    as a fan, these concussions are getting too numerous and are interfering with the game itself. when you see all the superstars disappearing from the game for extended periods, you think that the league or nhlpa would step in and make some changes. im guessing equipment changes would help a lot… maybe bigger ice surface… in any case, i hope the nhl ends up taking care of this issue soon.
