What is important is how MUCH it changes a person's game. Do Perron and Landekog keep their head up now? I hope so. Do they refuse to go into a corner, a scrum, in front of the net, etc.? Perron is still willing, and the times I've seen Landeskog it seems he is as well.

Flash got some weird clotting thing due to the altitude. I mean.. wtf!
I get it. But if your gonna be paranoid about why your players are all getting injured, I'd look at the medical staff.

But like I said earlier, hockey is simply a dangerous game. The fact that players that Colorado acquires get injuried is nothing more than random chance.

I'm guessing its all the headers. Seriously. A fully inflated soccer ball hurts a bit when it hits your head. Repeated over and over and over and over, I can see it easily having a cumulative effect.
