Former Flyer Eric Lindros, whose once brilliant NHL career was cut short by a series of serious concussions, recently shared his belief that the NHL’s rule changes that have opened up the neutral zone and areas behind the net have created an environment in which danger to players is more likely—specifically concussions.
Lindros also called out Matt Cooke of the Penguins as a player who purposely tries to injure opponents, including targeting the head. Pro Hockey Talk has more on the story, which raises some eyebrows about whether entertainment is unintentionally being valued over player safety.
