Why do you want a player playing for your team who isn't going to be capable of playing well? "Random headaches after working out hard"... they aren't random, they are consistent and they aren't mild headaches, either. And if they're consistent and severe, that means these players are going to be getting these headaches during the game and they're not going to be able to function properly on the ice. Do you really want Sauer making a game-ending mistake in a game because he's not capable of thinking the game properly in a crucial moment? I don't.
Sigh, never mind it's politically incorrect now to talk about less safety so I will stop.
Of course some concussions are severe and require lots of down time, but I was just pointing out that they are going overboard with this crap, I'm sure someone can decide if they are well enough to play or not (in most cases) without having the league go around pushing shutdowns of months at a time.
