Haven't we reached a point where we're past penalizing a player for concussions? I mean, this is the Age of Concussions now. Everyone is getting them now, a result of the game being too fast and every check looking more and more like a car crash.

I think, 'should have kept his head up' is a little out-dated with the league the way it is now. I personally find it tough to critique a Crosby or a Toews or a Bergeron for concussions like I once did with a Lindros, all things considered.
