from Barry Rozner of the Chicago Daily-Herald, It’s a question no one wants to ponder, but it’s one that has to be asked:
Should the Blackhawks consider shutting down Jonathan Toews for the rest of the season?
If you know anything about Toews, you also know his answer would be, “Not a chance.”
But Toews has already missed five games, having played perhaps as many as six games with a suspected concussion.
His last game was 10 days ago and his symptoms have not subsided to the point where he can skate. Toews did some off-ice training Wednesday, riding the stationary bike, but that can mean very little when it comes to recovering from a concussion.
“He was doing a little bit of that (off-ice training) today,” Hawks coach Joel Quenneville said Wednesday. “Today is no change from (Tuesday). Hopefully he can get going and we can get him back on the ice.”
