With all of the attention on trying to protect players I can't believe Lundquest and Danielson sat there and tried to justify that hit.
    All commentators favor the team that is considered to be the "sexy" team. It becomes even more obvious if that sexy team is winning the game. Besides no commentator could cheer against the Bruins cheerleaders.

    Refs missed it bad.
    According to the video replay it appears the helmet hit the top of Logan's chest first.

    I wasn't on the field. I'm basing my call on what I saw in the replay. Never saw anybody knocked out from a hit to the chest.
    Knock the breath out of a guy, yes, but never a knockout.

    The concussion could have come from when the helmet struck the ground. The one time I got a concussion in a game was not from the initial hit, but when the back of my helmet hit the ground.

    Whiplash, head contact with the ground, going Gus Frerotte, etc. There are other ways to get a concussion without helmet to helmet contact.

    Guy led with his head all game, just asking for a serious injury.

    I'm very familiar with that scenario, but I don't think that's what happened here. In the replay link it looks like LT landed on his left side and the helmet may not even hit the ground with the force required to cause a concussion.

    Everybody knows that, but not one of those examples is pertinent to this situation.
    And each of those examples still has everything to do with the head, not the top of the chest.

    That's his problem. The danger he presents to everybody else is the bigger picture.
