Is the NHL doing enough to prevent concussions caused by hits to the head?

Just the right amount 79%

Too much 11%

Too little 9%

FAST FACTS

With Alex Ovechkin drawing a three-game charging suspension for a hit to the head of the Penguins' Zbynek Michalek, the league's new rules remain in the spotlight.... Percentages for each response were virtually identical between defensemen and forwards.... In a similar poll on Facebook, fans were far less content, as 64% felt the league is doing too little, compared with 10% who answered "too much" and 26% who felt the NHL's approach is just right.
