Just makes you think about the number of guys that have been concussed over the years when they weren't really aware of them.

I was talking with my brothers about this. I don't think it's a new epidemic, I think it's just better diagnosed with the advancement in technology and testing.

that, and the fact that most hockey equipment is essentially body armor now, and not so much just "pads" of earlier years. bigger, faster, stronger people playing with harder shells over the pads for personal protection, and less give during impact.

I definitely agree that the players are getting better at not just playing through it because they don't want to be called a little baby, but I'd look at the equipment and see if something can be done there too.
