for reception and you were lucky if you received more than one channel (CBC). Transister radios on the AM dial only. During the late '60s early '70s we could get CKLG and CFUN, the two Vancouver AM rock 'n' roll stations ever so slightly in the late evenings in the cold winter months north in Terrace. Walked a mile in the snow to school but at least it wasn't uphill both ways.
