The video wasn't meant to be my argument, just a fun (and admittedly only partially related) way of showing how blatantly obvious it is that hockey is dangerous. 200+ lbs athletes who are getting stronger and faster with each passing year rip around the ice and hit each other into walls, clearly not safe to say the least. More players are injured every night, so "Is hockey dangerous?" is a huge oversimplification of the problem and useless to discuss, "How can we reduce head injuries in hockey?" would be a much more productive starting point.
