Gretzky and Lemieux got me into hockey. So that's where I'm coming from.

You say there's less contact, yet admit there are more concussions. Personally I find the high-impact collisions much more exciting than low-level clutching and grabbing. Concussions are definitely a major problem that the game faces though. What's the solution? It might be a combination of things, none of which involve purposefully making the game slower IMO. You can't put the cat back in the bag when it comes to players getting bigger, stronger, and faster. The biggest changes are going to have to come in the form of equipment and behavior modification.
