I don't think four per team is enough.. Maybe a couple more...

The most common comment I've seen on the Red Wings' one is that it's a practice jersey. They have limitations of just two colors on their palette (gray? really?) and a historically simple uniform, but at least try.

Daniel Carcillo tells HBO’s ‘Real Sports’ that psychedelic drugs helped him battle post-concussion effects
Chicago Tribune wrote:Retired Chicago Blackhawks enforcer Daniel Carcillo says it took a mind-blowing drug to save his brain — and his life.

"It was the most amazing experience," Carcillo says on the latest edition of "Real Sports with Bryant Gumbel," set to debut at 9 p.m. CST Tuesday on HBO and HBO Max

Carcillo, who sued the NHL over his concussion-related injuries, is among the former athletes on the program extolling the benefits of psychedelic drugs in helping him cope with aftereffects of brain trauma.

The research in this area, correspondent David Scott notes, is "embryonic but intriguing."

"Real Sports" opens its segment with Carcillo in the Peruvian jungle, where under supervision he would receive a potent hallucinogenic cocktail brewed from ayahuasca, a drug that's illegal in much of the world...

..Carcillo contends the ayahuasca, which had him communing with his long-dead grandparents, was transformative in ways traditional medicine, therapy and psychotherapy have not been.

"I do not suffer from any of those symptoms any longer," he says.

His wife, Ela, backs up Carcillo, saying he's a changed man.

"It's amazing," says Rick Doblin, a researcher and advocate of the therapeutic use of psychedelic drugs. "But, yes, he has rewired his brain, and because there (are) new pathways he's built in his brain, it lasts."

Doblin concedes the hallucinogens are neither a cure-all nor risk-free, but he says "benefits are often substantial."

There are other voices in Scott's report, other anecdotes shared. No experts with conflicting views are heard, however.

"I'm just trying to look for more peace, more peace of mind, less suffering," Carcillo says.

Later, he adds, "I'm living my best life by far."

I say just rewind his status to where he was at the end of last season, nullify the buyout and let the Rangers use LTIR.

Speaking of which, ESPN cancelled the ESPN on Ice podcast for this year. Can't imagine that it's all that expensive to produce a podcast. Sucks, as I really enjoyed this one.

Thanks for clarifying, I just remember reading that and having my mind blown though it's easy to believe when you think about it.
