    Dryden does a great job in lanyig it all out there. If I can get political for a second, in some ways its like the debate over global warming. There are certain things that just make sense to work towards correcting before science 100% confirms things. Even if by some fluke CTE has no relation to hockey, we still have a safer league. Sitting idly by solves nothing.
