Manager Allan Walsh is known for being a controversial figure in the NHL, largely due to his outspoken nature and tendency to take aim at NHL Commissioner Gary Bettman, often hitting the mark. In a recent post, Walsh criticized Bettman's handling of head injuries and CTE in the NHL.

Walsh's comments are supported by a peer-reviewed study that examined the link between enforcers in the NHL and CTE, finding that 11 out of 21 players died as a result of the condition. The study, which included 6,039 NHL players from 1967 to 2022, also revealed that enforcers died at similar rates but approximately 10 years earlier than NHL controls.
Despite the evidence, Bettman continues to deny the findings, in contrast to the NFL, which has taken steps to address the issue of concussions. This regressive approach to leadership could have serious consequences for the league, potentially leading to a significant lawsuit against Bettman and the NHL owners.
