This is something that the various PA's need to address. Come up with a mandatory max number a player can have before being forced to retire. Sometimes with the money involved players have to be protected from themselves.
Not sure that would be a good idea. Players that didn't want to retire would just lie about having concussions. Also, it would be to hard to come up with a number since concussions have different levels of severity and are hard to measure. I also think they should have control of when they want to stop. They have doctor's advising them on their health.
Some kind of concussion relief fund would be good, though. For Franzen's case, he would still get paid, right, if he went on LTIR.
