08:22 AM ET 04.03 | All is not well in Montreal. Just when you thought nothing else could go wrong in a season when the Canadiens are No. 1 in the National Hockey League in man-games lost, there's a report that franchise goaltender Carey Price is suffering from a concussion. Price skipped practice Monday with what the team described as a "therapy day" and the team admitted later in the day that Price was being monitored for headaches. That announcement followed a Radio-Canada report that Price had a concussion. ... If Price did suffer a concussion, it could complicate matters for the team's new general manager. Price will become a restricted free agent on July 1 and contract talks could be delayed if Price doesn't have a clean bill of health.

Therapy days always help with a good PMS headache.

JK.

If it is a concussion, when and how did this happen?

Hope he has a speedy recovery.

Can't help but smile when I look at the standings, and see who's in the cellar. It couldn't happen to a better group of flopping, nutless Nancy-boys. I'm sure a French speaking coach will make a huge difference next year...maybe all the way up to 14th.

I'd bang my head to get out of playing for the Habs too.

If that isn't the pot calling the kettle black, I don't know what is.

A year to forget for Carey. Hope he recovers soon and completely. I sympathize.

If he's lucky the concussion symptoms will involve memory loss.

This true Danny. Unfortunately they're the "before" model.
