The problem is brushing aside the illegal hits the way they do. There are obviously grave risks to playing the sport of hockey...and it's up to the league and officials to mitigate the potential danger of playing the sport as much as possible by removing illegal plays that cause injuries.
I'm talking in a moral sense, and something the players should be aware of if they give a **** about each other's lives at all. It's not okay to concuss someone, regardless if the hit is labelled clean, legal, illegal, dirty, etc. Accidents happen, but I'm tired of hearing that a clean hit concussed someone. You don't **** with the brain.
