Pens Points: NHL Still Ignorant on Concussions

Not too many Pens news, unless you count a slimmed-down Phil Kessel donning his new Pens jersey. He looked downtrodden (too much kale probably), sparking a photoshop phrenzy. [Pension Plan Puppets]

Allan Muir writes that the NHL should adopt NFL's new concussion protocol. [Sports Illustrated]

On Gary Bettman and the politics of ignorance. A very worthwhile read. [Hockey in Society]

The Patrick Kane case is another in a long line of depressing things to follow. Almost everything I read depresses me even more, be it from the article itself or the comments that follow it. Some lessons in how not to cover a sexual assault case. [PPP]

The New York Rangers have signed former King Jaret Stoll to a 1-year, $800K contract. [Blueshirt Banter]

The NHL Coaches' Association wants the Coach of the Year award renamed after Scotty Bowman, while calling the GM of the Year award after Jack Adams. Makes sense 100%. [The Score]

The NHLPA has filed a grievance against the LA Kings on behalf of Mike Richards, whose contract was terminated in late June. They have requested an expedited hearing on the matter. [LA Times]

The least lauded Bolts triplet might be the best of all. I think the 2016 Lightning will be the 2009 Pens. They will go back to SCF and win it all this time. That is one loaded team. [SportLogiQ]

Anaheim Duck have announced plans to unveil new third jerseys in October and hinted on Twitter that they might be similar or identical to those worn in the original "Mighty Ducks" movie. Quack quack Mr. Ducksworth sir!! [Ducks]

Warning: only watch this video if you have some free floor space to roll on. I made a mistake of watching in my office and fell out of my chair laughing. This is why hockey players are the absolute best. [You Tube]
