A local Peewee hockey team has 5 kids out with concussions. And this is in a non checking league!
What I' ve noticed about about players compared to when I played 40 years ago is that offensive players play faster and are more reckless when crashing the net and around the boards. They don't slow down when moving onto those areas, but expect to be able to turn or otherwise manouver their way out with no consideration of what might happen if they lose an edge or get contacted by a player... in some cases from their own team.
Don't know if this akin to blaming **** victims rather than the rapist.
I would have no problem with making penalties more of a deterrent. Rather than call more or longer penalties, simply waive the no icing rule for the penalized team.
