This is absolutely a perfect example of what one of the leading problems is (not the only problem though) relating to concussions.
The equipment that is supposed to only be for protection can now be used as a weapon.
You are spot on that technology that is designed to protect has actually harmed the player.
Another reason to get rid of the instigator. Vever in a million does Volchenkov make that hit if he knows that Thornton or Chara are going to rock him next shift. Looch unfortunately is a somewhere else this year!
