From what I understand the chance of getting another concussion isn't higher if you had one before, but the severity of repeated concussions is the problem. I'm sure there are conflicting studies though. There always seems to be when it comes to contentious issues.

Also, players who have been out with concussions for a long time often change their game and become less effective. Not everyone, but most.

After what Avs have gone through with concussions with Mueller, Hishon, Wilson, Cumiskey, Landeskog and others, I can't see Avs trading for a guy like Perron.
