An update on Matt Cullen's concussion recovery

Glove-tap to the Lets Go Canes board regarding this article on the progress Matt Cullen is having this summer:

"Cullen, who equaled the highest points total of his career with 49 in just 59 games, said he’s seen several specialists in North Carolina and Denver. His last check-up about a month ago showed no lingering signs of post-concussion syndrome. Cullen’s been free of headaches, and says his off-season on-ice training is going as planned.“I love the way I’m feeling right now,” he said. “I feel like I’m going to be 100-percent (to start the season).”

Apparently Cully had a great interview on 99.9 The Fan that should be available thru The Fan's website, but I can't seem to find it. Any help with that would be appreciated and this post will be updated accordingly. Thanks to "dabest" - here is the link to the interview.

In regards to Matt's health - boy, do I hope for the best with him being 100%. I only worry that one more hit like that will be the swan song for his poor melon.
