Yet, for some reason, you see a guy get a concussion in hockey and he's usually out weeks, months, or even worse, a Crosby or Savard type case. I realize concussions are always different in severity, but it seems that football players usually come back the following week or two (see Eddie Lacy).
I have no issues with it.

The NHL has the best policy when it comes to dealing with players that have concussions.

MUCH better than the NFL
