I think you are just more atune to what is happening in Boston. Here are some good stats for you:
There has been over 500 concussions in the last 7 years in the NHL, 72 just this season.
Some notable ones:
Centre: Sidney Crosby, Brad Richards, Marc Savard, David Krejci, John Tavares, Bryan Little.
Left wing: Johan Franzen, Andy McDonald, David Perron, Max Pacioretty, Rene Bourque.
Right wing: Marian Gaborik, Ales Hemsky, Jason Pominville, Mike Knuble.
Defence: Drew Doughty, Mike Green, Brad Stuart, Toni Lydman, Dan Hamhuis, Andrej Meszaros, Nick Schultz
Goal: Jonas Hiller, Ondrej Pavelec
It is easy to single out the boston players because we see them every day; but this is happening everywere.
