I think the best thing for Deadmarsh is just take the year off (same as Lindros). Since Lindros has started playing for New York he's had no concussion related injuries in 2+ years. I think that when Eric had the entire season off in Philly it helped him improve medically.

Also, many in this thread talk about a the "concussion proof" helmet. Obviously, it's not fool-proof but it has seemed to work - most notably with Alyn McAuley. It was estimated that he had approx. 9 concussions in Junior while playing with the Ottawa 67's. He also had a couple with Jersey and Toronto. When in T.O. he switched to this new helmet and nothing has happened to him in over 2 years, so it does help.
