Injuries happen in hockey. They happen a lot less than in football. It is never going to not be a dangerous sport, even if we turn the boards into marshmallows.
That's a good point. Even though hockey's such a faster sport then football with high speed collisions (hits in hockey are FAR faster then they could ever possibly be in the NFL, simply on the fact that you can't run as fast as you can skate), there's less injuries then football. Which means the league really isn't doing too bad in this aspect.
