And the long history of players playing "through" concussions to be considered "manly" and tough.

Times change.

Perhaps there will be a mandatory "sit out period" once a concussion has been diagnosed.

But as can be seen with Crosby and even Pronger, is there really a "set time"? It's really on each individual and how they recover.
