This may be featured in tomorrow's FlyBy, but it was just posted up on Puck Daddy. It's an article that puts into perspective just how many players are dealing with concussions right now, including a lot of major players on teams. Already on the list are Giroux, Crosby, Skinner, Mike Richards, Schenn, Pronger, Letang, Pitkanen, and more. And those listed in the article were just some of the better players. It seems like lately, there's been so many more concussions. It could be just because so much attention was given to the Crosby issue from last year that we're noticing them more now, but he's even having symptoms again. It could be due to the articles on players like Boogaard, whose many concussions are reported to have been a factor in his death. Whatever the reason, I wonder if there are ways of minimizing the concussions. Dropping the enforcer position would only do so much good, as a lot of the current concussions weren't even due to fighting.
What other fixes could drop these concussion numbers? Are the numbers really so much more than normal, or just being noticed more than previous years?
