As far as mandating a particular helmet, that I don't agree with. While the Messier helmet may be designed for concussions, everyone's head is different, and sometimes a different option will just fit better.
They need to do something.
Visors, mouth guards, throat guards, and wrist guards should be mandated, IMO.
Avoid all preventable injuries to the eyes, slit jugular veins, broken wrists.
Combine the M11 with a good visor and a custom mouth guard and you're improving your chances to avoid concussions from the get go.
I just don't understand how the league allows its players to be at extra unnessesary risk, when the technology and equipment is out there to prevent specific injuries.
