Well if he's DTD then at least that puck didn't break anything. In that case the only potential negative from that win is now gone . Good news.

That is extremely debatable. Many in the medical community now dispute this, as the only "proof" that has ever surfaced around mouth guards helping with concussions is a study involving Notre Dame football players done back in the 60s. Most sports doctors will now tell you mouth guards do little in this regard, as they do not stop one's brain from rattling around inside one's skull.

If anyone in this thread has ever competitively boxed you will know mouth guards don't really help against concussions...

His point that getting hit in the jaw can cause a concussion still stands.

Concussion from hit in the jaw is usually the result of your teeth smacking together as your jaw closes, getting punched/hit in the side of the jaw doesn't cause that. Remember concussion is caused by brain movement.

If he had a face mask like Martin St. Louis the injury could've been avoided

I think it is time the NHL considered making the puck softer.
It is just too dangerous.

Ummm... more like 7/8's of the speed. Even Al MacInnis could slap the puck at over 100 mph with a wooden stick. He beat out other top d-men at all-star games that were using composite sticks.

Sticks are looking a little dangerous too.

Let's just play catch with a tennis ball.

I think rolling a nurf ball back and forth while sitting on plush foam mats is the best bet. Seems pretty safe. But we should be sure everyone is in full equipment, wouldnt want a concussion to happen.

Al MacInnis was not human, I'm almost 100 percent sure he was a robot.

Pretty sure he's referring to the days when goalies didn't wear masks.

You mean brain slamming into the inside of the skull.

Might want to encase the players in bubble wrap in case they fall off the mat...I mean they could get an ouchie or something.

This will help Tim Connolly out big time. He votes yes.
