Crosby back to the bench with concussion-like symptoms

  1. Experts say…. There is a serious lack of knowledge about brain injuries. So who cares what experts say. I feel bad for Crosby but somethings are more important than hockey.

  2. This csase study in Crosby could really be important with respect to recent concussions suffered by other young stars in the NHL – in the last 7 days, in addition to Sidney Crosby, Claude Giroux and now Milan Michaelek have gone down with concussions, and David Perron missed almost 100 games with a concussion.

    And all of them were the result of accidental contact with teammates. I think that the non-helmet equipment has to be looked at as well, in addition to the helmets.
