Brainwave Optimization Helps Kurt Sauer Deal With Concussion

from PR Web,

Sauer, who hasn’t been able to play since he suffered a neck injury during a preseason game against the Anaheim Ducks in September 2009, discovered Brainwave Optimization when someone from Brain State Technologies read his story in the Arizona Republic and sent a note to say, “I think we can help.”

“I’ve always believed that if the brain was willing, the body would follow,” said Sauer, “but up until I found Brainwave Optimization, I just wasn’t progressing.” Sauer investigated Brainwave Optimization “and it just made sense to me that getting better didn’t mean cutting something out or taking pills.”

Yotes Lose Sauer For A Month

from Russell Brooks of PhoenixCoyotes.com,

Coyotes defenseman Kurt Sauer suffered a lower body injury during the third period of Saturday night’s victory over Dallas and is expected to miss the next four weeks.

“It is a big blow for us,” General Manager Don Maloney said on Sunday. “(But) it will open up an opportunity for someone else to step in and play well.”

Avs Start Contract Talks with Foote, Sauer

From Rick Sadowski at the Rocky Mountain News,

The agents for defensemen Adam Foote and Kurt Sauer have had preliminary contract talks with the Avalanche and expect to resume discussions shortly before or during the June 20-21 NHL draft.

Foote and Sauer will be eligible for unrestricted free agency on July 1.


In other not-particularly-fascinating-but-still-suggestive Avalanche news, Adrian Dater mentioned (in his Denver Post blog yesterday) that Joe Sakic has recently been spotted in a local gym. He added this note:

That has to be a good sign, right? If I had said “Joe Sakic has been seen at the all-you-can-eat Pizza Hut lunch buffet for five days straight”, that wouldn’t be such a good thing, right?
