Prucha's concussion from the Neal hit last season had a lot to do with the glass not giving as much as well. When the glass can absorb more of the energy, it's dissipated in the glass moving and not dissipated a player's brain.

A couple of older articles referencing the glass in Phoenix specifically, including a former Phoenix player who said he had three concussions from the glass alone:
