Not against banning youth of checking, love the idea actually.

The only way the NHL is going to rid of concusions is ban checking, make the puck plastic and hollow, and turn the ice into gum. There will always be concussions in a contact sport especially when players can get up to 20+ mph.

I think the only way to help the rate of concussions is doing the reverse of they are doing now. Less saftey equipment. Players put on all that gear and literally become invincible making them overconfident and less respectful of the opposing team.
