It may be the end game. It may not. Would it not be a good idea to at least make the attempt to improve player safety rather than say..."The amount of concussions in minor hockey is acceptable. We see no reason to change."
In discussions with several hockey parents over the last 24 hours, the feedback is positive with the decision. Three of us have kids in Peewee. Two with initiation kids.
The one person I talked to that didn't like it played AAA and that small kids going to Bantam would be at severe risk. That I couldn't disagree with.
