Figure it out, make it mandatory - they'll get used to it within a few months. Let's stop risking losing the best players from our game.
It's not just the helmet that's important, it's wearing a mouthpiece too. The mouthpiece helps prevent your jaw from moving in weird ways that cause concussions (and/or make them worse) too.
