St. Louis’ David Perron has missed 13 games since a Joe Thornton hit on him, giving him a concussion. It was a good hockey hit, the type players grow up learning. Still, Thornton had to be suspended. You can’t take that hit out of the game, but the league has to try; concussion prevention simply hasn’t kept up with the strength of players.

Little Joe could have taken the body but lifted up to take it to his head.

Why is no mention made of the fact that Perron never touched the puck.  The pass went between his stick and skates.  Easy to hammer a guy when he doesn’t have the puck.
