I can understand a shoulder, hip, leg, and even groin injury, but concussion?
if you're playing a team 6 times a year and have somebody disposable like carkner was in the ottawa series, you're not worried about the league taking action against him. if you know a guy is vulnerable, there's no doubt that there are people in the league who will go after the injury--first with clean checks, and occassionally with dirty 'headhunting' hits-- no matter what part of the body it is. think of a 7 game playoff series... it can happen no doubt. hossa just got elbowed in the back of the head the other night in what looked like the most blatantly obvious headhunt that i have ever seen in my life and the guy only gets 1 game. the rules won't deter everyone.
