WASHINGTON -- The NHL is overhauling its concussion monitoring system. Drew Stafford Jersey .Deputy Commissioner Bill Daly said the league will have four concussion spotters watching all games from a centralized location in either Toronto or New York, as well as spotters at each game to check for visible symptoms. Those spotters will have the authority to have players removed from games.Its a pretty major revamp from what it was last year, Daly said Wednesday. Were going to have both those (remote and on-site) spotters, plus you have the clubs medical staffs. Were just building in reinforcements, really, to make the system work better.Previously, there had been team-affiliated concussion spotters in each arena and they could recommend to medical staffs but not require players be removed from a game.Daly said the new concussion policy goes into effect for the eight-team World Cup of Hockey, which begins Saturday in Toronto, and that the NHL will release more details closer to the start of the regular season.Players get removed for visible signs, and thatll be mandatory removal and thatll be done at the league level, Daly said.Daly said the concussion spotters will work out of the department of player safety and report to the chief medical consultant and lawyer Julie Grand.The NHL is in the midst of a concussion lawsuit filed by former players alleging that it had the resources to better prevent head trauma, failed to properly warn players of such risks and promoted violent play that led to their injuries.Some other things Daly touched on Wednesday before a World Cup of Hockey exhibition game between Sweden and Team Europe:STRICTER TESTING: The NHL and NHLPA agreed to implement stricter drug testing for the World Cup in conjunction with the World Anti-Doping Agency. Daly said players were subject to testing during pre-tournament training camps and that three randomly-selected players from each team will be tested after each game.I wouldnt say its exactly like the Olympics, but its pretty close to what the Olympic program was, Daly said. The list for which we test for is broader in this tournament than it is during the regular season.SMALLER GOALIES: Changes to goaltending equipment will be incremental as Daly said he expects new, slimmer pants to be ready for the start of the season but that chest protectors wont be because of manufacturer delays. The NHL would push to implement that smaller upper-body equipment midseason, Daly said, but added that he didnt know the NHLPAs view on that idea.OLYMPIC TALK ON HOLD: Daly said there was radio silence on the topic of NHL participation in the 2018 Olympics in Pyeongchang and expects the league and Players Association to meet with the International Ice Hockey Federation during the World Cup.---Follow Stephen Whyno on Twitter at http://www.twitter.com/SWhyno Custom Winnipeg Jets Jerseys . Its sharpness matched my mind. This was no night to go to sleep. Winnipeg Jets Jerseys . Inter president Erick Thohir says in a club statement on Wednesday that Vidic is "one of the worlds best defenders and his qualities, international pedigree, and charisma will be an asset. http://www.thejetshockeystore.com/Jets-Keith-Tkachuk-Adidas-Jersey/ .S District Court against Major League Baseball, the Office of the Commissioner and his own union, the MLBPA. Shane Jurgensen, New Zealands bowling coach, has promised a fight from his side on the final day of the Kanpur Test. New Zealand need to bat out 98 overs with only six wickets in hand, after losing the first four in 37 overs. They need 341 runs to win, which is nigh impossible.We made some adjustments today, Jurgensen said. I think like that last partnership towards the end today, weve just got to keep fighting. And thats the way we play cricket. We have to fight to the end. There is still six wickets to go and if you get a good partnership going, and we saw that today when India batted, if you get a good partnership you can score at a decent rate, and more importantly you can bat for time. Thats our goal, to fight for as long as we can, have a good start in the morning and really try and fight as far as we can. From my experiences in this game tomorrow is a new day. Well see what happens then.Jurgensen said it was obviously challenging to play in conditions they are not accustomed to, but said it was important to enjoy the experience in order to get better of the challenges. Some turn, some dont and some jump, Jurgensen said. Its just a matter of not feeling the pressure and starting to accept the challenge and play with a smile on your face. What a great opportunity it is tomorrow to come out on the fifth day. If we attack it like that, its our best opportunity to get through.One of the keys to the fight is the nuggety wicketkeeper-batsman BJ Watling, who went off the field with a mix of dehydration and back issues. Laurie Boschman Jersey. Jurgensen said he was going to bat. I think hell be assessed over the next 24 hours, Jurgensen said. But as far as Im aware hell be good to go tomorrow. It was just pretty warm today.One of the areas where New Zealand could have given themselves less time to survive was by bowling tighter in the second innings, but conceded 377 runs at 3.51 an over. Obviously they got a few boundaries and batted really well, Jurgensen said. These are conditions the Indian players are very familiar with and we saw how well they can bat in their conditions. Today we made the necessary adjustments and showed a much-improved performance with the ball. All we can focus on is those positives. Credit to the Indian batsmen. There were times where we bowled well and created pressure but they are very experienced, wore us down and played well.In Wellington in 2013-14, New Zealand batted out 210 overs in the second innings to salvage a draw against India, but those were totally different conditions. With the ball turning so much, against Indian spinners who are at the top of their game, New Zealand are left needing a miracle to not go to Kolkata trailing in the series. Cheap NFL Jerseys Cheap NFL Jerseys China Cheap Jerseys From China Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic Wholesale Jerseys China Cheap NFL Jerseys China NFL Cheap Jerseys ' ' '
