Fighting needs to be banned. First step toward lowering seek-and-destroy violence level in New NHL era. Easiest place to start.
Not saying it hasn't happened before because I'm sure it has, but this is the first time that I can at least remember a guy being concussed from a fight.
In a way, fighting might actually decrease concussions. The way it is now, you have fewer guys trying to get retribution/take out their frustrations by a stick/elbow/etc. to the head.
The big shots to the head via hits are really the most damaging, and the NHL has taken steps to getting that type of contact out of the game.
Go away, KPD.
