I Wonder If The Insurance Companies Could Put An End To The NHL Player Concussions ?

Marc Savard.
Sidney Crosby
Derek Booguard
Mike Green
Dan Hamhuis
Ian Laperriere
etc
etc.
have all suffered concussions in the last year
And what about all the players who have suffered career-end concussions!

I can understand a player bumping the puck-carrier off the puck.
But does he have to use a shot to the head to do it?

I'd be interested to hear what insurance companies are saying about the increasing concussions and repeat injuries. At some point they might just not insure someone who has experienced "X" concussions. Then what?

There is an article blasting the Penguins for putting Crosbie back into the game without proper medical attention.

The guy who gave Crosbie that head shot should be an unpaid player as long as Crosbie is out of work.

The "best" player in the league is gone. If the Penguins had to return $15 per seat per game to the people who paid to see Crosbie play that would change things.

If I wasn't so busy, I would start that lawsuit myself. It is a winner.

Anyone think that steroids may have something to do with these deaths...in addition to or in conjunction with, concussions?

JTF- open a new thread please! lol

Is there steroid testing in hockey? I didn't think steroids was a concern in this sport?
